Robette was the family cat. He was a tabby cat that loved to get on the kitchen counter and get food of any sort to eat.
Robette, aka the 'PEEP' and 'Squirt' loved to eat, and on occasion sprayed where he should not have sprayed. He did not much like other cats only humans and would lay on my mom's husband's belly. Peep slept in the bed with my mom and bagged for food in the kitchen. Peep was sort of friends with my cats Edle and Winston.
Robette would do cartwheels up and down the hallway to entertain my cat Winston. Winston would watch Peep do his cartwheels along the hall, which he thought was very entertaining and then Winston would do some cartwheels. So Peep and Winston would take their turns in doing cartwheels and running sideways (with their heads turned side ways) up and down the hall. For some reason this would happen at night about 10 pm they would start this routine. Edle the black cat never participated in this ritual, because he thought it was beneath him and did not care for the Peep.
Overall Robette was a good cat and we miss him. He once got stuck up a tree about 75 feet for 3 days and my step brother Dean had to climb up and get him and stick Peep in a pillow case to bring him down.
Edle and Robette would fight on occasion, and Edle chased Robette across the kitchen counter to get away. Sometimes he would crawl into the bedroom window to steal Edle & Winstons food. Robette would go out the front door and "turn a sharp right" to go to the bedroom window, and then we knew that he was going to sneak into get Edle's food.
In summer of 1994 I was going camping and Robette and I were the only 2 at the house, and I had all my camping gear lined up by the front door. About an hour before my friend came Robette, went and sprayed on all my camping gear right in front of me. He ran and I went to the door opened it up and let the cat out before I thought of shaking him silly! He did that just to be mean, and I thought only humans did stuff liked that.
Robette was more like a brother than a cat to me, and as we got older I finally liked him and he liked me. Now I miss the little piss ant. We called him "Spray Babie," and now I miss spray babie.
Peep liked laying on puzzles and playing with the pieces. Boxes, bags, and baskets where more of his favorite things to play with.
Peep had dog brothers called Bruno & Bart. Sometimes they would all take naps together in front of wood stove or pellet stove. One thing they all had in common was their love for treats.
There was one thing Bruno & Bart LOVED that PEEP did not and that was camping and traveling; Which Robette never wanted to do, because he never wanted to go inside of the 5th wheel or the camping trailer even if they were just parked in yard. I guess Peep was just afraid to go inside of them, just like the car. Peep would climb on top of the 5th wheel and trailer, but never inside?
Peep we can see you, Love Cindy & Winston.
