Aby-a-Day – January 11: Tessie and Jake (Friday Flashback)

Last Sunday’s post about Tessie mothering Jacoby reminded me of these photos, taken when Jake had only been living with us for a couple of weeks.

Fashion Friday: Abyssinian…nail polish?

Yes! It’s true!

Every so often, I search Etsy for Abyssinian items. The other day, I discovered this lovely nail polish from Kunimitsu Nail Potions. The description reads: “Inspired by the beautiful ticked tabby coat of the Abyssinian cat! A creamy nude polish with tiny black bars, gold glitter and specks of coppery flashes.”

Oh, my! I don’t wear nail polish on my fingers, but I do on my toes, and you can bet I’ll be sporting an Aby pedi come sandal season!

She also has a number of other cat-inspired shades: Classic Tabby, Flame-Point Siamese, Seal-Point Siamese, Love is a Kitten, Calico and Catnip.

I love it! Cat-themed nail polish for the cat lady who has everything!
