Luna the Abyssinian Cat

Luna the Abyssinian CatThis is my neighbor's Abyssinian cat, Luna. Obiviously I've had some Photoshop fun with this photo. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Luna as she sometimes comes into my yard and catches the hummingbirds at my feeder.

The Wikipedia entry on the Abyssinian cat says:
Abyssinians are very active, friendly, curious and playful, and almost dog-like, but are usually not "lap cats", being too preoccupied with exploring and playing as they would in their natural habitat. However, "abys" will also usually adopt one person in the household and become their best friend, often becoming a lap cat as they are extremely affectionate animals. They are "busy" cats, and can get bored and depressed without daily activity and attention. Many Abyssinians enjoy heights, and will explore their surroundings in three dimensions, from the floor to their owner's shoulders to the top of the highest furniture. They are highly intelligent, and very independent. There is a long haired version of the Abyssinian, called the Somali.
