Peppercorn is a magnificently handsome and super adorable classic marble tabby. He is a timid boy and shy around new people and will hide under furniture – he tends to hide low versus hiding high (cat trees, etc.). But once he’s comfortable, he’ll sneak into bed with you after you fall asleep. He doesn’t chase toys but he does like “da bird” toy and will come out and run and jump and try to catch it even when visitors are present. He is very fond of disemboweling catnip toys so they have to be extremely sturdy for them to survive. Peppercorn really likes food and cannot be free-fed, or he will gorge himself. He lost 4 pounds over 1.5 years with controlled feeding. He is currently eating ¼ cup of dry food twice daily. He is not overly fond of canned food and he will vocalize when he wants food. Peppercorn has been diagnosed with asthma. Asthma in cats is an inflammatory condition of the airways; Peppercorn’s asthma has been very well controlled on a low dose of oral steroids. With very low dose, intermittent prednisone, Peppercorn has an excellent quality of life and no episodes of coughing or wheezing and would still make a great fur kid! The cost of prednisone is less than $20 a month. Peppercorn was originally found alone, hungry, and scared alongside of a road by someone who was out jogging. He was adopted as a kitten and later found as an adult and taken to WCAS who contacted us due to his microchip.
