Aby-a-Day – April 30: Really, Jake? Really?

Jacoby cannot not be in a photo.

Angel is not pleased…

Aby-a-Day – April 29: The OTHER side of Jacoby’s bedside manner

As I illustrated in this past Tuesday’s cartoon, Jacoby really doesn’t like it when I sleep in on Saturdays.

I can’t tell you how many mornings I’ve woken up to this face hovering over me.

However, yesterday I managed to get a semi-decent shot of Jake’s favourite wake-up trick of biting and pulling on my earrings to get me up. Granted, these were taken with the iPhone’s front camera, which isn’t very high-res, but you can see what he’s doing.

He’s a smart cat. It’s really hard to sleep through someone trying to yank your earrings off of your head.

Aby-a-Day – April 28: Jake the therapy cat

It’s been a while since Jacoby and I have done any Pet Partners visits, and that’s mainly due to my having surgery last August. But that doesn’t mean Jake isn’t therapeutic!

I stayed home sick one day this week with an attack of vertigo, and when I woke up from a nap, this was the first thing I saw.

Jake had cuddled up against my stomach to help me feel better! I had to carefully reach for my iPhone to get a photo without disturbing him, so this is a very close close-up shot!

To orient yourself in the photo, the burgundy and blue-and-white-flowered comforters are to the left. I’m on top of the comforters, and the black at the upper right is what would be my lap if I were sitting up.

The one thing I wish I’d been able to capture is the cute little stretch/hugging his back legs thing he did when I woke up and petted him.

Aby-a-Day – April 27: Angel and Jacoby, a love story (Friday Flashback)

When Jacoby was a kitten, he and Angel used to playfight together tirelessly…

They used to be so much fun to watch…they would just chase each other for hours. I even managed to capture it on video…this is when Jake’s a bit older than the photos above, however.

They need to start playing like that more; Angel’s becoming a bit of a butterball lately! A little workout with a ruddy sparring partner might be just the thing.

Aby-a-Day – April 26: Sound asleep

Angel’s most favourite place to sleep, as I’ve mentioned many times before, is in front of our large flat-screen TV.

Which I get. I mean, it makes total sense: it’s warm, it’s right where we’re always looking so she feels safe from sneak Tessie attacks, and she’s literally basking in our attention.

But, depending on what we’re watching, it’s loud. I’m always impressed that she can crash out so completely in such a noisy place!
