This is Sgt. Mortimer von Pepperstein on the day my old roommate Sylva found her in the dumpster behind our building in DTLA.
She quickly became the queen of the place. I moved in a few months later and this is the day we met.
She was pretty much my favorite thing in the world right from the beginning. And I think she felt the same way about me much to the annoyance of Sylva:) When she wasn't out getting into things and interrupting photo shoots in the studio she was asleep on the foot of my bed next to where I was working on the computer.
Until it was time for me to go to bed, then she would come snuggle up next to me so I could scratch her belly until one of us fell asleep.
I think growing up in the studio with people always coming and going gave her a very laid back attitude. She'd put up with almost anything. Like having baths and getting her hair dyed:)
As you can see she didn't mind cameras at all and in fact she would often crash photo shoots.
She also had a very needy sister named Selene
Leaving the Sgt. was the hardest part of moving out of DTLA. Whenever I'm in town I swing by and cuddle her for a bit though. I love that cat!
