I wish I had more pictures of Pepsi on my phone. I have to do something the old way to show more pictures of Pepsi.
Take his pictures, scan them into the computer then upload them to the phone or iPad.
I will share a story. When Pepsi came into our lives I did not know anything about the personality of a Maine Coon. Our veterinarian told us two things.
A Maine Coon’s personality closely resembles a dog and they love to fetch like a dog. The vet was correct!! (1) Pepsi never wanted to be by himself—- he had to be with us or the dogs. The dogs loved him dearly and treated him as an equal.
(2) Anything that was small enough for him to carry in his mouth he would fetch. A ball of paper, little stuffed animal, etc. We would throw something across the room, he would run, pick it up with his mouth, bring it back and drop it in front of us so we would do it all over again.
Pepsi was an indoor kitty because he did not have any claws. He came into our lives in 1997 and at the time I did not know declawing a kitty was very bad.
In 1999, we moved into our home. If the weather was nice we would be outside with O’Malley our first Westie. Pepsi was in the house, saw us on the outside and started crying. We knew Pepsi wanted to be with us but we could not just let him walk around on the outside —-he might get spooked over something and run away.
It took about five minutes to come up with a Tony the Tiger Great idea. When we were outside enjoying the weather —-Pepsi was also outside ——sitting in a great big dog kennel.
Then one by one each dog would be crying because they wanted to sit inside the kennel with Pepsi. For many years, three Terriers and Pepsi would would just lay inside the kennel.
These memories are so precious to me. Now Pepsi has his forever sleep in his garden.
