Looking for a cat to complete your family? Pepper just might be the girl you're looking for! This affectionate, lovely cat has lived with kids and dogs, so she's prepared to settle right in! Big family or no, Pepper is a charming lady who can't wait to give you all the feline affection you need; she's easy-going and quick to purr, and all she really wants is a best friend to keep her company through thick and thin. Plus, her little round face and big amber eyes make her pretty darn cute! Good looks, plays well with others, loves to love...what more could you ask for in a feline friend? Come meet Pepper at our adoption center today, or call us at859.873.5491 to find our more about her.
