Aby-a-Day – August 1: Happy Gotcha Day, Jacoby!

Four years ago today I was given the greatest gift…

The gift of Jacoby!

He settled right in, too.

Although, not everyone was thrilled at his arrival…

And he really hasn’t changed much in four years, either.

He still watches TV in the bedroom with me…

He still goes for walks on the Harborwalk…

What can I say? He’s my best friend. Every so often, we’re blessed with a special kitty soulmate. I’ve been lucky: I’ve had four: Sgt. Pepper, the Snowshoe I had through high school and college; Harri, the Siamese who was with me from 9 weeks til he was 15 and during that time moved from California to Atlanta to Boston…then I had Jake’s brother Gun-Hee, and now I have Jake.

Jake’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.
