Arrival Story:
I am Abby's second owner. Her original family had either surrendered her to the pound or the local cat rescue organization. This organization would take all the adoptable cats slated for termination from the pound and find them a home. According to the volunteer, her original owners thought she "got into too much trouble." What kitten doesn't?? Abby was about six months old when I spotted her at PetSmart (where the org was showcasing her). I adopted her because she had such a great personality and a cool coat. The volunteers told me she must be part Abbyssinian because of her ticked fur. When Abby was younger she did get into trouble. Here are some things she used to do: eat paper, chew leather shoes, play with and hide hair bands, pee on piles of paper if they were left there too long. Thankfully she is much more behaved now.

A Tabby/Aby's Story

I hate the groomers

So my hoomin took me back to PetSmart to have my dingleberries cleaned up last week. I waited in my carrier with all the stinky dogs for 2 and a half hours and they never got to me! It was so stuffy in the there. Ugh! My hoomin was so mad she took me home without my bath. I heard her say she's never coming back so that's good.


I got groomed!

My hoomin recently took me to PetSmart to get a bath. At least we didn't see the vet! But, really - I'm a short-haired cat! So, I had a bit of cat dandruff going on near my tail, but was it really necessary to go the groomers? I was so embarrassed. The good news is I smell really really good and my fur is sooo soft.

Now, give me a treat!


Woohoo! I'm Cat of the Day!

I feel so special! I'd like to thank my parents, even though they just had two teeth pulled. I'd also like to thank the good people at Catster for choosing ME! Thanks everyone for the special COTD gifts!
