Aby-a-Day – May 22: Jake’s Finnish crown (Fashion Friday)

Because “Jacoby with a Finnish cat toy on his head” didn’t have nearly the same ring…

jakeSeacoast2015C00427

Ha ha, get it? RING? Because it’s one of the crocheted rings that Sanna sent us…oh, all right.

jakeSeacoast2015C00423

I put it on Jake’s head because I could, and because it was made of metallic gold thread, it looks like a little crown. Sort of.

Heavy is the head that wears the gold crocheted cat ring toy?

Aby-a-Day – May 16: “Mystical” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Mystical.”

Throughout history, cats have been associated with mystical powers.

You see that all the time: Cats are mystical, mysterious, magical.

angelmysticalC00687

Oh, yeah.

angelmysticalC00683

Yeah they are.

angelmysticalC00685

They totally are. They’re absolutely other-worldly.

Aby-a-Day – April 5: Here comes Jacoby Cottontail!

I was in our local grocery store the other day and I happened upon a Lindt Gold Bunny gift set.

Well, once I saw those ears, I knew I had to buy it.

jakeeasterearsC07200

And you know what I had in store for those ears, too.

jakeeasterearsC07205

Well, seriously. Brown bunny ears? I’m surprised more Aby people didn’t snap these up!

We had a little trouble getting the ears to stay on properly at first, being that they headband wasn’t sized for a cat’s head.

jakeeasterearsC07213

But Jacoby’s a pro at wearing things on his head, so eventually we got it to work.

jakeeasterearsC07232

Oh, yeah, Jake got the ears to work, all right.

jakeeasterearsC07234

Work it, Jake.

angeleasterearsC07157

My husband commented that he though the ears were more Angel’s colour than Jake’s.

angeleasterearsC07155

All right, let’s find out.

angeleasterearsC07151

So…who wore it better?

Aby-a-Day – January 24: “Fan” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Fan.”

jakecheeseheadC04578

My husband is a Green Bay Packers fan.

Since Jacoby is the only boy in the house, and the only other person in the house who will watch football on a regular basis, he is also a Green Bay Packers fan.

jakecheeseheadC04600

You may remember when the Packers won the Super Bowl, and Jake dressed up in a Green Bay jersey and helmet.

jakecheeseheadC04553

Now he also has an official Cheesehead to wear.

jakecheeseheadC04552

Not that it did a lot of good last Sunday.

jakecheeseheadC04559

In case you didn’t hear, it will be Seattle and not Green Bay who will play the New England Patriots next week on Superbowl Sunday.

jakecheeseheadC04566

I would explain why Jacoby is not a New England fan (when he is all about everything else Boston)…but it’s a very long story. Let’s just say it’s because of his dad and leave it at that.

jakecheeseheadC04582

Hey, at least there’s always Kitten Bowl II and the Kitty Halftime Show to look forward to!

Aby-a-Day – January 5: Nip silliness (Hipstamatic Monday)

This is something Tessie does more than Jacoby, so I was kind of thrilled to catch him doing it.

This is a little catnip pizza slice that I got at the World Show. I got each kitty a different “flavour” of pizza, and apparently they are filled with some very potent nip. At least, Jake liked it more than than the Kit-Tea bag, the IKEA rat filled with nip, or the catnip candy cane.

So much so that he did the “rub his head and roll” move on his slice of nipperoni.
