Actually J the forth does sound about right. Although he does also look like an Abyssinan as well, sort of.

Abbey is an Abbyssinian, which is a domestic cat breed ^^ They’re known for their larger ears and thinner builds.

I don;t really like Abbey :(

I mean, he’s a bit too…serious. And how can he love Daisy??? He hasn’t known her for very long…

xLoveandLightningx August 7, 2010, 3:40 AM EST.

Comment ID #74168

Well you can love some one without knowing them long… Abbey probably had one of those love at first sight cases…

Abbey is awesome, He’s probably one of the few characters that I just can’t have negative feelings about. He’s a lot like Mike but where Mike is getting more cynical Abbey is cheering up, for obvious reasons ;)

@Ko Tenn: I disagree, but then again, I guess people have different definitions of love. For me, it is not only a strong emotion for somebody, but one for his/her entire being, character, soul, what have you. Therefore, I think Abbey cannot yet really love daisy, nor can love at first sight ever deserve that name.

Go Abbey! That’s a view I generally share as well, which people tend to think me odd for… of course, I also don’t do the jealousy thing unlike many, which probably has a lot to do with it.

@unit2960 I’m on mobile version too you will find the character page in the about section at the top (even though that was such and old post things have probably radically changed)
Wow, two awkward moments in one comic. Nice job taeshi you do a great job capturing teenage drama, awkward moments usually come in pairs.

If I were Abbey, I would kill Rachel and Jessica. Also doesn’t help things that he admitted that he ‘loves’ Daisy. “Love” is kind of a strong word. So many of us know that all too well… :(

I cannot stop thinking about how very much alike I am to this character…. I’ve loved someone and let them go, we weren’t meant to be. I never know precisely what to say, and I swear he speaks like I do.

I like him. Sounds like something I’d say, if I were in that situation.

Abbey has his moments. Granted you got his “angry smartass” moments and then his sweetheart moments… He’s very mature in this particular strip.

Comment ID #257653

My only, ONLY issue with this comic so far has been that “l” word. The kids throw it around a tad too easily, but I suppose it is somewhat accurate. I just want you to know I do… heh… love this comic. So much. It’s put me in tears, rage, laughter, and surprise. Is there any way to donate to you, miss amazing writer?

They are the most awkward pairing.

Comment ID #291333

Awkwardness is always a thing…

And Abbey’s ears are always down, so he doesn’t look anything like an Abyssinian (even if that is what he is meant to be).
