I got this alert from one of the Aby lists, and it’s right in my own back yard…Sonic looks like a purebred fawn Aby to me!
“This poor lad was left abandoned outside our shelter in a box. He was extremely terrified and nervous of new people and noises. We cannot imagine what poor sonic went through before he got to us.. but he had all the markings of an abused animal. It has taken him quite a few months to come around and trust, but his time is here. He needs a quiet home with an older person or couple who will understand all he has been through and give him the time he deserves to really show his true colors. No dogs, maybe one other cat, tops. He still is exremely fragile, so please…Serious Inquiries Only!”
Can you imagine? An Aby? Left in a box on a shelter’s doorstep? Wow. Sonic is in Meridan, CT, and his adoption information can be found at the Rescue Me website.
The Rescue Me site also shows states with other Abys available for adoption (one in CA, 2 in MI, etc.), but most of them aren’t actually Abyssinians. However, there are two other Abys looking for homes…
Phineas, in Austin, TX, appears to be a young black silver Aby and Ava, in New York, who looks like she might be either a red or a fawn. These two, however, appear to be in homes currently and are looking to be rehomed. Sonic is in a shelter.
