Aby-a-Day – May 27: Like human, like cat (Fashion Friday)

I got Jacoby a little folding raincoat that we can carry around in case of sudden summer thundershowers. It’s actually a well-made, well-fitting design and it looks great on him (it’s made in Canada – just like Jake!).


Kris in our building took these photos of us when we came home from going out on a rainy afternoon, the pair of us in our raincoats. We make quite the team.


Don’t we, Jakey?

Ali the Aby needs a home!

I happened to check Purebreds Plus’ website today to see if there were any Abys, and I discovered Ali!


Ali is a tiny little red Aby girl who weighs just over 5lbs! Her description on the website says: Ali is a purebred 5-6 year old female Red Abyssinian. She was surrendered to rescue when her owners moved and could only have one cat in their new home. Ali was pretty upset by all the changes in her life but that is behind her and she is ready to go to her forever home.

Ali is delightful, a beautiful clear red color, petite and friendly. She weighs all of 5lbs. 11oz. She will delight you with her athletic feats and carry on a conversation with you. Her perfect adoptive home would be indoors with adults (maybe also older respectful children), where she can be a part of her family, helping on the computer, cooking, styling your hair or whatever she may want to be involved with. She would be happiest as an only cat or with one other calm cat. Please understand the Aby personality. Abys are not for everyone. http://www.cfa.org/client/breedabyssinian.aspx

Ali is healthy, current on vaccinations, spayed, FELV/FIV – neg/neg, and microchipped and litter box perfect. She is fostered in Pleasanton. If you would like more information about Ali, contact her foster mom, Karen at (925) 462-1608 or k.pahler@comcast.net if you have questions

She’s a bit older than Angel, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she and Angel were related. She looks like a wonderful little girl. If you’re in NorCal (or are willing to fly out there) and need an Aby in your life, check out Ali.

One of his photos was featured yesterday on I Can Has Cheezburger…

It’s a photo of either Belle or Kolan, and you can see the original here, on his Flickr site.
