Aby-a-Day – June 1: Happy birthday to me!

So today is my 49th birthday. Very weird feeling, I must say. Next year is going to be…interesting. Because of this blog and the Abyssinian Cat Club on Facebook, however, I’ve gotten birthday greetings from, literally, all over the world. I love the fact that I have friends all over the world who think enough to say Happy Birthday – from Australia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, France, Russia, India, Pakistan, Canada (of course) and all over the States. It’s just so cool. Ain’t the internet a wonderful thing!?

Jaocby, of course, helped me celebrate. My mom sent me an Edible Arrangementwith a balloon.

Jake wasn’t so into the chocolate-dipped strawberries…

Sherry sent me this “Abyssinian Ave.” sign along with a pewter cat pin.

This sign will come in handy at cat shows.

Kim sent me a couple of fun things, too.

And this adorable little sock mon…er, Aby.

I love his ears and his smile!

And the colour of the sock is so close to a ruddy Aby!
