FEATURED PET: ABBY

Would you wait three weeks for the love of your life? That’s all it would take for Abby to figure out that you’re her best friend in the world.

Abby came to the shelter back in March with her sister Sweetums. Sweetums was pregnant and went into kitten foster while Abby was shy and unsure about humans and went to socialization foster. She’s now thriving in a hectic home with people, kittens, dogs, turtles, snakes, fish, and other cats–including her sister!

Abby loves to be pet. If any part of your body gets near her she will rub against you like there is no tomorrow. You might get stuck petting Abby forever as she’s more likely to let you know she’s upset that you stopped petting her than anything else. She also loves to sit beside her people and lean against them, though she’s not a full-fledged lap cat just yet. She truly loves being around people, even though she’s so shy at first. Abby gets along well with both dogs and cats, provided they are low key and don’t chase her around.

Abby‘s special circumstances mean that she will be a little bit… shall we say… upset for the first two or three weeks in her new home. She’s still desperate to be pet in new situations, but she’s also unsure of her surroundings and prefers to be pet with a towel-covered stick. Once she realizes the same people and animals will regularly be around (and won’t eat her), she’ll all of a sudden decide to explore her new home and your lap! What’s two or three weeks of shyness when you’ll have such a great cat for the rest of her life?


If you’re interested in a very sweet cat, or maybe two very sweet cats, Abby is currently being fostered with her sister Sweetums. They’re no longer bonded, but they do get along well together! If you’d like to meet sweet Abby or her conversational sister Sweetums, email their foster mom Dana at burbank.monster.kitties@gmail.com and she’ll help find a time that works for everyone.
