Happy Gotcha Day to Sisfur Abby!

That’s right! On this day, 8 years ago, my mom and dad brought sisfur Abby home!

We gots her this really cool scratchy rug but I’m not sure if she’s gotten the hang of it yet.

Um, aren't you s'posed to scratch the TOP of it?

Now, I know we don’t talk abouts her much on my bloggie because, see, she tends to be kinda…well, you know…normal. But she’s a super wonderful part of our family so I thought we’d celebrate by telling you eight things about her – one for every year she’s been here.

1. It took her about a year to really warm up to my mom and dad. They think it’s cuz she lived in so many different places (at least 4, for sure) in the 6 months before she got adopted. So she prolly didn’t know that this was her forever and ever home – and she didn’t want to get attached. But now she’s all sorts of luvey-dovey with them.

2. She LUVS being brushed and petted but does NOT luv being picked up.

3. She doesn’t really “meow.” It’s more of a squeak.

4. She will not eat anything that’s not dry kitteh food or dry kitteh treats. Not even tuna or cheese!! (Crazy, huh?)

5. She might have the softest fur of any kitteh EVER. (Everyone always comments on it, and she’s quite proud of it.)

6. If our water bowl starts getting too low, she goes and sits on the toilet seat. She never drinks the toilet water. She just sits there until somebuddy notices her, and as soon as they go to fill up the water bowl, she hops down.

7. She’s pretty easy-going and doesn’t ever gets her furs ruffled. But she sure knows how to put Cap’n Ripley in his place.

8. She will not play with me no matter how many times I poke her with my nose.

So happy, happy Gotcha Day, Dear Abby (heehee)! We’re awfully glad you’re part of our family!

    Big slurps, HoneyBuzz

    Happy gotcha Day Abby!!!!!!!!!


  4. Happy Gotcha day to Abby!!!
    She really is a beautiful (and interesting) kitty…a great addition to your family. What makes her even more interesting is that she has a zebra toy – just like Toby has/had. He’s chewed it up substantially, but it can still be recognised as a Zebbie, although the little squeaker thingy has been eliminated. 🙂
    Sending lotsaluv to you all

  5. Happy Gotcha Day little kitteh who lives with Miss Mayzie. You should try playing with her.


  6. Happy Gotcha to Abby! She sounds like a most pawfect kitty. That’s a wonderful picture of her, too, up top. She’s very beautiful. Many happy returns to her on her special day.

  12. Happy Gotcha day Abby. We sure were happy to hear more about you. You are like a lot of the kitties around here. We don’t like to be picked up either. And we love our dry food. You sure are a pretty kitty. So glad you found that wonderful forever home. You Mom sounds like such a super person. She certainly has been nice to Mayzie too. Take care and have a great day.

  13. Happy birthday to you sisfur, Mayzie! Stumpy would love a kitteh of her own. Unfortunately, the kitteh would not love Stumpy!
    I wish you had called, tucker! Stumpy and Fenway could have showed you and Corbin the local scene!

    Happy Gotcha Day Abby!!!

  15. I dunno what happened up there! blogger is so weird!!!!!
    Stumpy and me

  16. What a wonderful kittie!!! Some of those things reminded mom of her last kittie… esp the empty waterbowl thing! Her last kittie would sit by the water cooler and meow and meow and meow until someone filled it up. That was one of the things they missed the most when she passed… because they never knew when the water dish was empty and the humans actually had to start paying attention! BOL! Happy Gotcha to your kittie sister :o)

  17. Happy Gotcha Day Abby!
    What wonderful pictures, and that gift looks furry cool 🙂

    Happy Gotcha day Abby


  19. Happy Gotcha Day Abby!! It sounds like you are a wonderful ladycat and we loved learning more about you.

  20. Happy Gotcha Day, Abby! You are “chubby” which means you are loved and cared for!!

  21. Happy Gotcha Day, Miss Abby. You are very bootiful. Mom wishes that we could have a kitteh, but we think of them as intruders who’ve ‘compromised the perimeter’, and we MUST chase them out of our yard. Mom is petting your soft furs from afar!!

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  22. happy happy gotcha day to miss abby!!
    you totally sound like a pretty spiffy kitty lady. in fact, if i had to have a kitty sis, i’d want one just like you! (especially since i could eat all your cheeses since you don’t like them. TEEHEE.) 🙂

    Happy, Happy Gotcha Day, Miss Abby! It is nice to read more about you! We hope you have lots of fun playing with your new scratchy rug and celebrating with your family!

    Luvs and wiggles,

    Jackie, Dillon, and family

  24. Congrats to sister Abby! I think it’s funny how she sits on the toilet, but doesn’t drink the water. I think I would be trained to do something immediately too if our pooches were sitting on the toilet.

  25. Daisy

    If you hafta have a cat, Abby sounds like a good one to have…..except the not playing bit. Happy Gotcha Day, Abby!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  26. Kitty and Coco

    We are not big cat people here (allergies), but Abby seems like a super cool cat. Love that she is easy going, and never drinks toilet water. The soft furs sound nice too. Be glad she doesn’t play wif you. The only cat that has “played” with me gave me a big old scratch on the mouth. Ouch.

    Kitty and Coco

  27. Happy Gotcha Day, Abby! Hope you get lots of catnips to celebrate!

    Sam and Pippen

  28. happy gotcha day, you clever, clever cat! i love your toilet seat trick, and wonder if it makes you officially the smartest kitteh ever?

  30. Happy Gotcha Day to Abby! What a gorgeous, gorgeous kitty she is!

  31. Happy Gotcha Day, Abby!! She looks so happy to have found her forever and ever home! And she’s so smart – sitting on the toilet. Genius!!

    I do have to say… you said she’s normal but… she doesn’t like cheese?! That’s simply crazy!! BOL


  32. Happy Gotcha Day Abby! You sound like a most intriguing cat – I love how you won’t eat anything except dry food/treats. Maybe you could talk Mayzie and your mom into taking some pictures of that sometime! And that’s great how you’ve trained your mom and dad to fill up your water bowl whenever you sit on the toilet seat. You’re obviously a very intelligent cat!

  33. Happy gotcha day! Heehee! maybe she will play with you for some treats?


  34. Pip

    Happy Gotcha Day, Abby! That is most exciting that you have been with your family for 8 years!

    I just love the squeak meow – believe it or not, Rosie does this, too. However, Rosie will eat ANYTHING even veggies! Abby sounds much more sensible.

    Your pal, Pip

  35. Aww! We wish Abby the very happiest of birthdays! May she celebrate many more!


  36. Hello Dear Abby! You are a 8 years old and you are a beauty! I bet you are loving all of these birthday wishes, aren’t you? You are a celebrity and I hope you got lots of dry food and dry treats! I think you are pawsome to sit on the toilet seat until your water bowl is filled! You are so funny!

  37. Mayziegal

    Abby sounds like a purrfect sister (except for the not playing with you part)! Isn’t it odd that she doesn’t like anything but dry kitty food? But, the softest fur ever – I’d like to stroke her! Happy Gotcha Day Abby!

  39. Lorenza

    Happy Gotcha Day, Abby!

    Kisses and hugs

  40. Ahhhh Mayzie, what a sweet post to your Abby! Happy Gotcha Day to her! She sounds like a neat kitty…so funny about how she sits on the toilet bowl until someone fills up her water. Maybe one day she will eventually play with you. 😉
