Aby-a-Day – March 16: Cautiously playful (Friday Flashback)

When we first brought Angel home, she was very nervous. We didn’t have the two tall cat trees then, and the only two places she really felt safe were the sofa and the bed.

But when she was on one of those two “safe places,” she felt completely safe.

(You might notice that Angel feels so secure playing on the sofa that she doesn’t even notice that she’s got a white-eared audience watching her and her toy!)

This wand toy was one of Gun-Hee’s favourites. Not only does it catch the light as it moves, but it makes a very satisfying “swooshing” sound when you wave it through the air.

Because of this, it quickly became one of Angel’s favourite toys, too.

Angel had only been living with us for about a month and a half when these photos were taken, so she was still pretty skittish; in fact, we kept her sequestered in the bedroom away from the other girls when we weren’t home. It was fun to see her play with complete abandon like this.

Other People’s Abys – Muri and Björk on Cheezburger again

For a week that started out sunny and warm but ended up cold and clammy, I was delighted to see another animated gif of Muri the Abyssinian and Björk on I Can Has Cheezburger this morning.

Don’t be mad at your Aby significant other, Björk!

Then there’s the flipside, from the end of the video: Don’t be mad at your human significant other, Muri!
