Aby-a-Day – October 4: The cement is always greener

Jacoby is fascinated by the chain-link fence at the park.


There’s nothing on the other side except Gillette’s guest parking lot, the sidewalk, and Dorchester Ave.; basically, a bunch of concrete and asphalt.



But he wants to go there instead of explore the grass. Guess he really is an urban feline. Or maybe he’s just looking for his friend Romeo.


I like that cat philosophy: “If it happened once, it could happen again. Better check.”

Other People’s Abys – Furniture models

One of the posts today on Moderncat featured some gorgeous new napping designs from Danish cat furnituremakers Cat-Interiors. They are lovely…but what really caught my eye was their model!


She is Mrs. Schmitt, the highly demanding Abyssinian member of their design team, and also their feline spokesmodel. When you visit their site, she’s their favicon, too!

But the Moderncat post reminded me of something I’ve been meaning to post. I don’t remember how I found them, but check out Phoenix Feline Furniture’s wonderful custom driftwood cat trees. They’re made on Vancouver Island, and no two are alike…but just look at their models!


Abyssinians not only show off the cat furniture, but they also grace the pages of their website, and with good reason: Phoenixabys Cattery is the other half of the family! Lucky Abyssinians! I can’t imagine a better place for Abys than a house full of cat trees.

I do seem to have a knack for finding Canadian Abys, though, eh?
