Aby-a-Day – 23 May: Night light (Hipstamatic Monday)

I got this cute little rechargeable nightlight for my bed.

It’s a little round ball of light, USB chargeable, and it has the option of throwing cool or warm light.

The light is really quite nice, and it gives off no heat.

Perfect for use around cats.

One recent evening, Jacoby and I were just hanging out, and I was intrigued by his interaction with the light.

I also thought it would be interesting to see what Hipstamatic would do with the light poses.

It was not a dissapointment. Sometimes the simplest set-ups make the prettiest photos.

Aby-a-Day – 23 May: Yeah…That’s not what they mean by “Dog-like”…at least, I HOPE it’s not (Selfie Sunday)

Jacoby has been a very snuggly, cuddly boy lately.

He’s been sleeping with me almost every night.

Although, sometimes, he’ll settle in an…shall we say…awkward spot.

And then…boom!

Erm…Jake? You realise that…oh, I can’t even.

Other People’s Abys: Maisy Hunts with StarClan

I cannot believe I am writing this post. I cannot believe that this is happening.

Back in January, I reported the sad news that my friend Kelli lost her Aby Emmy. In March, she adopted a new Aby girl, Maisy.

Sadly, just this past weekend, Maisy was diagnosed with FIP and Kelli made the horrible, painful decision to put her to sleep. Losing two beloved Abys in less than six months…oh, Kelli.

It’s especially painful since Kelli and I met because we shared a loss of Abys to FIP, her Maggie and my Gun-Hee. It’s never easy to lose a cat…but it’s so much harder when they don’t even get a chance to grow up.

My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend has stopped running today. Sleep well in Tuonela, dear Maisy.
