"Pepper" was just 6 months old in the photo (unavailable). 6 weeks later whe was gone with OCD in all 6 front joints: she was given peace to save further suffering.
She was only here for too short a time - is missed terribly, but will always be remembered. She didn't deserve to suffer so.
When she died - a part of us died too.
