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.

I love his ears and his smile!

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

  1. Oh yeah, you’ll have something else arriving soon, directly from the seller in the US. It reminded me of a particular picture of Gun-Hee… let’s see if you can guess which one 😉 Happy Birthday Coco!! From Sherry and the Pellburn Abys!

    1. Thanks – is the the pin? I got that yesterday – I didn’t post a photo but I did mention it (the post went up before I was finished with it so you may not have seen them)! It’s adorable…but now I need to remember which photo of Gun-Hee looks like it!

      1. Yes I just saw the rest of this post – weird LOL Anyway, that picture of Gun-Hee that the pin reminded me of, I remember someone commented something like “the happiest kitty butt she’s ever seen” – thought that comment was so cute 🙂

    1. Hahaha thanks! My sister always reminds me that I’ll be older than her, so it’s nice to be on the other side for a change!
      My husband and the kitties are getting me an iPad, but it won’t get here til next week. Still – the post went up while I was still editing it…so check back because you might have missed the photos. They’re a lot of fun!

    1. He posed for photos with some of my presents – I forgot to make the post “Private” while I was editing it, so the photos weren’t on there yet. He is such a camera ham!
