OUR ABY OF THE MONTH
I have a certain - je ne sais pas - grace about me, elegant and flowing and beautiful. I am a sensitive woman and do not like to have other felines around me, I don't care if they are abyssinians like me. In my world I AM THE ONLY ONE.
My early life was one of stress - from knowing there were other cats outside, then a move, then to add insult to insult, dogs were added to the family. As if that weren't enough, I heard there was a tiny human on the way.
How much more can a woman take, I ask?????? And at only 5 years.
Well, as you humans that know us abys can imagine - the stress led to small little physical issues that ended up with my delicate intestinal system being compromised.
So now I have clostridium (it's too complicated for me to tell you, you are the human and can use your fingers to look it up). My foster mom tells me it is temporary and will go away eventually, as long as I take my medicine of Tylosin once a day, which she tells me I won't have to have forever. I love that yummy Fancy something in that pate: chicken, beef, liver and combinations of them. Oh yes, I forgot, she sprinkles something in it - starts with a B, oh yes, Benefiber.
I am a simple spirit, I do my thing and you do your thing and somehow we meet in the middle.

Hello everybody, we are ready for our debut.....we are Violet and Dash or Dash and Violet. There is no doubt we are a stunning brother/sister team and we are raring to go. We will enter your home and your hearts with love, purrs and all things wonderful. At about one year old, we just want to have fun and fun and.........more fun.
At first you will think us identical but that is not true. We have subtle and not so subtle difference so you will always be able to tell us apart. We are silver aby mix kitties that will provide you with lots of entertainment and we hope you will provide us with the same.
Those nice people at that shelter thought we were so wonderful too and kept us there until these nice people at SCAR could get us.
We just had a vet check up and a test for FELV........which came back positive. But we aren't concerned, we just want to have fun! However, we do think you should do your research about it before jumping into our relationship. We have to be the only animal energies in your house because of it. We have to live a stress free life because of it....and good quality food because of it.
Get those fingers working and email ....Marla

I am very young so my vocabulary is small, just like me. Are you looking for a soft spoken, gentle girl?
Yes, everyone tells me that I am a beautiful aby mix kitten and at 6 months I am still learning lots of things.
My mother was living outside and still has not been caught. One of the boys she was playing with was my daddy.
My sister Little P and I share the same mother, but I don't quite know why she has a different daddy.
I would like to go to my new home with her, I really need another cat as companion.
If you are interested in me or both of us, we think you should get in touch with Marla

Do you like to sing? I do! And I like to hear you sing my name. P E N N Y P E N N Y.
It has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
Here I am, a 2 yr young ruddy very smart girl looking for a new home. Not just any home - a home with no other cats please. If you have a nice mellow small dog I can play with, all the better. If the woman of the house is home alot, even better yet. I am used to women. I do like my affection time, in addition to playtime. You do remember I said I was only 2 yrs old....and active!
I am sure you want to know what a beautiful young girl is doing here. I will keep the story short because I truly have moved on and don't want to dwell in the past. I was abandoned and left to fend for myself for many months outside until a good female human realized my situation and started to befriend me. It took time but I soon trusted the human. When it was obvious to the human that I would have nothing to do with the two other felines in the house, sadly we had to part .
Ok, that's enough. Now let's focus on you getting in touch with Marla
Adoption in the Portland OR area only please.
Hello there, Fiona here. I am the most beautiful abyssinian here - yes you are correct, I have a beautiful fawn coloring.
I am ony five years young and love to flit around the place. I will let you hold me, kiss me, give me praise - and in return I will purr and smile. I do not have my front claws but we won't go into that.
I don't think much about other cats - only that they are meaningless to me. If they get in my face I may chase them off, which I think is kind of fun! I have been around a small, gentle dog and sometimes I may go up to him, but really, what do I need to do with a dog?
I LOVE to eat! Unfortunately my diet is limited to beef or lamb and so far I don't think much of lamb. My foster mom keeps saying that it took awhile to find a meal that would suit my allergies and she has only found three kinds. You see, I am also allergic to wheat, rice, egg, sweet potato, and lots of other things that go into most meals. Lucky for me everyone has been very caring about my well being. Oh yes, I am also allergic to other things in the environment, including feather mixes.
What happens if I come across the wrong thing - well, I lose my fur and my ears turn bright red and I get lots of spots on me. Itchy, Itchy, Itchy.
So, here I am waiting for you - since I am so special I think you would have to be special too!
Be that special one and get in touch with Marla

OK, I admit it....I am a ham, I love to have my picture taken. At about 5 yrs old, I just want to roll around and get affection.
I'm sweet, loving beautiful - what more can you ask for? You are right, I am not a pure aby, but that's what makes me so special!
I am looking for someone to appreciate me for who I am, and that is the most wonderful cat you will ever meet!
My temporary digs have lots of other kitties and one token little dog. I get along with all of them, some more than others.
Oh yes, I do have diabetes, but so far I am not getting those shots, I am stable on food. If you are familiar with this thing I have that would be a plus for both of us!
So what do you say? Am I yours? If so, then contact Marla

No, you are not seeing double, there are two of us. We think alike most of the time, play together, eat together....well you get the picture.
Since I'm the mama, I will do the talking. I am Tiny (that's my name), and about 10-11 yrs ago I had my daughter Kaykee. Well, actually I had three daughters, but my other daughters are living in their furrever homes now. We were a happy family, my husband, daughters and I, but then our human became ill and we found ourselves in our current temporary home. My husband is living in his furrever home now also so it is just Kaykee and myself.
I know, I know, you are saying we are not pure abyssinians. I can't say, we live in the moment and don't remember those minute details. I can tell you that you won't regret letting us into your home and heart for we are very affectionate, laid back and friendly cats.
If you are interested in letting us into YOUR home, contact Marla

STOP right here because I am your man, a beautiful ruddy 7-8 yr old boy that will fill your life with joy. We could have fun for hours just playing, you running and me chasing. I don't stay focused for long so please have lots of toys for us to play with together.

JACK AND CINDER
Job search: seeking employment as office assistants: experience in batting pencils, shuffling paper, organizing anything with rings.
Salary requirements: Food, love, play
Ready to work NOW
I am the mighty Jack, or at least I think I am! However, I am just a pussycat waiting to purr and give you love. My red coat blends well with my girlfriend Cinder and we have lots of fun playing together. Heck, we have fun playing with anyone!
Cinder is a my beautiful girlfriend and she is just too busy playing to talk to you right now. She is very clever and can turn on that round thing that the red light comes out of. Yessirree she can turn it on all by itself and likes to do it at 5am in the morning. Well, humans are still sleeping and we are ready to start our day.
I imagine any human that wants us to live with us would have to be prepared for all the mischief we might get into, like opening cabinets, doors, climbing bookcases, you name it we will do it, hehe!
We are young (3 yrs) and smart and playful and affectionate and just want to have fun.
Want to see us in action?
If you want to have fun playing with us then get in touch with .....Marla

Let me introduce myself, my name is Katalina. Yes it is an unusal name, but it is a special name and I chose it! I am almost 7 yrs and have a beautiful ruddy coat. I am not fussy with my food, however I do enjoy the wet pate type of food over that crumble stuff that is put in my bowl.
Please know that I do not tolerate other cats - no exceptions! There is a small dog here where I am and we have no issue with each other. This small dog is very calm and quiet and leaves me alone so if you have a dog like that, I would be ok.
I am one of the most intelligent felines you will ever meet so my new human must respect me for my intelligence, my quiet sense of humor, my knowing of all things in the universe. I am not just another pretty face and would not appreciate someone that thinks of me that way. Yes, I do like affection and I do make biscuits in the air. Yes, I will sit on your shoulder. Yes, I will sit by your side while you stare at that screen that moves. But I also like my alone time which I assume my new human would like also.
If you have seen into my soul and want to know more, then you can contact my friend, Marla

You would be correct if you think I am the most adorable abyssinian you have EVER seen. It was very disturbing to find myself kicked out of my home when my human had to move. Yes, I do realize the human was older, but there had to be a better way of handling the entire situation.
At least these nice people at S.C.A.R. recognized me and quickly took me away from that noisy, smelly place filled with cages.
Now I am temporarily sharing a room with others that are like me, but not like me. I am quietly tolerating them, but it is really beneath me to have to do so. I am not used to living like this and therefore, I think I need to find a new home quickly. I had never been with dogs before, but have now realized I do not choose to live with them. My ideal situation would be with a quiet human that lives a nice quiet life......yes, that is what this 8 yr beauty would like.
Any interested humans may get in touch with my agent ....Marla

I am better than any cat here for I am royalty. I am used to having my way and being pampered. I need my beauty treatment and that means a brushing of my beautiful ruddy Somali coat every day. Well not really because my coat is in good condition and I eat premium quality food which keeps it that way!
I usually don't tell my age, it just is not done, however.....I will let you know that I am about ten. You would think I was five, which is what I feel like! I feel so young and it shows when I play with that stick with the mouse on the end.....it is my favorite thing! I jump up in the air and pounce on it.
Oh yes, because I am royalty I don't mingle with the underling cats. I have learned to tolerate the underlings though and they know that I am royalty. That being meowed......I could be enticed to live with you if you have a small calm dog.....or a calm kitty that will understand that I am boss.
You will be the one missing out if you don't sweep me off my feet. Intrigued? Then contact Marla

My official name is Makani but I kind of like Mak, it rhymes with knack, like I have a knack of being affectionate.
I am at my prime age of 12yrs and I find myself needing a new home. Life was good, I was living with my human mom on a boat, traveling and just having a good time.......then she got sick.....real sick. Before I was born, she was everyone's hero because she helped lots of people when she responded to the tragedy at the World Trade Center. Everyone thinks this is why she got sick.....and then she left me. Thank goodness my human grandma took me in because I don't know what would have happened.
Then I got sick, something called diabetes which meant I had this thing poking me every day. But then I got better and didn't need to be poked.
Then she got sick and couldn't take care of me any longer. Now I am with these nice people who are taking care of me, but I am being poked with that thing every day again because.........well it was just so stressful for me. My foster mom is really nice and helping me the best she can.
If there is someone out there that knows about diabetes and wants to take me in, I am open to that. There's lots of life left in me and my human mom always wanted to live life to the fullest and I agree with that.
I'm waiting so contact Marla

Hello, I am the mighty female warrior, Zuri! I am young and full of energy and if I don't get my energy drained................well, the humans will not be happy.
I am always on the move, ok, sometimes I do nap. Oh yes, I do love to eat and once I get to know you I will groom your hair and give kisses.
My human needs to have lots of aby experience with different aby personalities. Yes, I am a force to be reckoned with. I do not care if I share a home with a calm dog, but other felines are not my cup of tea.
If you think you can handle me, then get in touch with Marla.
