So a few photos of Abby and the hail I wrote about
a few posts ago! I'm selling my camera (or trying) so I took a few photos after the hailstorm - but don't tell a soul! Ssssh! :)

Explanation of Abby:
1. a box
2. full of 'snap' plastic
3. 'nuff said

Under the cut....





First up, she catches me taking the photo

I zoom in for 2nd photo since she's being so nice about it....

Now her 'I'm searching for prey' look - or, as some people say, "God, that's one feral-looking cat!"

Now the hail - and sure, everyone's seen hail, but come on, in Southern California? In Orange County???? Not so much.

hail 2012

Sweet kitty. *pets gently*
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 23rd, 2012 11:15 pm (UTC) (Link)

She just rolled over for you!

But watch it...her "I love a good tummy scratch with the best of 'em" soon turns into, "Oh, fingers, YUMMY!" *G*

Awwww...she's a beauty. :) Thanks for sharing.

*hugs*

She is my baby, and it looks as though,

from your icon, that we have similar baby's? Torties (as in tortoishell *G*)?

Re: She is my baby, and it looks as though,

We do, and she is! :) I think that torties are beautiful, beautiful cats. Garnet is my sweet, baby girl - I love her to pieces.

OMG! She's not only gorgeous, but you can get yours to wear a collar!!! I can't. *whines pitifully*

Re: She is my baby, and it looks as though,

LOL...well, she wasn't very happy about it in the beginning, let me tell you. We had many, many discussions about it (that mostly involved her squirming out of the collar and me trying to catch her and get it back on her!), and she finally saw it my way. Sort of. She'll still slip it if she has the opportunity, but I was pretty determined.

I wouldn't have worried about it much if she just stayed in our house year round, but we had started RVing, and I knew that she couldn't go with us without a collar that held identifying information and our phone and address in case she - god forbid - ever got lost. Yeah. It's never actually happened, but I love her too much to let her go without. The good news is that she took to RVing like a pro. Hee!

Oops, that pic was a little bigger than I thought it would be, but you can see what a pretty girl she is. :D

beyond cute!!
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 23rd, 2012 11:17 pm (UTC) (Link)

She can be :)

This was really lucky because when she sees my camera, she usually runs for cover. :) Which is odd - her being the Queen and all. Maybe she has a bit of Garbo in her. :)

great pictures!

And she has grown into an absolute beauty.
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 23rd, 2012 11:17 pm (UTC) (Link)

She has, and I suspect

she knows it. Darn it.

Now that's one handsome cat!
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 23rd, 2012 11:17 pm (UTC) (Link)

Isn't she?

And I can brag since I had nothing to do with her looks! LOL!
t_verano From: t_verano Date: September 23rd, 2012 06:15 am (UTC) (Link)
She's totally gorgeous. Which I would think even if she didn't look very, very, very much like my Serious. I can't really stop looking at the pictures, actually; I love the expressiveness of her face (and why have I no good pictures of my girl? I need some)...

Now her 'I'm searching for prey' look - or, as some people say, "God, that's one feral-looking cat!"

Sometimes Serious looks at me with such intensity -- okay, who are we kidding, ferocity -- (usually when she knows I'm getting ready to leave the house for the day) that I try to stay across the room from her. She was supposed to be "Cereus" as in "Night-Blooming", but the way she can eviscerate me with her eyes morphed her name into Serious within a week after she came to live with me.

*nods with excitement!*

I KNOW! It's crazy, isn't it? With my Lucy (dog) looked at me if she was mad or upset, I got the "puppy dog" look, but cats? OH MAN WATCH OUT!! LOL! I'd love to see Serious! Do we both have torty's???
t_verano From: t_verano Date: September 24th, 2012 12:38 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: *nods with excitement!*

We both have torties! Serious could be Abby's twin almost -- same beautiful coloring, shape of face, everything. She's the third cat I've had in my life, and she's by far the most independent-minded and Machiavellian (and insanely inventive). Never a dull moment (sometimes it feels like never a safe one, either :-)).

She's absolutely gorgeous - and brilliant you managed to get such good photos - cats rarely allow such liberties *g*

alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 23rd, 2012 11:18 pm (UTC) (Link)

THANK YOU! That's exactly the problem!

Unless, apparently, they know they're going to appear on YouTube! LOL!

She's so beautiful!
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 23rd, 2012 11:19 pm (UTC) (Link)

Sssh, we mustn't say that too loud...

she reads my journal! :)

How's life, btw? Haven't talked in awhile, babe. :(

She has such gorgeous green eyes!

Hail in Orange County, California, is definitely picture worthy.
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 24th, 2012 04:11 am (UTC) (Link)

Isn't it?

Snow was easier to believe a few years ago when I lived 3 miles away, than hail here, now. *shakes head in disbelief*

One thing you can say about all cats - they have eyes to die for. :)

Abby is absolutely gorgeous! Fantastic photos. :-) I used to have a tortie, though she was more orange than black, and she was quite the character. I bet Abby is, too. ::g::
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 25th, 2012 06:02 am (UTC) (Link)

Oh, yeah, Abby

has all the 'tortitude' she's supposed to have and more. :)
