Persephone



Persephone is Jack's younger sister. She was adopted on December 16, 2006, when she was 8-10 months old. She and Jack took to each other right away. Oh, Persephone growled at Jack a few times, because she picked it up from Whisper, who growled at her, but Jack just ignored that and they were playing together in no time. Jack enjoys catnip every once in a while, but Persephone absolutely loves it. That's her nip banana she has in the picture. Persephone loves nip so much that she has been known to go get it herself. The OTW keeps catnip in a zipped plastic bag, which is inside a tin with a tight lid, which is in a cabinet. Persephone has been known to open the cabinet, get out the tin, open the tin and try to chew open the plastic bag. She usually gets caught before she gets the bag open, but there was one memorable occasion when she spread catnip all over the floor and rolled in it ecstatically. Persephone also enjoys a good rasslin' match with Jack and playing with toys. She has an evil twin, PersePHONY, who gets into all kinds of mischief, like jumping up on tables where cats are not allowed and playing with the OTW's strings. The OTW is a weaver and the loom seems to attract PersePHONY quite a bit. Batman is Persephone's boyfriend.

                                      Persephone is Queen of the Universe.
                                      She accepts all praise, in prose or verse.
                                              She's so black and sleek
                                              And far from meek.
                                      All hail the Queen of the Universe!

Persephone might need some help for her nip addiction. It's usually not a good sign when someone commits a breaking and entry crime just to satisfy a habit...
