If you are considering a new cat and want to gain a family member, you might consider an Abyssinian. Um, actually, you better consider an Aby. They come in four colors: Ruddy, Red, Fawn, and Blue. They are a highly intelligent breed, and very playful. In fact, they are known to be like kittens in their adult life. Greg's grandmother has a 13 year old Aby, and she is still very playful! However, they are very loving and sweet. When Dexter is in his "cuddle mode," he begs for you to hold him (although people say Abys don't like to be held) and love on him. He is so intuitive. Whenever I feel stressed or upset, he comforts me. When I'm working on household tasks, he tries to "help" me, although he is in the way most of the time! And, does your cat play fetch? 'Cause mine does.
I know I posted this before, but I know you are definitely not sick of it. And I know you probably watched in about 20 times. We won't mention how many times I've watched it.
And if you aren't completely won over by the amazingness known as the Abyssinian, you should know that celebrities adore them, too! Here are some photos of celebrities with their Abys.
|Chloe Sevigny. Abys like to perch on your shoulders, so I think this is cute.|
|Nicholas Cage. Looks like he's sniffing his Aby's butt, but I guess when you love your Aby so much, you will do anything for it!|
|David Bowie. OMG. Seriously. If this doesn't win you over to an Aby, what will?!|
|Carly Simon. Looks like that Aby doesn't like to sit still.|
|Nicole Richie. I am curious as to why her blue Aby is in a cast. I am going to assume she is saving this gorgeous cat's life.|
I literally squealed when I saw all these photos of celebrities and their Abys. You should too. They're the best. Definitely the coolest cats around. But I might be a little biased.
