Finally found my Aby

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
As some of you know, I have been hoping to find an Abyssinian to adopt for some time now. I knew I did not want to buy one but to rescue one. After a few times that had looked promising, I finally gave up. And that's when my Aby found me!

Tinker (as he was called then) is a neutered male Ruddy, between 2 and 5 yrs old and was living in terrible conditions when the Humane Society rescued him. He'd been shut in a small, dark, mold-ridden bathroom for over a year with little to no human contact. He'd been declawed on all four paws His previous owner called him "Stinky".

He is such a love bug! He's thrilled to have people paying attention to him and loves to be held and cuddled and petted. What a wonderful personality! He's already had brief introductions to a couple of the kitties here, and they've gone extremely well.

This is our last addition until we hit the lottery and can buy a bigger house!

We've renamed him Khepera, after the Egyptian God of the rising sun and rebirth. He's had a rebirth of sorts, leaving such a bad place and coming somewhere where all his needs and wants will be attended. Here are some pics of this handsome, sweet, wonderful guy.

I said that last night, he looks like a Cougar or Mountain Lion!!

He is such a sweetheart, I am so in love with him. Making sure I spend extra time with the other kitties so there is no jealousy!

Sue, he's GORGEOUS!!!! I'm so glad he found you! I'll be praying you win the lottery, because you NEED a bigger house, LOL! ...and I know exactly how you feel. We're still pretending like we're going to adopt out little Mae, but forget about me... I don't think Gary'll be able to do it. And we're maxed out with four already! We need a bigger motorhome, LOL!

He is SO handsome! : Not to mention one lucky little guy to have you adopt him. I'm glad he's going to be in such a good home now... I can't believe how his previous owners treated him.

Sue, after the past couple of months seeing you get heart broken time and time again trying to rescue an Aby, it's so wonderful to hear you so happy. Tears of joy are running down my face! He is absolutely gorgeous! The name fits him perfectly...such a great story behind it all.
Congrats once again on the newest addition to your family!
BTW, I hope you win the lotto too so you can rescue even more precious furbabes!

He is in hiding in the attic now since the dreaded vaccuum monster appeared earlier. He does come to me when I call him!

No, no 16. Not unless we win the lottery or a long lost relative bequeaths us a fortune.
