Aby-a-Day – November 26: “The turkey, slain, slowly cooked over our gas or electric fires, is the central figure at our holy feast. It is the totem animal that brings our tribe together” (Cartoon Tuesday)

Some people love Halloween, others cannot wait til Christmas. But for cats, the big holiday of the year is the day they get to eat bits of a bird that’s bigger than they are.


As you may recall from the story of Birdie, the Aby who got stuck inside a turkey, however, Abys tend to take poultry worship to new heights…

Oh, and by the way…this is my 100th Aby cartoon!

Abys in Need – Chile in Texas

Got this through one of my Aby rescue lists:

“My name is Beth Jones and I am helping a shelter in Pampa, TX that has three volunteers that work very hard to get babies to safety. There is an Aby there who is already neutered.

Here is what the staff has to say about him: Chile is a gorgeous red color with slightly crossed amber eyes……makes him sooooooo cute! Personality plus…..wants to be held while purring up a storm and rubbing his cheek to yours. However, needs to be the only cat.

Chile is around one year of age. Please let us know if there is an opening for him with you! Thank you for looking, Beth 580-583-7837.” Sounds like someone is about to get really lucky! Chile sounds like a super sweetheart!
