just burst!! I have wanted a purebred ruddy abyssinian ever since I was a teenager. My dream came true today. I found a 7 yr-old female purebred abyssinian listed on petfinders just an hour from my house. Better yet, this cat was raised in a LOVING home by an elderly woman and was never abused. She could no longer care for her cat and reluctantly handed her over to a purebred cat rescue. I was second in line. A woman went to look at her and decided to NOT take her because she (the aby) didn't "bond" with this woman. (What cat bonds to a complete stranger in stressful circumstances anyway?) Her loss, my gain! She drove up from Chicago to Kenosha WI to look at her and decided to pass. I got the phone call and went to look at her. She is GORGEOUS, VERY SWEET, and VERY FAT (she will be put on a diet) She has been nothing but very sweet and friendly since I brought her home. I am glad most people don't want cats older than 5. They pass up some real gems because of their misconceptions of "older" kitties. Holly is very healthy except for her weight. Sorry for the ramble, I am just so excited I can't believe it!!
