Update: Home Sweet Home for the Abys in Need in NSW, Australia

The Australian Abys are home for good!

Phyll posted an update to the Abyssinian Cat Club on Facebook this weekend. It’s early days, of course, but everything seems promising.

“Well everyone, here they are. OMG, Mr one eye (no definite name yet) is so small, vet thinks they are about 4 years old but he is the size of a 6-8 month old kitten. The fawn is a bit bigger but much more shy. Both very active through night and love the cat tunnel, as we know those things are so quiet when being played in, NOT.”

The new arrivals have, however, set off her other two cats. One is acting out on the other instead of the Abys: “I am having troubles with my older cat, Blueboy who has taken to attacking Baron viscously. Did the dash out yesterday and bought some Feliway and rescue remedy. I still have Bluey isolated from Baron I am expecting a call from a lady today involved in cat rescue and hopefully she can give me some helpful tips to get my old boy back to being his usual loving and smoochy self. He is fine with us just not Baron.”

Hopefully once the Abys are acclimated and meet Bluey and Baron, everything with sort itself out and they’ll all be one big happy family. Good on you, Phyll!

Aby-a-Day – March 9: Update – Climbing the Walls

As I mentioned a while back, we’re installing Designer Pet Products’ Sophia Wall-Mounted Cat Tree (which uses a blue Aby as their model). We will have four of them (two pair), but one hasn’t been mounted yet as it came missing a part.


In the meantime, though, Jacoby checked out the lowest one before we moved in.



He’s smiling!



I think he likes it! Stay tuned for more updates once we get that missing shelf up.
