Aby-a-Day – July 30: Horsing around (Hipstamatic Monday)

During Jacoby and Coco’s DAY OF FUN, Jake got his first close look at a horse.

The horse couldn’t see Jake (I don’t think), but Jake could see (and smell) the horse.

Jake was pretty cool about the whole encounter (shocking, I know).

But then, we didn’t really get very close.

Stil, even when the horse moved and a new horse took its place, Jake was fine with it – not even one little hiss!

Aby Shopping: Not to toot my own horn, but…

…I’m going to toot my own horn.

I made one of these Kor water bottles for myself, and I didn’t realise at the time that it was going to be available to anyone to purchase…but, it is!

Here’s a close-up of the photo of Jacoby; I made it as large as I could on the bottle.

Kor water bottles are really awesome. I think they may be the best water bottles I’ve ever used. They have a nice handle, easy-access lid that’s attached, nice drinking opening…and this really cool thing called “stones” by which you can put a photo or any flat item under the lid where you will see it everytime you drink!

Their stones are made of some kind of waterproof paper, but they’ll have a way to customise them yourself on their site, and, they’re water-resistant, so you can laminate the photo and it’ll be fine (at least, mine are, so far). CafePress only has two colours available, Fuschia and Blue, but you can buy replacement rings and caps for the stones and adapt the colour at least a little.

What’s more, if you order before midnight PDT TONIGHT, you can get 35% off with code #TA3541120!

Speaking of shopping…OMG THIS SHIRT YOU GUYS!!!

Abyshirt

Thanks to Donnad for the heads up! You see, I have this shirt! I got it at the TICA show in Providence back in March, and everytime I wear it, people ask me where I got it…and all I could tell them that a cat show vendor was selling them at a show I was at…which works if they’re cat show people but is pretty useless otherwise. However, thanks to Donnad, I have a link to give people!

The one thing about this shirt is that the cat’s eyes? End up right over your boobs. I make a joke of it: “Hey, my eyes are up here…oh, wait.”
