by Toria from Sparkle Abbey's Downton Tabby
Sparkle Abbey's latest book, Downton Tabby. I get a lot of comments about my unusual ears, even here in Southern California, where you'd think people would be used to them. Especially since some of my relatives are in the spotlight because they make their homes with celebrities. A couple of my cousins, Olivia and Meredith, show up frequently in magazines because they live with a singer. A very talented singer, I'm told.
Because of our ears some people call us as “pixies,” “owls,” or “teddy bears” rather than Scottish Fold cats. We’re a relatively new breed compared to some others and ear thing is a family trait. You see, in 1961 William Ross, a shepherd, spotted the first known Scottish Fold cat at a farm near Coupar Angus in the Tayside Region of Scotland. Ross asked the owners if he could have one of the kittens (my ancestor Susie) and well, the rest is history.
I live here in Laguna Beach with a really nice man, Graham Cash, who mostly works on his computer. He takes really good care of me. He does, really. He even named me for Queen Victoria, I heard him explaining to Caro, the animal lady, why but I lost interest in the story once she started scratching my head.
Anyway, back to my adoptive human dad. He generally dotes on me, but he recently left me with Caro, who I like very much. But he didn't come back for me and so she took me home, but now I'm told I can't stay there because Cash is missing. So, I'm having to spend the night at Caro's house. Oh, my. She has a dog and two cats there already.
I'm just not sure how this is going to work out...
What do you think? Do you have more than one furry family member at your home?
