HISTORY:   Abby was trapped at the end of the CFC driveway where she had been living with a colony of cats.

PBS fans who love Downton Abbey just might adore a certain Downtown Abbey, ME!  Well, in the interest of accuracy I’m not a downtown girl but I did come from a country version of life on the mean streets.  I have adapted to the good life at the sanctuary far faster than anyone expected but I am still gently bashful and will be shy when first we meet.  My fur is impossibly soft and I’m cute as a bug from my sweet pink nose to my glossy black tail.  If you’re patient with me I’ll reward you with tiny little kisses, enthusiastic head bumps, and kneading paws; I might even break out into my joyous Abby dance or flop before you hoping for even more pets and caresses down my back.  I’m petite and demure, loving all fellow creatures both feline and human.  If you have room in your heart for a nattily dressed, warmhearted little girl who has all the makings of a devout and loyal lifelong companion, I’d love to meet you and get our friendship started.

Spring 2024 Update: Described as a “sweet, older gal,” by best friend Scott,  I’m pleased to say I am doing well and happy that you are tuned into me!  Especially with the warmer temps,  more and more you will find me in one of the pretty turquoise chairs out on the catio.  I find the chair and ever changing outside scenery mighty relaxing and enjoy this area very much.  Typically you’ll find other kitties sitting near me but I am not one to have any favorite or best friends right now so they are all equally welcome to simply hang and chill with me.  Even Birdie who really does not care for any of us cats in “his” room is ok with me and does not “yell” at me!  LOL.   With my health intact and no emerging medical concerns,  I’m on track to enjoy the warm, lazy summer as it kicks into high gear.  ABBY 

Fall 2023 Update: Approaching 11 yrs of age, our pretty black and white lady Abby is showing some signs of her age as she slows down and her coat of fur gets a bit more wiry in its texture. Like any self respecting kitty approaching senior status, it’s important to find that perfect perch. To that end, a volunteer fondly referred to Abby as The Queen of the Adirondack Chair as she snoozed away the summer days in this preferred location on her catio. Abby continues to coexist with the others in her room not really having any best friends and likewise not really having any enemies. She just goes with the cat flow! Outside of her natural settling into older age, Abby is healthy and happy and we’ll look forward to seeing her settling in her pillow laden chair and enjoying the fall color show and cooler temps. You go girl.
