Aby-a-Day – Day 146 of 364

When we go to Rolling Bridge Park, the circle of stones I call BenchHenge is an endless source of entertainment as far as Angel and Jake are concerned.


Abys in Need! 40+ Abys seized & available as rescues in RI

You remember those Abys I found in Rhode Island via Petfinder? Well, as Paul Harvey would say…Here’s the REST of the story. And it’s not a happy story, but I hope it’ll have a happy ending.

Forwarded message:
“I thought you would be interested to know that the Potter League for Animals removed 48 Abyssinians from a cat breeder in Newport, Chickwick Abyssinians, from her house. They also removed a corn snake, one dog, a turtle and two other household cats. She now has no animals. This situation was discovered because there was a fire in her home and when the fire department came they discovered such filth that all these cats were living in. I looked at her website and it is a pretty nice website, you would NEVER think that she had terribly sick cats and kittens. The Potter League has most of them presently, they have other rescue groups coming in and believe it or not only one had to be put to sleep because its eye was not in the head and one did die at The Potter League. According to one woman from Potter’s she is a greedy woman and only cares about selling her kittens. She lives on one of the most beautiful locations in Newport, you would never think this woman would live in these conditions.”

If you’re interested in helping to rescue one or more of these Abys, please contact the Potter League for Animals (Newport, RI), 87 Oliphant Lane, Middletown RI 02842

Abyssinians are Everywhere!

Searching for “Abyssinian Cat” on Amazon, I discovered a song called Abyssinian Cat by Syzygys, a Japanese “microtonal pop music” duo. The mp3 is also available on iTunes; either place it’s only 99¢, so I bought it.

I haven’t listened to it, yet (and I have no idea what microtonal pop music actually is), but it’s a song called Abyssinian Cat! I had to buy it!
