My gorgeous black kitty Pepper is my snuggle partner. She will curl up next to me and put her little arms around one of my arms. We got her from a lady that I worked with who owned three large dogs, one of which was a German Shepard. The lady loved Pepper a lot and took great care of her, but she was worried for Pepper's safety since on more than one occasion, she found the dogs growling over her, with her cowering. I am glad that she gave Pepper to us. She has been a most precious gift. She has taught me about love. She loves my small children and never scratches them. We recently adopted a kitten, and she has taken to him like he is her own. She cuddles with him and grooms him, and even shares her food. She does have dental problems, which she came with. The vet told me that it is common for the type of cat. She is missing several teeth on one side of her mouth. Other than that, she is pretty healthy and completely low maintenance. She has beautiful green eyes and the softest black fur ever, which requires very little work to stay gorgeous. However, she definitely doesn't complain when I groom her. She loves to be brushed. She is a great cat.
