Aby-a-Day – April 15: Birthday presents!

The best part of any birthday is, of course, the presents! This year, I got Jacoby a couple of fun things along with some useful ones.


One of his gifts, his leopard-print harness and coat I already gave him when we went to the cat show in Providence last month. But I got him a snazzy coordinating Flexi-Fashion leopard-print leash to go along with them in situations where an extendable leash might be useful.


His one fun toy I got him is a Hexbug Nano glow-in-the-dark crawling bug. Technically, it’s not meant to be a cat toy…


…but it’s a glow-in-the-day robotic insect. Of course Jake loves it. It runs on batteries, so it needs to be played with under supervision.



Human supervision, Tessie! But, nice try.


And, last but not least, I gave him a Golden Pheasant tippet, because he loves feathers.


I tried to put the tippet on top of the Hexbug, but it vibrates too much to stay on without some sort of adhesive.


Kids these days seem to always prefer the new electronic toys over the old-style traditional toys, don’t they?
