Aby-a-Day – Day 59 of 365

Angel is a very social cat and is much happier living in a home with other cats than she would be as an only cat – this was true in her foster home and living with us. However, she’s easily intimidated by other cats.

Here’s Angel with Jacoby and Tessie…Tessie makes her a little nervous, but Jake’s there, making her brave.

Another photo of the two Abys conspiring atop one of the cat trees. I like how Angel’s tail is curled.


Jake as LOLcat

I posted yesterday’s bukkit photos to to see if anyone had any LOLcat ideas. came up with this:

Aby-a-Day – Day 57 of 365

Call me crazy, but I think there may be a LOLcat in here somewhere…



Other People’s Abys – Silly Aby and her reflection

This brand new video showed up on my YouTube subscription email update this morning. Another funny example of how Abys use their hands.

Question: If you could have any fictional creature from a book, film, or TV show as your pet, which one would you choose, and why?

Absolute no-brainer, this one. Zunar-J-5/Doric-4-7 (aka “Jake”), the Cat from Outer Space.

Seriously? An Abyssinian that can not only talk but crack snarky one-liners? Not only yes, but hell yes!

And yes, the Jake in the movie is part of why Jacoby is named Jacoby and Jake for short.

Aby-a-Day – Day 56 of 365

We’re in Florida on vacation for the next few days. This is the first time we’ve been away (except for one overnight trip to New York right after we got him in August) since Jacoby came. I really wonder how he’s going to do without me and my husband there. He’s so very attached to us, me especially, and he’s just never really been alone with only cats since he was born.

I mean, he follows me around and has to be with me constantly…even if I’m in the bathtub!
