Aby-a-Day – January 12: Not exactly a “hostile” takeover, but…(Hipstamatic Monday)

Angel loves to sleep on top of the cable box in the art room.


The only problem is…


…so do all the other kitties!


Angel puts on a brave face when she’s up there.


She really does try to “own” the spot as her own.


Truth be told, though…it’s tough to sleep with one eye open when you only have one eye.


A napping place so warm and so well-located has got to be protected. One must be endlessly vigilant.



If you let your guard down for even the briefest moment…



…someone might come swooping in…



…and before you even realise what’s happening…


…you’ll discover you’ve lost your prime napping real estate to a usuper!


Angel gave up and went elsewhere after these were taken. Also, I must say that I’d much rather Angel slept there than Tessie. Tessie always blocks the sensor with her tail, so you have to get up and shift her whenever you need to pause, fast-forward, rewind, or delete something!

Abys in Need – Echo (and Willow) in Woodbury, CT

If you are in New England and need an instant cat family, here’s your chance!

“A family member has been diagnosed with severe respiratory allergies to cats. That being said, they are no longer receiving the attention that they deserve. Echo is a silver Abyssinian spayed female. I adopted her from a breeder when she was 3 (He doesn’t mention the breeder’s name, so I don’t know). I do have the paperwork from the breeder.

“Willow is a domestic long hair, male. They are both 9 years old and still playful. Both have always been indoor cats. They have lived together for the past 5 years so I would hope to find someone willing to take them both in.

“They are up to date with vaccines. We are located in Woodbury, CT. Please let me know if you need any other information. Thank you for your help.”
