Beth Hudson says her 4 1/2-month-old cat, Peanut, is playful.

Beth Hudson of Herculaneum says her pale yellow cat, Peanut, 4 1/2 months old, can be a scamp.

“He’s a little feisty, but does have his sweet side as well,” Hudson said. “He’s very playful.”

Peanut has a play area in the house he particularly enjoys.

“He has a little kitty tunnel and hides in it,” she said. “He hides in it and jumps out to surprise you.”

Hudson said she has another pet, but Peanut isn’t allowed to play with it.

“The other pet we have is a leopard gecko named Poof,” Hudson said. “We haven’t introduced them, because we don’t want Poof to die.”
