What makes Abbe so mean?
Abbe is a demoness (she even wears a little pewter tag that reads, “Demon Kitty”), but she has a valid excuse. She is a rescue cat, who was rescued from a very abusive situation. She was placed in three different foster homes, and returned because she was so vicious that the foster care staff couldn’t do a thing with her. The staff was at wit’s end but really really wanted to give her every extra chance they could, since they felt so sorry for her after all she’d been through. Still, she was within a few days of being put to sleep when my housemate saw her in Petco, was told her story, and took pity on her. Not that Abbe wants anybody’s stinkin’ pity. It took him a long time to win her over, but he is even more stubborn than she is. She made us all work very hard to earn positions on her household staff.
She is The Queen, and never lets anyone forget it. She rules all human and animal family members with an iron paw.
