Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted Jun 15, 2015
My Abyssinian is the most quiet of all the cats I have owned, and she is easily frightened, but I believe a lot of this is due to the improper treatment she received during the first few weeks of her life before she was rescued by the Humane Society. Otherwise, the cat is quite amicable. One thing that I have noticed recently is that since the time my Norwegian Forest Cat passed away, she has become much more sociable. This leads me to believe that some of her reticence is also a consequence of her accepting the dominance of other, larger cats. She has a very clean coat and is the most resistant to fleas--she grooms quite often and quite thoroughly, and likes having her neck and throat scratched and rubbed even more thoroughly. The only health problem she has had thus far in her 12.5 years has been cataracts in her eyes, which seem to be variant in their severity. She doesn't require a lot of attention to be happy, although she likes hanging about around your feet just to make sure you're their. I'm positive that she secretly adores all of our love.
