Abys (and Somalis) are Everywhere – Weather Whiskers

I am so behind on my “extra” posts, because I’ve been concentrating quite a bit on the cartoons. I have a collection of “other Aby” things to share, and this is one I’ve been meaning to get to for some time.

Weather Whiskers is a smartphone app that my sister got me hooked on last year. It’s just a weather app like the default one all phones come with…but with cats. It’s free, and it’s much more charming than the usual clouds, suns and lightning bolts that regular weather apps give you.

That’s right. Regular, as-accurate-as-any weather…

…just illustrated with cute, dressed up LOLcats.

Like this Oriental Shorthair.

And this Bombay.

But you know I wouldn’t be posting about this app if it was just random cats, no matter how awesome it was. Of course there’s an Aby connection.

I’ve seen this Somali for Fog and also for Hot & Sunny. I have not seen an actual Abyssinian yet, but…

…Weather Whiskers does feature this Frida Kahlo Aby on their Facebook page banner!
