It's been a while since I posted some pictures - have taken a few of her over the past few days -- she is so much bigger now!

I popped out to the kitchen to get a drink, and on my return was greeted with this. No prizes for guessing which is my favourite chair!



This next one was taken 4 weeks ago. Cats find some very strange and unusual positions to sleep in. This does not look very comfortable to me:



And a few minutes later I was lucky enough to catch this one - she had started kicking with her back leg whilst asleep, and I guess had woken herself up. Not something it looks like she was expecting!



And this pair was taken just now of her lying out on the sofa next to my chair:

Abigail is beautiful - love the white on her chest and paws!

How fitting that the first and last pic are of her sitting regally in your chair! :D

She is almost 10 months old, and just tips the scales at 4kg (8.8lbs).

I think she is beautiful - but I am biased of course =)

The pictures dont capture it, but she really does have a very expressive face.

Probably about half as much again! Her parents were both quite big too.

I can still feel her ribs when stroke her sides, so I dont think she is overfed. From between her ears to the base of her spine where her tail starts, she is a little over 51cm (a little bit less than 20")

She is a Norwegian Forest Cat, and they grow big - maybe not quite Maine Coon size, but not far off.

She wont be fully grown until she is 5 years old or so.

She is such a lady - she doesnt often lie on her back in such an undignified way - was glad I had my phone to hand to quickly take a snapshot!



Turns out she has quite a lot of white fur - but its all on her underside!

She is very sweet yes. Very friendly. She shows a lot of typical NFC characteristics. She absolutely must be in the same room as me (unless she is out in the garden).

She comes up to me every hour or so, and chirps at me until I scratch her head/ears/chin.

She's always walking around with her tail up in the air, and she likes to just brush past people - and in this warm weather whilst wearing shorts, that fluffy tail is very ticklish!

Miss Abigail is absolutely adorable! Now I want a NFC to add to my collection of kitties! What an amazing look she has!

She runs around like a lunatic from time to time, thats about as wild as she gets.

She gets it into her head that she absolutely must know what is going on in the garden *and* outside the front of the house at the same time. So she will run from one end of the room to the other over and over and over, spending a few seconds looking out the window at each end, before running back to check the other end.
