"Please pass the pepper." Hey, why do people always say, "Salt and pepper"? Why don't they ever say, "Pepper and salt"? I'm a black adult male cat called Pepper, and I was found as a stray with my pal Salt in Red Wing. We were feeling mighty shaky when we got here because we were so scared. We were both hissy and growly, and sometimes I would bolt out of the kennel. Maybe I kind of missed the daily grind out on the streets of Red Wing. We had no interest in playing at first. I'm a peppery guy, but if you approach me slowly, I like very gentle petting. With the proper seasoning, like a sprinkle of patience and a dash of purr-sistence, Salt and I have come around and are letting our true selves emerge. Now we love to play, running all over the room, batting at toys and playing chase games. You'll love us both. He's the Salt to my Pepper. We're a bonded pair and must be adopted together.

Adoption fee $100 + microchip fee $30 + tax
