All about Penelope “Peanut”
In order to keep indoor cats inside the house it’s important to make sure that doors and windows are securely closed. It sounds obvious but cats are creative and very determined creatures and if there is a way for them to escape, they often will. This is especially true when cat owners (correctly) make the decision to turn their outdoor cats into indoor cats.
Windows are a favourite way for cats to escape. Make sure that all of the windows cannot be opened by your cat. If a window is left open slightly, some cats will use their paws to open it more fully. If there is no screen the cat can escape right then and there. If there is a screen, with just a bit of determination a cat might be able to break though it or slide it open. All you need to do to solve this problem is get a piece of wood and put it in the track of the window. Cut the length of wood so that when you place it in the window’s track, you can only open the window a few inches. Always make sure that your cat cannot squeeze through the opening space. Then to keep the wood in the track, screw it securely into the window frame.

Peanut is a very laid back, curious and friendly cat.
She loves a warm lap and caressing hands and enjoys cuddling up in bed on top of her favourite people. She delights in helping to manage the house. Some of her favourite chores are assisting with paper work or reading (by sitting on top of the material), or going into cupboards (to demonstrate where things ought to be). She has taken an active role in ruling the household! She travels well, can tolerate a bath, lets us brush her teeth, will humour us by wearing a hat and letting us snap a photo and enjoys being spoiled!She will meow to be petted, played with, fed and reassured
Aggression: Never observed towards adults and children (and my nephew has tried to sit on her). She has given the occasional love bite but is very gentle. She appears to be fine with other cats (does a lot of sniffing around). She was around a hostile cat once, Bailey my parents 7 lb, 18 years old, tiny tabby cat who chased her under a table in a corner and looked at her like she was insane.
Fears or dislikes: Vacuums or other loud noises (if she hears a vacuum she will hide in or under something)
Playtime: Plays with fur mice (sometimes fetches), pom poms, balls, jumps at feather wands, chases laser light. Her favourite game is playing hide & seek. She hides in the long box that her scratching post came in (she uses it more than her post), waits for a fur mouse to be thrown and then runs after it.
~ Penelope can’t have any organza, tulle or ribbon she will eat it with a crazed look in her eyes…she thinks she’s a goat in a cat suit!
