The cat's, like, getting eulogized around.
MetaFilter had a thread for him. Universal Hub, ever ahead of the local trend, wrote about him after the first scare. The comments section there has garnered the dubious distinction of being one of the longest-running threads without a troll. A cat site featured a history of Abbie and his writing which makes me a bit proud. Yeah, dude was oldschool. And an artist I've never met drew a tribute to Abbie the Cat; he inspired her to draw her own cat comic. He seems to have been a good influence, which gladdens me remarkably. I love it when people are inspired to create good things. I'm honored that Abbie went and did some inspiring.
People loved him who never even met him. Like me, for instance.

the martha post makes me cry every time. they were such awesome inspiring cats.
The closest I ever got to meeting Abbie was on an mp3: an outtake of you reading Fox In Socks. I don't even remember why you were recording Fox In Socks, but the outtake goes something like this:
"Six sick bricks -- six sick -- crap. Oh, hey Abbie! The kitty's here! Say hello to the kitty. ... What are you doing. Don't eat that."
*cuddles memory of Abbie from afar*
*and hugs you lots*

Abbie was loved and appreciated for the amazing voice he had which made so many people smile. I am honored to have met him.

Abbie touched a lot of people. I would put the bit about Martha in communications for extraterrestrials, because whatever else we are, sometimes we are that bit too, so maybe it's ok.
You let us see him. How could we not love him?
