Pepper the Queen!


GREAT NEWS!

Pepper is the co-winner of the "Best Picture" category in Petfinder's first ever "Whiskers Awards" photo contest!

Thank you to our blogging friends, blog followers, family and friends who so faithfully voted for this spicy senior. We were very moved by your willingness to vote daily, and to help get the word out. Pepper's victory wouldn't have been possible without you.

We hope her win will bring her more attention from potential adopters (and hopefully a forever home).

In case you're wondering, Queen Pepper is handling her new status as a world-famous cat with great aplomb. We asked her how she can be so cool about all of this, and her reply was something to the effect of, "...well, I've always KNOWN I was the Queen."

PAWS will also be receiving 20 cool “Hide, Perch & Go” boxes, which are designed to give cats control over their environment, reduce stress and help them adapt to their new surroundings, and a five-tier cat tower donated by Kuranda USA.

Thanks again for your friendship and support. We appreciate you! :)

YAY!!! Pepper deserved to win, her picture (and purrsonality profile) captured my heart.

I'm a little jealous on the Kuranda cat tower. I've had my eye on the big tower for a while since it can be completely sterilized but just not in the budget.

Pepper - claim that tower girl - you deserve to be on the very top (and someone should get you a kitty tiara and take a picture of you wearing it).
