Pepperpot from Perkiomenville
by Alice Portlock
She was a tabby who should have been named Greta Garbo because she liked to be alone, like the Movie star. She would not let me pick her up until she was dying.
She lived with my other cat, a calico named Pauline and me. Before she died, she reached out to Pauline and Pauline hit her in the head. No love lost I think but they tolerated each other.
Ode to Pepperpot
Pepperpot my lovely
Pepperpot my sweet.
One day I am sure you and I will meet.
You will let me hold you and give you lots of treats.
