But we call her the evil one. She started out as my daughter's cat, but now she is mine. I would love to NOT have 4 cats, and I would love to find a home better suited to Abby. But it would be very difficult.
We don't know what happened to Abby, only that she was abandoned. She will bite you as soon as look at you, especially if you come at her with your hand outstretched. But she will come and sit on my lap and grab some of my shirt or pants with her mouth and do her kneading with her paws, and sometimes she will lay down and go to sleep on my lap. She wants love, but it has to be on her terms.
Abby would probably be better in a house with no other cats, and the person who adopted her would have to be a cat whisperer. I wouldn't give her up to anyone less than that because at least here - I know how she is treated. A lot of people don't take kindly to a cat that bites.
So I make it my mission to become (at least) the one person she doesn't bite, the one person she isn't afraid of or doesn't get spooked by.
But I tell you what - it's slo-o-o-w-w going! We've had her for .. over 5 years now, at least. Pretty sure she's not going anywhere!
