Aby-a-Day – Day 365 of 365

Kylie gives Jacoby his New Year’s kiss a little early…


Happy new year, Abyfriends!

Aby-a-Day – Day 364 of 365

I think Jacoby is really going to miss the tree when we take it down.


It’s like his own personal fort. The new bed under there just makes it even better.

More Cheezburger Abys

This morning there were two Abyssinian photos featured on I Can Has Cheezburger!

First, Ceiling Cat as an Aby…how much does this cat look like Jake? Right down to the smug, self-satisfied smile!

Jacoby also enjoyed his catnip duck sauce packet.


He licked it until, as Steve Martin so delicately said once upon a time, it had cat spit all over it.


I caught him licking the hot mustard packet, too. “What? If I lick them, they’re mine, right?”


I don’t think that trick works on Tessie, Jake.


Or did you just not want to lick the squirting hot sauce?

Jacoby got a fresh plate of his favourite crispy catnip bacon for Christmas…


“Hey c’mon, they’re in a ziploc bag! Somebody open it! Someone with thumbs!”


Angel, however, preferred the Big Daddy.

Aby-a-Day – Day 361 of 365

We’ve been having a bit of weather here in Boston over Christmas weekend; you could say we’ve definitely had a white Christmas.


Jacoby’s seen snow before, of course, but it’s been a while…he was pretty interested in that white stuff outside the window.


The problem with using the flash is, you can’t really see what it looks like outside. Of course, without the flash, it’s tough to get a decent photo of any cat, let alone an Abyssinian.


Sadly, we don’t have the greatest view out our window…but at least you can see the snow!

Aby-a-Day – Day 360 of 365

Angel also had her share of holiday cheer, of course.


Her favourite stocking stuffers were the Catnip Sauce Packets and her Hey Pais Blue Ridge Mouse.


But the toy she loved most was a new thing I found from Petstages: a Blinking Buddy. Petstages has a great line of nighttime toys for cats to play with quietly while their owners are sleeping. I think it’s a brilliant idea and I wonder why no one has thought of it before, since cats are nocturnal and all.


Angel loves lights and things that move, so this was a no-brainer.


It’s so gratifying when you find the perfect toy for your cat. It may seem silly to people who don’t have cats, but they really do love their play things.


If I wanted to custom design a toy for Angel, I couldn’t have done a better job.
