Other People’s Abys – Meet Wasabi-Chan!

Huge thanks to Catsparella for her post today about Wasabi-Chan aka “The cutest kitten in the world.”

Poor little Wasabi-Chan was rescued from the streets in Japan after a savage attack by a mob of crows that left her with severe injuries including a fractured jaw, a hole in her throat, and injuries to her tongue and gums. Her recuperation is documented here (in Japanese but Google Chrome will sort of translate it for you). As part of her recovery, the kitten had to be fed with a tube, which she hated…which lead to this:

Yes, it’s a little kitten straightjacket in the shape of enoki mushrooms! If her little face and ticked fur didn’t already scream “Abyssinian” to you, her patient wearing of silly outfits should prove she’s at least part Aby!

Wasabi-chan is only about a month or two old, judging by the photos; she was rescued on June 2nd. So I’m sure there will be much more Wasabi to come! You can follow her on Instagram and Twitter.

Aby-a-Day – July 9: The Story of King Maj, Part 1 (Cartoon Tuesday)

This cartoon is based on a true story, told by Higgs Plexus on the Facebook Abyssinian Cat Club group. There weren’t any photos of what happened, so I thought I’d illustrate it.

Stay tuned for next week’s cartoon to see what Higgs found when he got home from work!
