Ms. Butters (aka Bella, aka BPIS Ch Bullmarket Absolut Harvest Moon) has two weeks to go in her pregnancy, and she already looks like she’s swallowed a watermelon.
At this rate, she’s going to outstrip her mom, Penelope, in the “biggest pregnant Frenchie belly” contest.
More after the cut, including updates about blog changes.
Dad of this litter is AKC/JKC Ch Bullmarket Versace, from semen frozen over a dozen years ago. The wonders of modern technology….
By the way, did you notice the cat in the background of that photo? That’s one of Paula’s Abyssinians – I can’t recall her name, but she lost one of her eyes as a very young kitten. You’d think that would make her skittish of the dogs, but not s0. Instead, she absolutely loves the dogs, each and every one of them. She never misses a chance to rub up against them and give them head butts.
Paula thinks that it’s because she believes she actually is a dog. I think it’s just that she’s a cat who is a dog lover, a trait I’ve noticed in quite a few Abys. They really do seem to be good cats for people who already have dogs in the house.
Here’s a pic of her giving Butters some head rubs. Butters seems to love her right back, which isn’t surprising, since Butters loves everyone.
You might have noticed that the blog has been incredibly slow to load lately. I have no idea what’s going on – Powweb, my hosting company is being just as remarkably unsupportive as they always are. So, I’m going two things – I’m going back to a bare bones, no fuss blog layout, which will hopefully speed loading, and I’m once again going to work on migrating the blog over to a new host.
Let me know if the stripped down version of the blog seems any faster to you, and wish me luck with the migration. Lesson to others: make really, really sure that you’re with a webhost you can stand for the long haul if you plan to run a high traffic blog, because moving it is possibly the least fun web related thing you’re ever going to have to do in your life.
