Arrival Story: After Merlin the Cat Wizard passed away, I wasn't sure if I would ever get a new cat. Over the summer of 2010, I started thinking of maybe getting a cat. Someone recommended Abyssinians. I was put in touch with Fairbanks Farms. I contacted the breeder and eventually put a deposit on a current litter. A year to the day Merlin went to the Bridge, I brought home my new Aby kitten. I think Merlin planned for the kitten to arrive on his 1 year Bridge anniversary.
My newest Catster friend is Jacoby! He's better known as Stroller Cat :) Why? Because he's a frequent rider of the MBTA (Boston's transit system) in his cool stroller :) Jacoby is a certified therapy cat and travels to lots of places with his Human on the train. When he's not riding the train, Jacoby loves to walk around his Southie neighborhood on a leash.
Jacoby is an Aby like me :) He's ruddy colored and I'm red.
Jacoby has a neat blog that is updated daily. It has lots of pictures of him walking on a leash, in his stroller, and his family :) http://abyaday.wordpress.com/ Check it out!
Yesterday I was a Daily Diary Pick :D Thank you to everyone who gave gifts and sent messages and pictures :)
It's been a week since the scary stuff happened. The city is slowly trying to get back to normal. Nothing will ever be the same, though.
We heard that the fund set up by the Governor and the Mayor to help victims and their families has reached over $20 million :-O That's a lot of money. If anyone is interested in making a donation, you can go to The One Fund web site.
There is another fund for the transit officer who was seriously injured last Thursday night. That fund is here. You can read more about the transit officer here.
We hope everyone who was injured last week recovers. Many will have a long road ahead of them as they go through rehab and other services.
We are one. We are strong. We are Boston. We are Boston strong.

This is our (expletive) city, and nobody is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong.
