Here is "PIPPI" She is a 3 year old Ruddy Abyssinian. I rescued her off the streets of Long Beach, California when she was about 5 months old. She was a mess, severe diarrhea, Giardia,Worms, and bald spots all over, and unfixed(she went into heat 2 weeks after I got her) She has been in our family of now 8 cats and 2 humans for 2 1/2 years. She had alot of health problems which she has overcome. She was diagnosed with Inflamatory Bowel Disease. The Vet said she would have to be on Prednisone for the rest of her life. Well I went on the internet and read about this and now with the help of my Vet and what I found out, "Pippi" is cured!!
I would love to see other Aby's and their stories. :)

Hi libracats! Cougie is my abbyssinian boy and I will post pics as soon as I can. Cougie is wonderful and I would not trade him for anything!

09-27-2001, 01:29 PM
Cougie - cute - hence the abby right? What color is your abby (Ruddy, Silver???) Just love the breed. They usually make a big hit at the local cat show (which I never miss). They truly resemble a Cougar so sleek and shiny - you expect them to blurt out a roar any minute :D :D

Hi Purrly - He is a ruddy and yes looks like a little cougar. We even have a picture of a real cougar so that we can show people. He looks like a Cougar but is a gentle little guy that brings us so much love. People tell us he has the personality of a Maine Coon! Yes, Abys are a gift! Glad you like them too.

09-27-2001, 02:38 PM
Hi Cougie, Cute name. Cant wait to see the pictures. I'm going to try this picture posting 1 more time of "Pippi"
I think this is it.

Oh my goodness Pippi looks so much like Cougie!!!!! :D :D

09-27-2001, 03:31 PM
Dear Libracats,

Pippi is gorgeous! So glad you got the photo-posting to work. Congrats. :D

09-27-2001, 03:49 PM
Libracats - thanks so much for sharing this picture of this absolutely gorgeous cat. Like I've said before - I just love this breed ;) ;)

09-27-2001, 08:59 PM
Thanks everybody. Pippi is a very special cat. And Cougie, have you ever been to an Abyssinian Cat Show? I went to one last year for the first time. I couldn't believe it when I walked in the room there were about 40 Pippi's there. They look So much alike. And when they were judging them, watching their movements they were almost all the same. Does Cougie get along with other cats? Pippi has her moods and will play with the others occasionally but for the most part she dosent want any part of them. She is truely my Husbands Cat.They have special rituals like Head Butt and paw for attention(and her treat,boiled chicken). She is very quiet, loves rubs(even belly rubs) but hates to be picked up.And of course, she is Very intellegent.

I would love to go to an Abyssinian Cat show! Unfortunately, my area only gets one cat show a year and its a general so you have all breeds :( :) It is still fun to watch! I would love to see a whole room of Pippis and Cougies.

Cougie gets along with Max and Fester pretty well. He will play with them but he is also independent too. He sometimes will not sleep with us and the others on his cat bed, rather he will sleep in some other room of the house. He is very affectionate and loves to be held. You will put him on your chest and He will give you a head bump and purr loudly! He also misses us when we are gone and have to have a cat sitter at the house. One time we came home from a vacation and went back out to get the bags and the sitter told us he walked around yowling when we were outside. And he hardly ever meows or yowls. We love him dearly!

libracats, Pippi is absolutely gorgeous!!! **hugs** to you for rescuing pippi from the streets.

We leave town for some fall leaf peeping (gorgeous aspen color around Ouray in our San Juan Mountains) and I return to discover we have a new Abyaddict! Welcome, Libracats and your splendid Pippi!! You may have cost me my marriage, since I logged on those webshots and was there for hours. All the beautiful abys...and other splendid cats.

Here is a Breed Profile on the Abyssiniani-love-cats.com (http://www.i-love-cats.com/Breeds/abyssinian.htm)
I would love to see pics of your Aby babies!

10-03-2001, 09:55 PM
Hi luvdemabys, What a great sign in. I noticed that one of your Abys is named Pip, real close to my Pippi! Do you have photos of them? I'd love to see them. :)
Pictures! More Aby pictures please :D

Pippi is gorgeous!! What a beauty. She does look like a cougar!! I just love her eyes. Thanks for sharing her with us, and for giving her such a wonderful, loving home :)

10-07-2001, 06:29 PM
Aren't abyssinians sweeties? My two get along well with each other but maybe it's because they're sisters. One of them, Pounce, is around us all the time (she's sleeping on the comp monitor right now!) and she loves to cuddle, kneed us and give head butts. The other, Cairo, is a food addict and loves to eat weird things like broccoli.

Here's a picture of my two, Pounce is licking Cairo.


By the way it's wonderful that you rescued Pippi :)

Oh, Trisnic, what a gorgeous pair! I gotta grit my teeth and figure out how to post pictures. (p.s. Trisnic, what the heck is an anole?)

Trisnic, Cairo and Pounce are beauties!!!
Are they still kittens? They look young. What a great photo.Pippi also does Head Butt with my Husband. And I do catch her licking one the cats,or playing with them, every so often. ;)

I am trying to show everyone a picture of one of my cats. I don't know if it will work.

11-10-2001, 05:10 PM

I shall try again! This is my male Aby named Graemer aka Grammy Crackers...

11-11-2001, 09:27 AM
Here we go again.

I am again, trying to post a picture of my male kitty!

11-11-2001, 09:39 AM
Thanks so much for the help, Spencer!

Here is another picture....the darker kitty is Graemer, the male and the lighter kitty is Miley, his sister. They will be one year old tomorrow, Nov. 12th!

And then this is a picture of the two, as kittens, before I brought them home, weeks later. Miley is on the top, left, hugging her brother Grammy Crackers....their sister who lives in NYC is the kitty on the far right. The other kittens were from another litter.

Hey you made it :D and what a bunch of cute kitties there are! So adorable!!!

Doesn't Graemer have the longest tail?
This photo is from the famous and oh so
loved, porch. The cats spent the summer
on the porch and still play on it even
though it is cold out. I installed a
window/door and they just love it. And
I love my kitties, as you may have guessed
by now.


11-11-2001, 08:01 PM
Beautiful Kitties.

11-12-2001, 11:18 AM
These abbies are exquisite!!! I saw alot of beautiful ones at the Cat Show yesterday. A beautiful Somalie got top honors. This was a Ruddy Somalie - looked alot like the abbie except for the bushy tail :)

11-12-2001, 05:19 PM
Thanks for the compliments! They are not only nice looking, but they have wonderful personalities!

11-12-2001, 07:01 PM
Wow! What beauties they are! So regal looking. I just love the eyes!!

11-13-2001, 09:52 AM
I am testing my profile right now...


11-13-2001, 09:55 AM
one more test

11-13-2001, 06:11 PM
Hey sasvermont, Glad you were able to get the pics up. Graemer and Miley are gorgeous!! I'm hoping to get more of Pippi up soon. I'm posting a photo question on General. If you or anyone here can be of any help I would appreciate it. Thanks, Libracats

11-13-2001, 07:40 PM
I just have to show you guys
this photo too. I think you
can appreciate how wonderful
Abys can be to have around
and love. This is a photo of
Graemer aka Grammy Crackers.
He is quite the handsome fellow.

Great pictures of beautiful Abys! Well, this is my Abyssinian, Honey Boy. His registered name is Glenmaulin Sundust but to me he's my Honey. His colour is Sorrel Silver (fawn). He's now 4 but this picture was when he was a few months old. He's just gorgeous - very talkative, very needy of cuddles and attention and loves his food. You can e-mail Honey Boy at [email protected] :cool:

Kumbulu, all your babies are beautiful! I love Honey Boy, being a fan of Abys myself!

11-14-2001, 08:22 PM
Kambulu, what cute kitties. Where is Popcorn? I suspect it is tucked away underneath the others! What great pictures!

11-14-2001, 08:46 PM
So precious!

11-15-2001, 10:37 AM
LOL Popcorn is at the back, in-between the two big boys. She's a tortie and kind-of blends into the background. Thanks for all your comments about my beautiful babies. Couln't resist just putting one more pic of Honey Boy! He's indulging in one of his most favourite activities. :p

Honey Boy is absolutely adorable!

I sure love "them abys!" What a wonderful breed of cat. Mine are mixed but they have enough of the Aby traits in them to make me desirious of a pure-bred. Maybe some day......!
