Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)
Posted Aug 10, 2014
I remember collecting 'Bandit' from the breeder, she was perched on top of a piano batting a labradors nose. Fearless, she was. She was previously called Bandit because of her sneaky ability to steal. She'd sit in the sink, crouch low and while her previous owner was making sandwiches she'd bat her paw out and drag back some bread, or meat, whatever she could get her sneaky paws onto. One Christmas she even brought back our next door neighbours Christmas chicken! She was definitely naughty. We soon changed her name to Cobweb due to her smokey and patchy colouring. So if you're looking to buy an Abyssinian then be prepared for a trouble maker. Although a cheeky little cat she had a heart of gold. She would perch on my chest and stuff her head underneath my nose until I kissed her. She was needy of attention and she had to be top cat.
She was an intelligent cat, in her later years she knew if she sat by the fridge long enough she'd get some tuna or ham. She had expensive taste, Whiskers was not good enough for Cobweb!
She was often outside catchy rats and mice. I think she was just trying to bring us gifts. We weren't as grateful as she expected.
As much as she was a trouble maker, highly active, fussy and fiesty she was caring, playful and protective. A great cat for children to grow up with.
