This is (or rather, was) the real "abbietabbie".
Just a "moggy" from the pet shop but she took over our lives for sixteen years and ruled the house with a rod of iron! We had to have her put to sleep just over two years ago as she had an inoperable tumour ..... we still miss her.
This is my favourite picture of her .... pre-digital and dirty (the picture that is, not her!) ..... it shows her at six weeks old just after we'd got her. A real "chocolate-box kitten", she remained very beautiful .... and boy ! .... did she know it ! ;o))
