This is not actually based on the (in)famous Three Wolf Moon T-shirt. It’s actually based on the even more awesome Three Grumpy Cat Moon T-shirt and the equally hilarious (if slightly illegal) Three Keyboard Cat Moon T-shirt.
It had to be done. And I am going to try to get a shirt made, too. I’m holding my breath to see if Zazzle will let me make this – if they do, I’ll try to make a version for sale:
The moon background is actually two different moon photos by Moon-WillowStock on DeviantArt.

Jacoby is always ready for his close-up.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a phone camera, or an actual camera. He’s learned that cameras = attention.
And attention is a good thing.
To a point. Okay, you’re dismissed.
As social and as involved as he is, Sometimes Jacoby just disappears. All of a sudden on a Sunday, ‘ll look up and you’ll say, “Hey, where’s Jake?”
Lately, it’s been easy to find him.
Cats tend to go through phases in favourite napping places. Recently, Jake’s favourite place to nap is in our bed, under the covers.
He actually burrows under the covers.
Sometimes, it’s difficult to find him, he buries himself in so deeply.
I guess even Abyssinians need a little alone time.
This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Sport.”
As you saw yesterday, Jacoby is a really good sport.
He really didn’t like those boots I had him try on, but he still modeled them for me.
And when I say he didn’t like them…
…I mean he kind of hated them.
But as I say, he’s a very good sport about the things I ask him to do for me.
He may not always agree…but he humours me.
I want to try Jacoby’s blue Muttluks on Angel the next time we go outside in cold weather, so I need to Jake a new pair of boots – hopefully one that matches his green parka a little better.
I found a really cute – and inexpensive – set of waterproof boots on Amazon and thought they might work well.
If nothing else, they match his fur rather nicely!
He didn’t really like them though.
I think it was the fact that they have a hard sole, compared to the Muttluks’ soft leather sole.
He was actually able to kick these off fairly easily. I don’t think they’re going to work on his feet outside if he can’t keep them on in the house. I thought the zipper and velcro was a nice idea, though. So far, the Muttluks have been the only boots he hasn’t been able to kick off, so I guess I’ll just have to find a pair of green Muttluks on sale over the summer for next winter’s outings.
This incredible shot featured by National Geographic was taken by Rie Komoto of what happened when her Aby variant*, Meelo, saw a sparrow hit a window.
Thanks to Helen Warn of the Facebook Abyssinian Cat Club for this link!
*Meelo is an Aby variant because he carries the longhair gene. One of his parents was a Somali.
I have a really bad habit of eating while standing up.
Want to see how that bad habit evolved?
…this little grabby dance is what happens every time I eat something he wants (which is pretty much anything I eat). If he can reach, he’ll try to grab. So…I eat standing where he can’t reach. But that doesn’t stop him from trying!
