Peter and Ssebo
What's your purrmance story with your cat?
Nothing beats sharing a good book with your cat quietly sleeping against you.
Ssebo (an African word meaning "sir") wandered into our house with matted fur and looking unkempt and hungry. After a check at the Vet where he was cleared of everything except very matted fur, he received a lion's cut shave. Despite living in the woods on his own for a few years he has become the most affectionate cat I have known.
He waits for me to get into bed each night before walking over the bed to snuggle down, roll on his back and present his head for a kiss.
When I am outside in the garden he often appears from one of his hiding places and holds his front paws up to be picked up and wrap his paws around my neck.
He is quite vocal, always greeting and asking for pick-ups and food. He has a funny voice and snores when he sleeps.
Ssebo, also known as "black thing" is an equal family member and enjoys his indoor/outdoor life year round, even sleeping outside during the day in a sheltered basket when the temperature drops into the minus teens. He likes being in the car and welcomes visitors and newcomers alike.
Ssebo is the first face we see in the morning and the last we see at night.
