Aby-a-Day – 23 Januari 2020: Fun under the covers (Thursday Things)

Lorelai loves to bury herself under our duvets.

And Izaak loves to attack the moving lump under the duvet.

It’s so funny to watch him stalk the lump.

I really should have made a video of this…it was so funny watching Zak try to predict where the lump would go next.

“HA! Gotcha!”

“Wait, what?”

Alfred comes to try to help. Spoiler alert: He isn’t helpful.

By the time Dashiell shows up, Rory has admitted defeat and popped up from under the duvet.

Is it just me, or does Zak look disappointed?

Aby-a-Day – 21 Januari 2020: Castle Cats (Cartoon Tuesday)

So, on our way to see Frozen 2 downtown, I couldn’t help but notice a power box decorated with the very lovely Castle Cats.

I had no idea what they were or what they referred to, and come to find out that they’re part of a video game designed by PocApp Studios, based right here in Skövde!

How cool is that? I am not much of a gamer, but I may have to check out this game!

Aby-a-Day – 20 Januari 2020: Lorelai at the Vet (Medical Hipstamatic Monday)

Last week,Loreali went to the vet to have some sores on her ears and head checked out. This first photo is at the bus stop; you can see the general lack of winter we’ve had in the background.

Rory rode the bus like the pro she is, and I didn’t need to let her out during the ride.

We got to the vet early and were ushered into our exam room.

While we waited for the doctor, Rory investigated Dashiell’s carrier, which we used for the trip today.

Then the nurse came in and left the scale on the table. Of course, Rory had to investigate it, and it had some interesting smells.

Apparently, they were VERY interesting smells!

But at the end of the day, Rory’s skin issues were most likely related to her early, temporary, heat.

So her issue was hormonal, and not contagious. GREAT to know!

Of course, right at the end of the visit, Rory got a little naughty. What can you do?

Aby-a-Day – 19 Januari 2020: Where the Boys Are (Swedish Sunday)

In my last post, I wrote about how all our cats interact, and all the different alliances they form with each other cat. Yesterday, it was our two girls; today it’s the boys’ turn.

It is not at all unusual to see the three boys, Dashiell, Izaak, and Alfred, together in a sort of pack.

They seem to gravitate to the same napping spots.

I usually wake up to all three of them in bed with me. Zak is usually under the covers, Dash is against my right side, and Freddy is either on my chest or under my right arm, next to Dash.

And then, Zak and Dash have a special bond…after all, Zak was Dash’s first friend.
