You would never know Jake ever got his foot caught in an escalator to see him today. He was extremely lucky, I know. He easily could have lost his foot – or worse. But all he has is a little scar on one toe and a funny deformed claw. And…well, and a pretty good story to tell.

All these drawings are based on photos I took of Jake during this time. Here is Drama!Jake, Jake at the vet, and Jake as an ancient Egyptian mummy cat.

Stay tuned for the conclusion next week!

I didn’t have a good photo of a taxi cab, so I used this one by Emmanuel Amador on Flickr, which is used with a Creative Commons license.

And the last drawing of Jake is based on this photo I took while he was being worked on (and while I was helping hold him still). I honestly wasn’t being millennial and taking photos to post on Facebook; I got my phone out to check Jake’s weight so the doctor could sedate him without having to move him to the scale. While I was checking his weight, I went, “Oh, hey…I should get a photo,” so I took three. If I didn’t keep track of the cats’ weight on my iPhone, I wouldn’t have any photos at all.

Aby-a-Day – September 30: The Escalator Incident (Part 1) (Cartoon Tuesday)

Since we’re coming up on the anniversary of Jacoby’s escalator accident, I thought I’d tell the story in cartoon form. I have very few photos of the incident (since I was a little busy while it was happening), and it seemed like a good story to illustrate. It’s going to be a five-part series, so here is page 1:

Aby-a-Day – September 9: Moose E. Puss – 11/30/95-8/15/14 (Cartoon Tuesday)

This is another true story, courtesy of the Abyssinian Cat Club Facebook group and Max Boutelle. Moose E. was an awesome Abyssinian and a two-time cancer survivor who just recently passed away just 3½ months shy of his 19th birthday. He once left Max a heart-shaped pee ball in his litter box on Valentine’s Day, so you know he was a special boy, indeed.

Here’s a video of Moose just after his surgery last year and here is Moose’s eulogy (you’ll need to log into Facebook to see them).
