I had to look them up .. I thought I knew what they looked like but had never seen one in person.
They are gorgeous. They are slinky, long and elegant and gorgeous ..
I was not that excited about going to see the kitten, I had no hope of it happening .. so I stayed home and he went to see the kitten.
I was busy doing something when he came home, something around the house .. and I heard him walk down the hall ..... then I heard this sound ... a small bell sound .. he was carrying a little toy with a bell in it ... and behind him came this tiny Ruddy Abyssinian kitten ... big ears, big eyes, and gorgeous.
We named him Sebastian.
He lived for a long time ... not long enough, they never live long enough .. but he was about 12-13 when he died .. I still miss him sometimes ..
Funny .. the older you get, you go back through memories of other times, happy times, exciting times, love and loss and it is all mixed up in a blend of smiles and tears and wishing you were there again, or that they were here again or that you could do it all over again ..
Minette would have been crazy in love with Sebastian :)
