Aby-a-Day – May 20: All aboard Amtrak (Hipstamatic Monday)

I’ll tell the whole story later this week, but last week Jacoby and I actually took the Amtrak Acela from Providence to Boston.



It seems that Jake was born to ride in Business Class.



It’s official now: Jake is a consummate train rider!


Maybe now I should get him a little engineer’s outfit?

Abys in Need: Spunky in Manhattan, Kansas

Oh, boy…here we go again.


This came through on the Aby Rescue email list.


Spunky is an 8 year old ruddy spay from Manhattan, Kansas. She must be re-homed to a one-pet indoor family. Michelle, the owner who is conscientious about screening prospects,can be reached at 520-444-1297


Spunky is also listed on Craigslist: Abyssinian Pedigreed Cat (Manhattan,KS)
We are looking for a nice loving person or family for our cat. We are finding a new home for our cat due to the fact that I just had a baby and no longer can fully give the cat enough attention or spend the proper time taking care of him. We have had him for the past 8 years and are the only owners he has had besides the pure-breeding owners who bred him for us. He is a pure-bred Abyssinian Cat that is Pedigreed and we have all documentation and his registration papers. Abyssinian cats normally live till they are about 20 years old. His name is Spunky and his name has a lot to do with his personality. He is a very active and playful cat. He loves attention and loves to play. He has a personality just like a person does. He would be a great addition for someone who is looking for some companionship or another addition to a family. However he does not mix well with any other pets so he would need to go to someone who does not have any other pets living with them.
if interested please call Michelle at 520-444-1297. Thanks!


I’m honestly not sure if Spunky is a boycat or a girlcat, but whichever he or she is, someone will have an awesome kitty if they’re in Kansas!
