Sam’s cat, Bebe, gave birth to two kittens. But we lost Pepper, Sam’s Persian cat.
She learned to scale the fence, went out last night and hasn’t come back. Stray cats don’t get second glances around here but a pure breed cat can be sold.
I feel so sorry for Sam. She refuses to go to school and has been crying and I don’t know what to say to her. And, shit, this had to happen a week before the trimestral tests.
Even Speedy was crying early this morning. Of all the cats we’ve ever had, Pepper was the most loved. I want to feel hopeful but when we lost the male Persian kitten, Salt, a couple of months ago, it took me a long time to get over the shitty feeling.
On the bright side, we have a new house helper and that should allow me to catch up with everything blog related — if I can stop thinking about Pepper.

She’s back!!! Speedy woke us up with Pepper in his arms. Ooooh, joy! She was filthy. But who cares? As long as she’s home. She was also very hungry and we fed her twice in a span of two hours. After the kids had left for school, Speedy and I gave Pepper a bath. She’s sleeping now. :)
