Jep accepted most of the changes in spring weather with resignation, sleeping indoors with the coming of clouds and rain, strolling into the yard and napping when the warm spring sun peeked through the clouds - occasionally waking and halfheartedly barking at feline passers-by.

These general attacks on his character and residence would launch a barrage of retaliatory and sincere barking that reminded one of earlier days when he actively sought out worthy opponents to test his valor.
