Good to see you again Sunni! Glad the move went well.
As for keeping Pepper in, what kind of fence do you have around your back yard? If it's a privacy fence, you could rig up something around the top that can keep him in if the landlords will allow it. (You're renting right?) Basically putting fencing or mesh at a 45 degree angle around the top so he can't jump over it. Or you could build him an outside enclosure, again if the landlords will allow it. Let us know if you have those options and we can help find the right thing for you.
I'm at home today, for another couple hours, before I go to the big interview. It's at 1:00 so I would have had to leave work by 11:30 even taking 1/2 day so it wasn't worth it to go in. My supervisor knows what's going on, I told her yesterday that I would be coming down with *something* and she was pretty excited for me.
Hate to even say it, but it's been so nice outside this week. We've been in the 60s since Saturday, and are supposed to reach the 70s by this weekend. It's been so nice to be able to open the windows and air out the house. The kitties are loving it too!
