Aby-a-Day – Day 301 of 365

(Continued from yesterday’s post…)

I love this photo of Jacoby taken nearly 12 hours after the accident. Camped out on the sofa next to dad with his new fuzzy green toy, a little fuzzy from his pain medication, watching the Giants-Phillies playoff game…

…and you know I was waiting on him paw and foot, too. I think the only downside for him was, he’s a cat, so there wasn’t any work or school to get to stay home from on Monday.

(To be continued…)

Abys are Abys, no matter what their colour

I stumbled upon the most wonderful website today: For Cats Only.

What makes it so wonderful? Why, Abyssinians, of course! The stars of this site are two Silver Abys named Sonny and Cher.

The site is really quite cute, and the photos are hilarious. It’s really fascinating to see photos of Silver Abys; they aren’t common at all in North America as the CFA doesn’t register them and TICA accepts them in their own separate division. But Silvers are bred in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, Europe and Scandinavia;

It’s very strange that Silvers aren’t more common in the US and Canada, since one of the most famous Abys, Aluminium II, was probably a Silver Aby. He was one of the first Abyssinians to be brought to the US from England in the early 1900’s, and his name appears in virtually every Aby’s pedigree – including Jacoby.

So come and meet Sonny and Cher!
