Aby-a-Day – April 12: Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow (Friday Flashback)

Four years ago Sunday, a little force of nature was born.

(I wonder which one he is?)

He was a handful right from the start!

He had a brother and sister and, apparently, an innate understanding of how to pose for a camera.

Sometimes I wonder if he misses his littermates.

They were really close.

Jake was always precocious.

He was the first of his litter to discover catnip!

He was always going to be my kitten. Sherry (who took all of the above photos and sent them to me before Jake came to live with us) must have told him so every day.

Because as soon as he met me, he decided I was his human, too.

Abys are Everywhere: Graphic Cat T from Forever 21

At least, I think it’s an Aby.

Catsparella turned me onto Forever 21’s new line of cat lady chic tops and accessories, but…But just look at the Graphic Cat Tee with the mesmerising yellow-green eyes!

Is it an Aby? I vote YES. Look at the markings around the eyes! Look at the “are you moving towards the treat cupboard?” expression on that face. Oh, yeah, that’s an Aby.

And the best part? It’s 100% cotton and only $15.80!
