Aby-a-Day – 12 Juli: Don’t let the cat out of the bag (Hipstamatic Monday)

Yesterday, we took some recycling out to the bins, and of course the cats came with us. Which, of course, drew the kids in like a magnet.


This one little boy, who we’ve seen outside as long as we’ve been taking the cats out, loves the cats…


…but his love tends to involve happy shrieks and picking them up. Alfred and Izaak generally get enough love and prudently run away and hide in the bushes. But Lorelai on her leash is a captive audience for his attention.


It’s funny. This boy loves the cats, but is also a little afraid of them. I don’t know what he thinks is going to happen or what he thinks Rory is going to do.


Eventually Rory went into one of our recycling bags. This fascinated the boy.


It also brought a little girl to look at Rory in a bag.


They had a pretty good time playing with the bag, Rory and the kids. It was cute to watch.

  1. I love how the Hipstamatic effects make Rory look like 4 different colors of Aby in the top 4 pictures. I particularly like the photo you chose as the lead picture.


  2. The kids are behaving pretty typically for their age – which we cats refer to as “the annoying stage.” Some of us tolerate it better than others. When my human was growing up, when kids reached that stage and the cat acted on her annoyance, the parental response generally was, “Well, that’s what you get – let that be a lesson to you!”


    1. Yeah…this guy really loves the cats, especially Freddy. But for some reason Rory makes him nervous. Rory’s super bulletproof, thank goodness
