She's Just Too Smucking Cute!!
(I've started Lisey's Story, by Stephen King - so Smucking is a new word to add to my vocabulary. I like it - sounds like Smuckers Jam, so it's a SWEET swear!!)
I find it really hard to get good pictures of my cats. It's like their energy and essence just can't be captured on film or in pixels.
But these are close - Abby is too hyper usually, so I try to catch her when she is sleeping.
Abby has the BEST tummy. It's firm, like a barrel - and covered in white curly fur. She has no shame - readily rolls over for long tummy rubbing sessions. For cats, she's very easy going about that - they usually don't like it. But I have had her since she was 7 weeks old, and right from the beginning, I made a point of it. That way, she is much more cooperative at the vet - they often have to find ways to get her to stop purring during exams. But that is much easier to deal with than a cat who wants to eat your hand off at the wrist!
