Strangely enough, Pepé also appears to have gotten “fluffier,” according to Tucker. “Not more fur necessarily, but almost like the hair he has just sticks out in every direction,” he said. “My guess is that his hair will continue to change with the seasons, and as he gets older. We heard a story about a somewhat similar cat who would lose and regrow hair in different patterns every time.”
However much fur Pepé grows or doesn’t grow, Daspin and Tucker are certain about one thing — he is perfect for their family, and rescuing him was one of the best things they did.
