Aby-a-Day – Day 163 of 365

Since Angel’s Fling-ama-String was broken, Jacoby and I went to Petco to return it and get her something else. It wasn’t easy to find a great cat toy that we didn’t already have that she’d enjoy, but we managed it. We bought her a Kitty Hoots Catfisher Garden Mitt.


She liked it! It’s pretty nifty, because if she pulls on the “bugs,”
they pull out of the fingertips – they’re on elastic!


Tessie was pretty interested, too.


As was Kylie. Jake had already played with it on the T,
so he was over it by the time I took these photos.

Abys in Need! New York and Arizona, plus some from an earlier post

Finally got a chance to look at Petfinder and see if there are any more Abys in shelters. And I found some good news…and some bad news.

First, the good news: There aren’t that many new Abyssinians in shelters.

I found three boys, Bentley, a possible Red Aby with a cauliflower ear (probably from a hematoma); Tilt, a possible Ruddy Aby; and Hugs, a Blue Aby. These three boys are all at the SPCA of Westchester in Briarcliff Manor, NY. While I’m sure that Hugs is a purebred Aby, I’m not positive Tilt and Bently are, but it’s hard to tell from the photos, so keep that in mind.




I also found Delilah, she’s a 4 year old purebred Ruddy Aby who’s had her front paws declawed. She’s a rescue from AJ’s Best Friends Purebred Cat Rescue in Ahwatukee, AZ, and she’s in a foster home right now.


The bad news, however, is that Jared, CJ and Abbi, the Abyssinians in Need I posted about back in May still have not found their forever homes.

And in case you were wondering…no, not every cat that’s listed as an “Abyssinian” on Petfinder is actually an Aby. While I am sure that Mr. Pooh in Toronto is a lovely cat with a wonderful personality, he’s just not an Abyssinian.
