Pepper was found at an empty home in Dry Fork Virginia and had been abandoned for about 2 weeks. We brought Pepper home and he became part of our family. We had two Shelties and after about a day of getting to know each other all three became quick friends. The photo was shortly after we brought Pepper home, he is now going on 3 years old and is considerably bigger. Pepper was our first rescue, We have since rescued another kitten from a home that had burned down, her name is Pippi.
