Aby-a-Day – November 6: Columbia all grown up (Friday Flashback)

Do you remember this little girl?

GC, NW Instincts Columbia of Purrmatix (aka “Gumby”), who we met as a kitten two years ago.

We even got to share a hotel room with her. She ended up becoming CFA’s 6th Best Kitten in the 2013-2014 show season!

She was such a sweet kitten.

And you know what? She’s still as sweet as ever!

She’s now all grown up and living with Meg. She’s even had a few litters of her own kittens!

We got to see her at the NEMO show because she was travelling to meet a mancat and perhaps make even more sweet kittens. I wonder if we’ll get to meet them?

Too Cute Alert!

It’s funny, because I’ve been mentioning this a lot to people lately…but Animal Planet is running a Too Cute marathon today. At 5pm Eastern today, they’ll be showing the episode that started it all: Too Cute Kittens!

The Abyssinians, including diminutive Tiny Dancer, are from Jacoby’s mother’s cattery, Instincts, in New York. I guess show business is in his genes 🙂

Other People’s Abys – Meet Cousin Roger

Yesterday, Jacoby got a Catster friend invite from another Instincts Aby named Roger.

Roger and his person wrote: “Hi, Toki’s mom said Jacoby’s dad is from Instincts. My Roger is from a 2008 Instincts litter. I haven’t tried a harness with him yet and I’m inspired by your photos! Best, Sarah”

Roger is about 6 months older than Jacoby…and isn’t he smart? Not only that, but he seems to also be a Hipstamaticat:

I wonder how closely he and Jake are related?
