Happy Birthday Abigail
Happy Fourth of July (an hour and a half early here)!
Because we never know exactly when the cat's birthdays are we designate a day. Teddy's is March first, same as DH's Grandma, Margi is on DH's birthday (01/23) and July 4 is Abigail's.
She isn't a big fan of having her picture taken. Usually she acts like the camera is stealing her soul. This year she is 10, just 4 months younger than her brother Teddy. We know they have the same mom but we're pretty sure they have the same dad too. Their mom was a skinny, short-haired torty and they both have longer hair. They even look quite a bit alike and have the same longish hair and furry feet. Of course Abby is about half Teddy's size. She is pretty needy and we joke that she has "abandonment issues". We were not planning on bringing her when we moved (she wasn't our cat) but no one else was feeding her so we felt responsible for her. Seven years later she's still hanging around. She's the only one of the three that still has her front claws and she goes out freely although she sticks pretty close to the patio. She's not the character that Teddy and Margi are but she's got her own charm.
Tomorrow, more fiber related news (hint: beginning spinning 1.5 is a go)
Happy 4th! Hope you have good fireworks!
