Abys are Everywhere – Helping people get dressed since 1742

Check this out: François Boucher, an 18th century painter from France, painted a cat that looks suspiciously like an Abyssinian into one of his works.

The painting, titled La Toilette, depicts two women getting themselves ready for something…a normal day, a grand gala, a shopping trip…and while they’re dressing, a helpful Aby is cheerfully underfoot.

Tell me that’s not an Aby! Look at that smile!
