Aby-a-Day – 19 May: Spring has sprung

It took a while but spring has finally gotten to Boston.

jakesunIMG_4453

Jacoby was enjoying the sunshine this morning.

Shhhh…don’t tell Jake it’s meant to rain most of next week

Aby-a-Day – August 27: Must be a full moon, or something…

…because despite yesterday’s post, this has been happening recently:

jakeangelnapIMG_8825

I mean, just look! It’s Angel…sleeping near Jacoby!

jakeangelnapIMG_8824

And not hissing at him! Maybe there’s hope after all!

Aby-a-Day – August 13: Narcoleptic truce

As you all know, Angle and Tessie have never had the best relationship.

angeltessnapC02944

Tessie was not a welcoming matriarch when Angel joined our household.

angeltessnapC02940

With all that history, I was pretty happy to see this scene one recent morning.

angeltessnapC02937

Angel was probably in the bed first, and then Tessie joined her on the windowseat. Anyway: adorable!

Aby-a-Day – August 10: Pay no attention to the cat behind the curtain (Hipstamatic Monday)

Angel doesn’t get as much of the spotlight as Jacoby does in this blog, I know.

However, I’m not sure if that’s part of her master plan…It may very well be.

Aby-a-Day – May 23: “Tanned” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

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

angelwindowC08225
I don’t know if cats get tanned from sleeping in the sun.

angelwindowC08221

If they did, Angel would definitely be bowner than she already is.

Aby-a-Day – April 26: A place in the sun

Usually, the leopard print bed in the window is Angel’s domain. But look who I found lounging in it the other day!

jakewindowC08592

I guess he decided that if Angel was going to settle in the iMac, he’d have her bed.

jakewindowC08555

It is a nice warm spot when the sun hits it just right.

jakewindowC08596

And it has a nice, active, interesting view.

jakewindowC08598

Of course, Jake’s not paying too much attention to the view when he’s trying to catch some Z’s…

Aby-a-Day – April 11: “Yet” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

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

angelsnow215C05273

The calendar may say it’s April 11th, and Easter may have come and gone…

angelsnow215C05276

…but it snowed again in Boston this past Wednesday.

springsnowC07121

So despite what the calendar may tell you…

springsnowC07102

…in Boston…

springsnowC07103

…it’s not spring yet.

Aby-a-Day – January 29: White out

So we’ve had a bit of snow here in New England…

jakeblizzardC04638

Jacoby was very interested in watching the flakes fall on Tuesday.

jakeblizzardC04647

One great thing about our apartment is that is has a lot of windows.

It was really odd to see our normally busy intersection completely empty save for the occasional snowplow or maintenance vehicle.

jakeblizzardC04719

Oh, yes, and the poor dog owners, who had to take their dogs out in that blizzard so they could go to the bathroom.

jakeblizzardC04630

Jake and I had a good chuckle at their expenses, I have to admit!

Aby-a-Day – October 9: A place in the sun

It appears that in the world of good places to nap, at least as far as Jacoby’s concerned, warmth trumps cushiness.

jakesunIMG_5654

He’ll lounge on the hard wooden floor if it’s got a nice warm sunpatch.

jakesunIMG_5655

“Hey. You know, instead of standing there taking photos, you COULD be a lamb and fetch me a pillow…”

jakesunIMG_5656

“…Now. Now would be good.”

Aby-a-Day – August 31: Room with a view

Our room at the NEMO show last weekend was a patio room – it had a sliding glass door overlooking the pool.

jakeNEMOhotelroomC08475

Jacoby was fascinated with the giant window.

jakeNEMOhotelroomC08476

jakeNEMOhotelroomC08488

I think he stayed awake all Friday night looking out at the rest of the hotel.

jakeNEMOhotelroomC08492

He was pretty cranky the next morning. But it was so cute watching him look out the window.

jakeNEMOhotelroomC08527

“Oh, yay! You’re back on my side of the window again!”

Aby-a-Day – August 8: Sharing the sun (Friday Flashback)

Once upon a time, Angel and Jacoby would sleep together.

jakeangel2594

jakeangel2595

Well, mostly. Angel wasn’t entirely welcoming when Jake first tried to join her on the windowsill.

jakeangel2600

But after a while…

jakeangel2607

jakeangel2626

…she’d relax and they’d snooze together.

jakeangel2635

jakeangel2642

These photos were taken in September 2009, and I had such high hopes that Jake and Angel would turn out to be the best of friends.

Guess I should have picked up on the warning signs!

And he looked so innocent, too…

Aby-a-Day – July 17: It’s so perfect, it’s hard to believe it wasn’t meant for cats!

We have this awesome little cloth basket/box.

angelclothboxIMG_4893

It was originally a gift basket filled with cheese, crackers and wine that my boss got for his birthday.

angelclothboxIMG_4892

When he emptied the contents, he asked me if I wanted it.

angelclothboxIMG_4889

angelclothboxIMG_4890

I saw its potential instantly and, of course, snapped it up and brought it home. I put it on one of the window seats.

jakebasketE_0917

As it happens, one of my friend Kate’s Big Daddy catnip pads fits perfectly inside. And it’s not the only thing that fits perfectly inside, either.

jakebasketE_0918

This basket is perfectly cat shaped.

jakebasketE_0919

I call it the “cat loaf pan.”
