Welcome to the first installment of "This (Pet), That Room." The idea behind this series is to see how a pet and a room match up, whether because of color or style—or just my whim.
This white, long-haired cutie is named Pumpernickel. Long-haired cats shed quite a bit. By putting Pumpernickel in a light-colored room, you won't see cat fur everywhere. That doesn't mean you don't have to clean up after her, just not as often.
This also works on another level. The living room decor is softly colored and elegant, and so is Pumpernickel. I can just imagine her curled up on the back of the sofa, looking out the window at birds flying by, or snuggled up in front of the fireplace licking her paws after dinner on a chilly evening.
What do think? Do you match your pet to your room? Or is that just too fussy? And isn't Pumpernickel the cutest?
