Aby-a-Day – November 22: Vroom! Vroom!

Jacoby’s interest in the “shopping cart” is about more than just the grocery bags.


He really loves riding the cart back downstairs with me when I return it to the storage closet.


I used to do this with his half-brother, Gun-Hee, too.


Jake and I have been returning the cart together since he was a little kitten.


He actually gets disappointed when the cart comes upstairs and, for some reason, he doesn’t get to ride back down with it.


He also gets a little annoyed if I don’t push the cart fast enough. He’s a little speed demon!


The elevator is boring! Vertical movement isn’t nearly as exciting as horizontal motion.


“Okay, mom…floor it!”

Other People’s Abys – A Supreme Kitten

It seems to be a big year for Abyssinians! At the GCCF Supreme Show this past weekend in Birmingham, England, Pontaby Paperina (aka “Daisy”) was named Best of Variety Foreign Kitten!


Daisy is from Glasgow, Scotland, and, in the words of her breeder, Lorraine, she is “a right poser.” On the Unusual Abys list, Lorraine said, “It really was a fantastic set of results at the Supreme this year, with lots of new titles for the Abys but Daisy really topped the bill. As Maggie will testify I actually cried after I seen her up on that stage…it was rather emotional to see the very first EVER Pontaby win a Best of Variety at the Supreme!”

It really has been a good year for Abys. In the CFA, 29 Abys have Granded this show year (which runs May 1 – April 30) so far!
