   Leave a treat for Abby

Crabby Abby

Quick Bio:

May 15th 1994

Avoiding the other two cats. (She threw a fit when I first brought home Isabelle and acted like a murderous psychopath toward her ( and toward me too! ) hissing ,etc. I had to keep them in separate rooms for at least three weeks before she calmed down.)

Having Belle or Beau try to play with her: maybe because of her age since she's well into middle age, and they're just out of adolesence.

Favorite Toy:
She doesn't play -- honest! (Unless it's me when I'm lying down, and she keeps nudging and nudging me until I stroke her.)

Favorite Nap Spot:
My bed, or on my hip when I'm lying on my side on the couch or bed. (I've never had a cat choose my hip as a favorite spot to nap and sometimes feel bad about getting up or changing position since she's often a fixture there!!!)


Arrival Story:
I got her from a pet store when she was about four months old. She was the cutest kitten among a bunch of kittens and the only one with blue eyes, which I admit I'm a sucker for. She was only the second cat I had ever owned. Unfortunately, with her came fleas (even though the pet store had done a flea bath before I took her home), and worse than that, the fleas had tapeworm eggs. By the time I discovered those horrible, gross things, they had spread to my other cat as well. I was sickened by their presence, but fortunately they were quickly and easily eliminated in both cats with medication. That was my first experience with worms, and I hope and expect my last. This is also a warning about pet store purchases and the need for caution if one purchases from one of these stores. (Fortunately, there seem to be fewer and fewer of these stores, and I now heed the warnings about buying a puppy or kitten from them.)
