Way Back When-sday

#1 here. I decided to take a leaf (post?) out of our good friends Forever Foster's blog and steal their title! This is IKKYU, my very first Abyssinian, who was born in Japan and went to the Bridge in late August 2007. The photo was taken on his very first morning at home. He was not yet 8 weeks old and settling in very well. It was back in 1992...


They love us, and leave us, and we love all over again, but we never forget the joy each one brought!

  3. I can understand why you loved Ikkyu so much. He is adorable. Dad has been egging Mom on to look for old slides of their half abby kittens and their abby mama to scan and post - maybe this will inspire her.

  10. Hello, young Ikkyu! Mom told us what you told her about him and we must say that he was a stately mancat.
