Aby-a-Day – September 12: Home sweet home

I cannot fully express how much Jacoby loves his SturdiShelter. We call it his “house” and his “mancave.”


He eats all of his meals in his house, and he loves it so much that sometimes we forget he’s in there! We’ve been known to forget and leave him in there all day while we’re at work or all night while we’re asleep, but he never seems to mind.


Of course, he is always happy to be let out…but he doesn’t always rush to escape his mancave. Quite the opposite, in fact.


And the best part is that his love of being in his SturdiShelter at home means he also loves being in his SturdiShelter at cat shows!


Although at shows, he loves being in it almost too much. Sometimes it’s hard to get him out of it when we need to be in a ring!

Abys in Need: Rasta in MA

Here’s a homeless Aby right in my own backyard!

Rasta is an 8 year old ruddy Abyssinian, intensely bonded to his people. One recently died after a long illness and the second has taken a job overseas in a country that will not allow animals in from outside. He is accustomed to a quiet home and does not care much for children. Other animals are ok with the proper introduction. He needs a little extra TLC with all the recent changes in his life, but is very playful and interactive.

We are currently in SE Massachusetts, running out of time and options for his care. Please, if you know of anyone interested in this amazing creature, please contact Heidi Savery at hsavery1@binghamton.edu.”
