Pepper is just adorable in every sense and she has real character; one which she shows in her variety of comical facial expressions.  

She has a real bond with her humans and is the boss of her feline household where she also lives with another British short hair and a Sphynx.  Pepper can be quite territorial and keeps a keen eye on her local neighbourhood by peeking through a peephole in her garden fence.  Should another cat dare to pass by, she will hiss and scare them off, but she’s all mouth; in reality, she is a gentle, calm and placid cat that loves her family. Home.

One of her many quirks is that she loves plastic carrier bags and if one should be left lying about in the house, she will always go and sit on it, claiming it as her own property.  She’s also a fan of interacting with the iPad and enjoys watching cat videos on the TV.  In many ways, she is incredibly human-like!

Despite her refined appearance, Pepper is less elegant in the house and loves to rough and tumble with her feline housemates, particularly Cozmo.
