This is Rudy, my 5 year old Abyssinian. For the first three years of his life, I threatened to take it from him almost daily. He never slept! He was non-stop motion, and somehow he managed to keep this motion going on the floor, mid-level, and high up all at once. No doubt he was a circus performer in a previous life.
Rudy has a very wet mouth, and, oh, does he love to lick me when I am least prepared for a slobber attack! He also loves to shake his head, and spit and flecks of hair fly everywhere. Visitors fall in love with him because, just like a dog, he greets them with great excitement.
Really, I adore him....even when he sleeps on top of my head.
