This was taken before our kitchen remodel.
This is a time warp from the early 1980's.
But, Abby always loved getting into the bottom cabinets.
She would sit in front of the cabinet and look at me.
If I didn't act fast enough she would give me a big meow.
Let me in there Mom, NOW!
I use to kid her and tell her to go check out for aliens.
She would dutifully go into the cabinets and what she would do was go to the corner
and scratch. She would get up on her back paws and scratch with her front two.
All of these were taken on the same day.

I sure do miss my little kitchen helper.
I love you Abby
to the MOON
again, and again, and again.
A SURPRISE VISIT
Sunday while watching the late afternoon football game I was sitting on the couch. I had a cup of coffee that was basically empty sitting beside me and all of a sudden I felt the pounce of a jump up onto the sofa's arm and onto the back. I thought Ping had jumped up. So I swiveled and looked and all that was there was a sleeping Gracie, except my cup had turned over and DaddyCAT saw/heard it too. There was nothing there. Gracie had not moved she was curled up sound asleep but it happened. I have to believe it was Abby. I can think of no other explanation. Her "spot" was up on the back of sofa. We had only gotten that sofa within the past two years and she loved the extra cushy top part. I had been looking at photos of her yesterday from December of last year in that exact spot. I know it happened and I have to conclude there is only one animal that would have done that. TO think it had been so long since she had made her presence known to me and out of the blue this. What a gift.
