As the rabbits say, “one cloud feels lonely.” Would you believe I got another email about two more Abys who need homes?
Here’s their story: “My sister-in-law had been sick and recently passed away. I have been taking care of her two sibling Abyssinians (one male and one female) for approximately two months. I go to her condo to feed them, which is approximately a 20 minute ride twice a day. She had made arrangements for them to go to a friends’ home, but I learned that that was only going to be temporary, so I decided to not move them twice. My husband and I are planning to take them to a no-kill shelter during the first week of September. However, our preference would be to find them a good home. They are 9 years old. The male, Fritz, is very lovable but the female, Lily, is extremely skittish, more so because her routine has been quite disrupted.
My son is extremely allergic to cats so I cannot take them. I do want to keep them together.
Lily is the skittish cat and not very affectionate with me but she has probably been traumatized by the loss of my sister-in-law. I know Fritz would be easier to place alone but I need to honor Charlotte’s wishes and keep them together. They are, and have always been, indoor cats.
They are in Mystic, CT. They both have had their vaccinations as well as exams within the last few weeks. I took Fritz to the vet and had a mobile vet came to the condo yesterday for Lily. They are also both up to date with their rabies shots. Fritz is a little overweight but they are both healthy. I have all their papers, and I believe the name of the breeder is there as well (their breeder no longer breeds and will “beat the bushes” for them to be adopted). They were born in June, 2003.”
9 years old isn’t old! Tessie just turned 9 this month! If you would like two Connecticut Abys Leslie Acquaviva firstname.lastname@example.org
