When it comes to tabby cats, they can have some pretty spectacular coats. Abyssinians are known as ticked tabbies, then are Mackerel tabbies known for their tiger-like stripes, the classic tabbies we all love, and some super cool tabby cats even have spots. For one absolutely adorable rescued tabby appropriately named Miss Piggy, she’s got a stunning tabby coat with the most purrfect little spots on it.
In true cat fashion, she chose her cat mom one fateful day, and as they say, the rest is history. So, everyone, meet Miss Piggy!
How did Miss Piggy come into your life?
I had a silver tabby who got run over by a car. He was best buddies with my tuxedo, Gypsy. Gypsy was grieving so much. I went to the shelter. There were about 20 kittens in a room. I went in and there she was standing on her back feet right in front of me. I picked her up and held her for a few minutes. Then put her down so I could look at others. She kept pushing them away and standing there on her back feet. I gave up and walked out. The lady asked if I picked one. I told her no, but one picked me. She has thoroughly bonded with me.
How did Miss Piggy get her name?
I named her Little Sis but that didn`t seem to suit. After I saw her eat a few times, I knew what her name should be. She has lived up to it. She will eat anything. Even stealing broccoli off my plate.
What is her personality like?
She is very curious about people and her surroundings. She climbs the bedpost and I fear she might try to jump on the ceiling fan one day. Gypsy is a year older and they are getting to be friends. I think Piggy is more of a people kitty though. She really likes to play with the pole with the toy on the string and even brings it to me when she wants to play.
What breed of cat is Miss Piggy?
My vet says she is a brown domestic shorthair tabby. She looks silver in a different light but has a bronze tint. Her eyes are almost blue near the pupils and grape green further out.
What’s something special you’d like people to know about Miss Piggy?
Miss Piggy likes kisses too! Miss Piggy comes running when I sit down, snuggles in, and leans back to rub her head on my cheek. I believe she likes it. Sometimes she likes Eskimo kisses. I am very lucky to have found this precious girl and would recommend shelter kitties to anyone.
I’d like to give a special “thank you” to Miss Piggy’s cat mom, Debbie, for allowing me to share her story and cute images with all of the Catttide Daily readers. If you’ve got a soft spot in your heart for tabby cats, learn all about them here in this article on CattitudeDaily.com.
