Aby-a-Day – Day 271 of 365

My husband caught Jacoby and Angel in the window yesterday morning before work…


All in Jacoby’s family

I was reminded recently of Cat Show Online, which is, as you might guess, a virtual cat show.

However, Jacoby’s father, Gr. Ch. Pellburn Scarface Cat Pacino (aka “Scar”), his uncle, Gr. Pr. Pellburn White Lightning (aka “Whitey”), and his brother and littermate, Ch. Pellburn Johnny Dillinger (aka “Dillin”) were all voted winners in the spring contest.

Here are their photos:

That’s one thing I like about Abyssinians…you get a solid feeling of family. Their family trees are so well documented since they’re one of the oldest breeds with very little outcrossing to other breeds or random-bred cats that fit the breed standard.

I wish my own genealogy was so clearly recorded!
