I was born in the wild. my mom once was able to catch me but I was too fast and got away from her. then my fur mom thought I should stay while she took my sibblings down the row to another house. So my mom fed me for a month before they borrowed a safe trap to catch me in. Then I stayed inside for a long time... I didn't know how to play or even purr. Well I would purr when my brother Tuxi snuggled with me, but not for mom and dad. I did finally purr for them almost a year and a half later. Now you can't stop me! I have always been a bit jumpy, I blame living in the wild. But mom and dad noticed I was getting scared too easily and bumbing into things. They took me to the vet and I found out that I have a rare degenerative eye disease and am going blind. Only Abyssinian cats can get this usually, and there is no cure. I get along alright, my mom and dad make sure my surroundings don't change a lot and they talk to me and always come when I call them. I have different meows for what I want and they are learning them. My little sister Piper was missing her fur mom when she came to live with us, so i let her pretend that I was mom. It gave us a special bond I think.
Saddly Cinni passed away in April of 2014. The last could years of his life had been hard on him, He was missing for 5 weeks, presumed dead, when showed up in the yard at a mere 5 pounds. He recovered from nearly starving to death and regained lost weight, but the ordeal did a number on his heart and he passed nearly 2 years later, where he joined my husband, his dog sister Quarky and his cat sister Piper.
