Meet My Cat Abby

Abby started this cat obsession of mine. She darted out from the weeds as I drove by, a flash of white in the corner of my eye. I took her home in a box and showed her to my family. Both my daughter and I are allergic to cats and I didn't think we could keep her. Abby was a skinny, 1.2 lb fuzzball that my kids fell in love with immediately. After days of debate, we knew we couldn't give her away.

Abby aka Abigail, Gail, Abigail Kitten Marie, Original Kitty just a few days after we found her:

Here is a recent picture of Abigail. She is now 2.5 years old. (Chipotle is another one of my passions):

Abby considers herself the queen of the house. She tolerates the other cats, and it is rare to see her snuggle with one of them. She knows when it is time to eat and will sit patiently by her bowl and stare at me before feeding time. She is my husband's lap kitty. Abigail is the only one of my cats that will play fetch.
