Abby Baby!

At the end of May I adopted a 2.5 a beautiful pure white Longhair Exotic kitten, then 2.5 months old. I named her Abby. This weekend she will turn five months old - since adoption she has grown so much and more than doubled her weight.

Of course I couldn't resist posting an image of her here; it was taken last weekend during morning playtime. She is as sweet and funny as can be. Such a joy!

What a beauty, DougG! But we really do need more than just one picture...you know...so we can be sure she's really as lovely as she looks in this shot!! These things do need to be verified! (Plus it makes a wonderful excuse for us to pester you for more pics! )

Abby is just gorgeous, DougG. What is her temperament like? When we had our Persian I found her to be a very sweet, gentle cat. Not boisterous. Curious about the different breeds, what they are like to live with.

I bet she can get around in the dark good , I read cats feel their way around in the dark with their whiskers and hair in their ears. she is very cute.

Nice and blue! I'll post a colour pic as soon as I have one that I'm happy with - she's a pretty busy little girl and I have dozens of totally blurry shots of her.

Abby is ten months old now, and just hit 6 pounds.

Abby will turn one year old on March 10th.

She had her first heat last week. Surprise!

I know we are lucky it didn't happen sooner.

Back to normal now thank gawd.

She is at the vet overnight and will be spayed tomorrow morning. I'll be pretty uptight until I talk to the clinic tomorrow after lunch. May leave her in until Friday morning to keep her quiet and resting, and as a post-op precaution.

Poor poo, not lookin' happy in her clinic cage. The clinic staff think she is the bee's knees. I do too.

Poor dear. She'll be as happy to be home again as you will be to have her there! Sending along some for healing!

Abby was a very good girl after her surgery - I was worried she would be at her incision all the time and I'd have to put a cone on her but no, she left it alone and it is healing very nicely. The sutures were removed this past Wednesday and she is doing just great.

Glad to hear Abby's surgery and recovery went off well. She's still just as adorable too!

Abby graciously interrupted her morning tear through the house to let me get a quick shot of her. Taken this morning in pretty low light, the sun was just starting to peek through the back windows.

I love the color of her eyes! Is she as soft as she looks?

Abby's coat is indeed pretty downy and soft, but very different than our other Himmies - she doesn't have a heavy undercoat which mats up in the blink of an eye. Maybe that will change as she gets older.
