Aby-a-Day – November 30: “Game” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Game.”


Cats are lucky. It’s really easy for them to find game meats to eat. Like these two cans of cat food made of Beaver and Rabbit.


I’m actually envious. I love game – venison, rabbit, duck…I’ve never tried beaver, though.


Lucky Jacoby!


“Come on, Mom! OPEN them, already!”




Nom nom nom…


…nom nom nom…

Aby-a-Day – November 29: Gun-Hee’s Thanksgiving (Friday Flashback)

Gun-Hee only had one Thanksgiving with us.


Sadly, we had to travel on his only Thanksgiving, so he didn’t even get to experience the glory and the wonder that is a Thanksgiving turkey.


He got to eat at the cats’ table (aka the floor) and share with his adopted brother Patrick and his sisters Tessie and Kylie.


He still got his turkey, though. I cooked one for Christmas dinner that year.

Aby-a-Day – November 28: Dinner aftermath

What’s the best part of Thanksgiving? The anticipation? The food? The football? The fact that is is now, officially, “The Holidays”?


How about, “None of the above”?


I think the best part of Thanksgiving is relaxing on the sofa after dinner.


With a kitty, of course.


As you can see, Jacoby wholeheartedly agrees.


“Wait…do I hear…LEFTOVERS!?”

Candid shots from Westchester

At the Westchester show this past weekend, the club had a photographer, Olek Kuperberg, taking candid shots throughout the day. Here are the ones he took of Jacoby and I.

Close up on his face.

Looking good from the front…

…from the back, though, not so much.

You can see all of the shots he took on his website.

And in the shameless plug department…

Abys in Need: Jellybean in Anjou, Québec

Four months old, people! FOUR MONTHS!!!

Jellybean is a four-month old Abyssinian. She has been put up for adoption because she has luxating patella, level 3 or 4, on both sides. She has no trouble getting around, and doesn’t seem to be in pain. But with time, if this condition isn’t treated, she is at risk for developing arthritis. As her condition is fairly serious, we strongly recommend surgery. Failing that, she will need glucosamine supplements or a special food for healthy joints. It will be especially important that she not be allowed to become overweight. Jellybean is adorable, sociable and affectionate. She is declawed on all four paws. Her adoption fee is $150, which includes spaying, deworming, first vaccine, and microchip.
