This is from the National Abyssinian Rescue site:http://www.abys.net/NAR/adopt.htm
"Chicago area. Jasmine is a ruddy Aby that is ten years old and has to be placed due to severe allergies on the part of the twin babies. The pediatrician is insisting. Her owner describes her this way
"Jasmine is incredibly loyal and loves children (we have three little girls aged 3 and under). She is also versatile -- as willing to nap in a patch of sunlight as play, depending on the mood of the people around her. She had a brother who died of cancer several months ago. She loved to play with him and would tolerate his more aggressive personality. She also lives with a dog with no problem.
She has moved with me from Chicago, to D.C. and back to Chicago again and never had any adjustment issues. She has a wonderful appetite and usually cleans her bowl. Still, she is incredibly whisp-like -- a good thing for her since she loves to be carried around. She purrs easily, seeks out cuddles, and has truly been the most wonderful cat I've known. I'm hoping that she'll end up with a family or individual who appreciates her as much as I'm sure she'll appreciate them -- that's just the kind of cat she is. I am so sorry to have to give her up for adoption -- if not for my twins' severe allergy, I would never dream of it."
