Aby-a-Day – Day 118 of 365

This past Saturday was the only warm, non-rainy day in about two weeks, so I took Jacoby on his first big outing to Boston Common.

He did so well and I am so proud of him! He was unfazed by people, dogs, little kids…I’m thrilled, because if he was that composed on his first trip to a very public park, it bodes well for his becoming a therapy cat.

Here is Jake with a very nice young man named Benjamin.

A new friend on Catster!

I have profiles on Catster for all of our cats, and today I got a friend request from an Aby named Toki who lives in NYC.

His mom found me because I posted on the “Cats who act like Dogs” group. I accepted, of course…but not without a friendly reminder that Jake was named after a Red Sox player…Though that shouldn’t be a problem, since his full name is Nantucket!

Even cooler? He’s from Instincts cattery. That’s the Jacoby’s mother is from – her full name is Instincts Santa Catalina of Pellburn. They’re related!

(Instincts tend to name their cats after islands…now the name Nantucket makes perfect sense!)
