Aby-a-Day – July 8: Kylie’s little pink bed (part 3) (Hipstamatic Monday)

Turns out, little pink beds make strange bedfellows.


I mean, check this out!


Jacoby and Angel, mere inches from one another.


By choice!


Okay, so it’s not exactly cuddling, but it’s the best I’ve seen in a long time.


These two haven’t really slept close to each other since Jake was a kitten.



And not only did I manage to catch our two Abys together peacefully, but they stayed that way long enough for me to grab my phone and get some photos!

Abys in Need: Skyler in Davis, CA and Ramses in Kirkland, WA

Two new Abys have come up on the Aby rescue groups this week.

First we have Skyler, a lovely red Aby in my hometown of Davis, CA. Skyler is being rehomed through Angel’s alma mater, Purebreds Plus:

“As you can see Skyler is a beautiful 2 year old Abyssinian girl and she’s looking for a very special “forever” home. Skyler has very definite likes and dislikes. She really likes chicken and tuna but doesn’t particularly like salmon or shrimp. But she LOVES the dehydrated chicken that comes in those zip lock bags and she can hear the bag being opened from the other room. Her human Mom says she’s spoiled, but Skyler thinks she just has good taste.

Skyler is owned by a local Abyssinian breeder and she wants to very best for Skyler. Skyler isn’t happy in a multi-cat household. Skyler’s mom promised that she could go to her own home where there were no other cats. A small dog or a big one that’s kinda sweet and goofy like a Retriever, might be OK. Skyler is spayed and vetted.

If you might be interested in sharing your home with a young red Abyssinian girl who needs to be an only cat, contact Karen at (707) 301-6425 or by email at karpahler@yahoo.com if you have questions, or send an Adoption Application.

Please note that Skyler is not in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home but residing with her owner in the North Bay who is placing her. Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the adoption of this cat. We take no responsibility for health and medical records of this cat. It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this. Adoption fee applies.”

Then we have Ramses, a handsome 11-year-old blue Aby with a sad story:

“Ramses originally came to MEOW as an abandoned cat, found thin and emaciated in a backyard. Turns out Ramses has Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which interferes with digestion. This poor boy was starving to death! His disease is now well-managed with a special diet and an inexpensive oral steroid. Being able to absorb nutrients has made him not only healthier but also more active.

Ramses is a high energy, affectionate lap cat who loves people. He needs a home to run around in with a lap nearby for cuddling once he’s tired himself out. He is thrilled to be cradled like a baby, and even more thrilled if you let him give you kisses! Ramses can be dominant with other cats and would most likely do best as an only cat. He co-exists okay with most of the other cats in his foster home if they keep their distance.

Ramses is currently living in a foster home. To meet him, fill out an application (available at the MEOW website and at the shelter) and bring it to the shelter for an approval interview. After approval, we’ll put you in touch with Ramses’s foster parents. Please see MEOW’s website for adoption policies, shelter hours, and directions. DOB 10/01/2002.”
