Fashion Friday Bonus: Jacoby’s brother Dillin as HIS namesake!

One of Jacoby’s Halloween costumes was a Red Sox uniform, in honour of his namesake, Red Sox centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury.


Well, he wasn’t the only one to dress as the human he was named after! Jake’s brother Dillin (Pellburn Johnny Dillinger) dressed as himself, too, complete with tommy gun and moll (his human, Sherry).

Sherry writes: I brought Dillin to CCA’s Halloween Cat Show in Halifax this past weekend. Although Dillin made every final, he didn’t get in the top 3 for the day, but his son Dylan did in the Premiership class!

Here’s a picture of Dillin as John Dillinger and me as his girlfriend (although I didn’t have the long gloves on or boa at the time for this picture) and complete with machine gun and getaway car 🙂

She adds: There’s also a nice picture of Dillin with judge Roger Boisselle who was wearing a very cool costume.

Doesn’t he look spectacular? I see he poses on the judge’s table just like his brother does! He and Jake are littermates as well as brothers; their litter was Jake, Dillin and their sister Scarlett. They also have an older brother (same parents, different litter), Buddy Guy, who we saw dressed as Buddy Guy last Halloween.


Can you see the family resemblance?

Oh, and speaking of fashion…I made some #Strollercat T-shirts on Zazzle if anyone’s interested…

Aby-a-Day – November 2: Everything old is new again (Friday Flashback)

This recent media frenzy with Jacoby riding the T has taken me by surprise. If I had to describe it in one word, I’d have to say I’m bemused by it all.


Riding the redline with Jake isn’t a new thing. His first commute was on his 4-month birthday, August 14, 2009.

I totally forgot about this til I found it yesterday, but I actually documented his epic first trip on video! Even at four months old, he liked riding the train. Maybe I should have named him Charlie..?
