She was born at Carraig Dúlra, an organic farm in Wicklow, as one of a litter of six. One of my colleagues volunteers there and advertised that they were looking for homes for kittens and I said we’d take one. I slightly wish I’d said we’d take two…isn’t she lovely?
Her sex is not absolutely certain but my colleague was fairly sure we were getting a female. Anyway, we are calling her Pepper, which seems gender neutral (though the boys suggested it thinking of Peppa Pig), at least for the moment.
