This Friday, Charlie and Patty Peppers will be going to Petsmart. We sure are going to miss their crazy little faces around here. Who else will miss them? I think Jake will, because Jake loves him some little Peppers. And the little Peppers – especially Patty – love him right back.

Jake likes to hang out in this basket condo in the mornings (it’s located near a heat vent, and is sometimes partially on top of said heat vent), and more often than not Patty will climb in there with him for a while.

Even up on his platform in the kitchen, Jake can’t get away from her. She climbs up there and is like “I’m sure you were wondering where I was!”

That smile on her face kills me dead. If that’s not a look o’ love, I don’t know what is.

“Wait for me!”

(Pardon the blurriness.)

“Here I am! I know you were worried I wouldn’t find you!”

Sugarbutt’s all “Dude. Kittens be crazy.”
Jake: “Don’t I know it. This one’s obsessed with me.”

Charlie was sound asleep, and Jake decided that he needed a bath. So he went to work. What, like he needs an invitation?

Pardon me, sir, your tunes appear to be loony.
(Jake wonders if the Sons are as tasty as Charlie Peppers.)


2011: Meet Alice.
2010: I’m still not going to talk about it yet because I don’t want to jinx it into not happening, but I wanted to make sure y’all know about it in advance so you’re not caught by surprise!
2009: No entry.
2008: No entry.
2007: The boy – Moonman – was perfectly willing to get into the cat carrier, but the girl – Moondance – did NOT want to get into the carrier, and I had to chase her down and wrestle her into the carrier.
2006: No entry.
2005: No entry.

  1. Robyn, you are MAKING my new year. So when do the Sons get to break out of solitary (complete with Cat Cottage, a million toys, and a slave to their every whim) and mix with the gen pop? I’ll miss the beautiful Peppers — a lot — and hope like mad that they get to stay together. And why, pray tell, hasn’t Architectural Digest come calling? Surely a feature on Fred’s cat perches is in order.

  2. Okay, my heart is breaking because the little peppers are leaving. I know it is very silly, but can’t help thinking about the condition these two little guys were in when they arrived. I hope they arrive (together) at their permanent home (together) soon (together)! Do you think someone out there might have gotten my message? 😀

  3. Aww your spoiling us!! close ups,action shots ,jumping AND licking,and smiling kittys and humourous dialogue.
    Godd Luck Lil’ Peppers we will miss you.

  4. Charlie is leaving… :*(

    I love my little Charlie. I hope someone perfect finds him lickety-split (and Patty, too). If I didn’t already have 4, my a$$ would be driving down there again to get him.

  5. Hello from England! I’ve been reading for so long. I love your site, it is my favourite cat blog out there. I loved the link the other day to the cat greetings card and it reminded me that each time we hear the music (I wish I could remember what it was from, and the tune when the cat comes in) I like singing along. “fluffy little pussy cat meow, meow, meow, purr purr purr. Fluffy little pussy cat with whiskers and a tail.”
    Anyway, I hope you get what I mean.
    On one other note I made use of “boxing day” here in the uk to turn boxes in to a cat tank. I’m not sure they fully approve yet but my cats will one day turn against me and use the tank. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jiva/6575962873/in/photostream. Hope you like it! Its not as good as a shop bought one but gave me hours of fun making it.

  6. I think what we have learned is while all these kitties are great personalities you obviously have kept the best personality kitten ever, Jake! Its amazing how he is with all the kittens/cats from what we see.

  7. I will miss me some Patty Peppers. I hope Patty, Charlies, and the awesome Everett, Lucy, and Sally Peppers all find wonderful homes lickety-split!

  8. jen in NH, I second absolutely everything you said about our dear Charlie and Patty Peppers!!! I’m going to miss seeing them so much!! And please, oh please let them be adopted together…

  9. Oh, I’m going to miss Charlie and Patty! I, too, had hoped just a little that they could become permanent residents….

  10. I’m going to miss Charlie and those eyes! I would love for someone to adopt him and Patty and then start a blog with lots of photos!!!
