Sanna-Leena Santapakka posted a fabulous picture of her fawn Aby, Sketski, to the The Abyssinian Cat Club on Facebook:
Isn’t it great? I love shots of Abys talking.
Bastet knows, I have plenty of photos of Jacoby with his mouth open.
He talks constantly; he actually talks more than any of the Siamese I’ve lived with. He actually talks to himself sometimes; I’ll hear him in the other room, all by himself, chatting away.
Jake wishes Hyvää juhannusta ja yötön yö to his friend Sketsi in Finland!
Another found Abyssinian…and this one really hits close to home!
I got this email this afternoon from the NAR List about an Abyssinian up a tree in Attleboro, MA:
I am hoping that your organization has a local chapter or contact here in Massachusetts. I rescued an adolescent Abyssinian about two weeks ago – from three stories up in a tree! I have posted notices and called all area shelters to alert them that I have this little girl and am looking for her family. I cannot believe that no one appears to be out frantically looking for this purebred Aby. She had a decorative collar but no microchip or other identification. I cannot keep her. I already have three cats of my own. I want to find her a loving forever home and am being very careful not to let her fall into the hands of anyone who would just sell her for a profit.
Neighborhood reports are sketchy, but she appears to have been on her own for at least a week before I took her in. She had become very, very skinny. As it turned out, she would be in the tree top for three days through wind and rain before I could find help to rescue her. I named her Aerial. Efforts to find her owner/family have been unsuccessful and we cannot keep her. Looking for a loving forever home for a little girl who deserves someone who will adore her for the special kitty she is. She’s had a tough start with a family who doesn’t seem to care about her disappearance, “rescue” teams who couldn’t be bothered to save her, and now a foster home that can’t keep her. Here’s hoping that these difficult early chapters of her life are about to end as a new, happy story begins for her future!
Wow, right? It’s like something you’d see on a Lifetime movie. Poor girl! It’s been fairly good weather around here, but it has been raining and windy.
My friend Meg is in that neck of the woods, too; I wonder if she knows anything about her?
