Peanut the Cat

The tiny kitten was found covered in ants in a backyard in San Diego County. The property owner thought the kitten was dead and as he picked up the apparent corpse with a shovel, the kitten mewed. After being nursed back to health, Peanut moved to Joshua Tree in the spring of 2000. Peanut had eight great years that included lots of sleeping, hunting, avoiding bobcats, owls and coyotes and spending summers in the cool of the Sierra.
