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.
For being such beautiful cats, Abys take a lot of less than beautiful photos. Not that they don’t love the camera, but…sometimes the camera just doesn’t love them.
These are all based on actual photos of Abys I found on Facebook. There is one whose name I am not sure of, but the rest are Kiipi, Bella and Kumal, Yaro, Racy, Poupette, Jasmine, Ollie, Xapuri, Gaatsbi, Buttercup and Sophie.
Yes, they really DO all look like that!

I’d been wanting to get one for a while, so I finally broke down and ordered my very own Jacoby Pancake Pet from Tokipoki.
I got him just after Christmas and couldn’t wait to introduce Jake to his two-dimensional alter-ego.
The Pancake Jake is supposed to be lifesized, but I think it may actually be larger than Jake. Now I will have a lovely – and easy-to-pack – surrogate Jake to take along with me when I travel.
I think Jake was less than impressed, though.
“Really? Really!? Anyone can see I am much handsomer!”
Finally, though, Jake deigned to give his likeness a sniff…
“It was an accident, I swear!”
Luckily, Pancake Jake is made tough. He got a little dent, but he’s otherwise unscathed.
I love this photo I took of Jacoby and myself in a mirror at the Mansfield show.
But what I love best about it is that, through the magic of Photoshop, I was able to flip it so it doesn’t look like it was taken in a mirror. It’s a super simple fix, but it transforms a silly photo taken in the mirror into a pretty nice portrait.
