What makes Abbey so mean?
We call her our nasty New Yorker kitty. I picked her up at a local street fair in Upstate New York eight years ago. She was the last kitten in a cardboard box. No one wanted her, so I carried her home. She was tiny, but that didn’t keep her from beating up my Mom’s three other cats when I got her there.
She was infested with fleas, worms, and the worst case of ear mites our vet had ever seen! Anyway, she is not to be messed with. She will come and love you on her terms, but if you pet her too long, she will swat or bite you! She really hates to be touched at all, and just forget about picking her up! She’s a very verbal meankitty, and has lots of ways of telling people to piss off.
Abbey particularly hates other cats. She TOLERATES our two male kitties because they are bigger than she is. If they come too close, WHAM! she smacks them! We also have two Great Pyrenees dogs who each weigh about 90 pounds. She hates them too. If they come too close when they walk by, she sinks her teeth into their fur with a vengeance.
