Aby-a-Day – February 20: Blood is thicker than water (Friday Flashback)

Yesterday’s post about Jacoby’s fascination with the laundry closet reminded me that Gun-Hee had a similar fascination.

He was a little more into the laundry than Jake is, though.

And I mean that literally. He would sit in the washer…at least, until I turned on the water. Of course, I always checked before I did that…but sometimes, starting the machine was the only way to get him out of there!

He also liked to bite the knobs.

Abys are so…weird.

Aby-a-Day – February 19: Helping paws

Jacoby has the oddest fascination with the laundry closet in our apartment. I have no idea why it holds such fascination for him, but he just loves going behind the washing machine. He did it in our old apartment, and he still does it.

He’s super sneaky about it, too. You can call him and call him, and he won’t come out. I have no idea what he does back there.

jakewasherC05183

If you use food, you might get a reaction. “What, mom?”

jakewasherC05181

“Awwww….do I have come out?”

Aby-a-Day – September 28: Haute cuisine

Angel has decided she wants to eat on the top of her favourite cat tree, and not on the floor like everyone else.

angelyummyE_1520

Oh, I try to feed her on the floor, with Tessie, at the fancy new Hepper feeder in the kitchen…

angeleatE_1567

…but she’ll have none of it.

angeleatE_1568

She takes a few bites, and then runs for her tree.

angeleatE_1574

Sometimes, she runs back and forth from her bowl in the kitchen to the tree. Of course, during all this, if Tessie finishes her own and is still hungry, she’ll just move over and start in on Angel’s food.

angeleatE_1569

If you don’t put her food up there, she’ll just sit up there and yell at you until you figure it out.

angeleatE_1576

So I have to give in, and give Angel her dinner on the cat tree. I really would prefer her to eat in the kitchen (for one thing, she likes to eat her food outside the dish, which is one of the main reasons I bought the Hepper NomNom feeder in the first place!

angelyummyE_1446

Look at her face: “Well, it’s about time you got the hint and brought me my food here!”

angelyummyE_1516

This just started recently, too. For months, she was happy eating on the floor with Tessie. I’m not sure what changed.

angelyummyE_1507

She’s loved the tree since we got it back in the old apartment, and it’s even better now that it’s in the window.

angelyummyE_1504

My husband got her started on this; for some reason, he started giving her breakfast up there and now she wants all her meals to be served on the patio.

angelyummyE_1474

Nom…

angelyummyE_1463

Nom…

angelyummyE_1456

Nom!

angelyummyE_1452

Delicious!

angelyummyE_1453

After supper, it’s time for washing up, of course.

angelyummyE_1450

It’s so funny how adamant she is about eating her food up there. Thank goodness no one else is so stubborn!

Aby-a-Day – November 18: Fine boned (Hipstamatic Monday)

When Jacoby was a kitten, he loved to play with round lambbones.

That hasn’t changed a bit in 3½ years.

hipstajakeboneIMG_2499

hipstajakeboneIMG_2500

What’s not to love? They smell and taste good, they’re a nice shape to pick up and carry around, and they make a good loud noise when dropped and kicked around on the hardwood floor…

hipstajakeboneIMG_2482

hipstajakeboneIMG_2502

He likes to pick them up and play with them in our bed, too.

hipstajakeboneIMG_2516

hipstajakeboneIMG_2535

Until it falls off the bed (and I’m sure the people downstairs love when that happens!)…

hipstajakeboneIMG_2508

hipstajakeboneIMG_2507

…and he has to go chase it down!

hipstajakeboneIMG_2524

hipstajakeboneIMG_2525

Then it’s back to the bed so the fun can start all over again!

hipstajakeboneIMG_2528

(And yes, I have found lambbones under my pillow. Why do you ask?)

hipstajakeboneIMG_2547

He loves it when I play with him, too. It adds a whole different dimension to the game.

hipstajakeboneIMG_2523

Well…he usually loves it when I play with him….

hipstajakeboneIMG_2519

I’m not kidding when I say he loves these little bones.

hipstajakeboneIMG_2494

hipstajakeboneIMG_2490

hipstajakeboneIMG_2491

Best. Toy. EVER.

hipstatessieboneIMG_2484

Tessie doesn’t really see the appeal, though.

Aby-a-Day – October 16: Napping spots is srs bsns

We have two identical black wooden cat trees from Petco. Being, as I said, identical, they each have an identical little cubbyhole at the bottom for kitties to nap in.

jakecircleIMG034

Or perhaps I should say apparently identical cubbyholes, because for whatever reason, the cats only want to sleep in the cat tree cubby on the left-hand side.

jakecircleIMG036

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone in the cubby on the right-hand side.

jakecircleIMG036037

Even though they are, as I have said, identical.

jakecircleIMG039

I guess identical is in the eye of the beholder.

Aby-a-Day – Day 364 of 365

I think Jacoby is really going to miss the tree when we take it down.

jakexmasdayN1254

It’s like his own personal fort. The new bed under there just makes it even better.
