No proper web site should be without cat pics, and since we just adopted one, I thought that it was time to start such a thread. Please post pics of your cat(s) here.

The above photo is the way he was shown on the shelter's web site.
Below is him making himself at home in our living room.

He is a British shorthair. He is vain and self-centered ( even for a cat ). It doesn't show much in the photos, but his eyes do not focus straight ahead, giving him a permanently plastered look. Also, he is fat: 18 pounds, 6 ounces. { EDIT: 18lbs, 14 oz }

So...British, vain, fat, and drunk...we named him Falstaff.

Ophelia, our six-month-old Bengal helping me cook what appears to be pad sie ew.

We also have a 14-year-old black and white called Phil.

Both of them like to steal go stones.

Does anyone else set up their board with bowls, stones, and a squirt gun?

Fatou, our adopted cat. 3.5 years, no specific race. He's playful but slightly bipolar. Hates being scratched in the belly unless he is half asleep. Can easily wake up then and slash your fingers. But loves purring at us, he's kind of weird.

We have a brother and a sister. This is him when he was about two. At this point, he probably weighed 20 pounds. Now he weighs at least 23 (he's both fat and extremely long).

Have we really never done this before (I see we have: viewtopic.php?p=98651#p98651)?

I swear I didn't stuff him in there. He's recently taken to sleeping in tiny little boxes for some reason. :scratch:

I think this is actually quite normal for cats. He probably sees trying to bite/scratch you as a game which goes nicely with being stroked, but cats can be quite vicious if they want to be so if he's not leaving deep puncture wounds when he bites you he's probably not really trying to hurt you. That said, it could be a warning bite instead of a playful one, so be careful...

Definitely warning bites. If I keep at it he'll menace me by meowling deep and than attack (usually I'm prepared and tap him in the head instead in a battle of speeds, pretty fun). But we enjoy the time together anyway ;)

This is Plietsch, 10 years old, one of my cats. The ape in the background is me.

And yes, he’s really that large. A great fighter when other tomcats are around; otherwise he is rather a bit timid and not really clever, opposed to what the name “Plietsch” would suggest (Low German, more precisely: the Hamburg “Missingsch” for “clever”).

Meeow, Tom
=^..^=

<edit>

Plietsch died in May 2014 :sad:

Yes, so common that it has become a well-known meme; see also Google Image search for “cat in a box”

How do you hide an attachment? There is nothing in the message to put the hid tag around.

Once you upload the attachment, "insert into post" (or similar) and then enclose the attached tag between spoiler tags.

Cool cats. Though currently catless we are something of foster parents to neighborhood cat's yet the photographs of them on the computer are fairly lousy and they'd both probably be pretty upset if they were posted to the interwebs. So, here are some favorites instead:

Back in October of 2013, Mrs Banbeck and I were traveling through Pennsylvania. We stayed two nights at a B&B in the Amish country. We woke up one morning to find that we had a peeping tom.

Falstaff had his first visit to our local vet
The vet had a better scale than the shelter. He was 18 pounds, 14 ounces.
We calculated the amount of food that a 15 pound cat should need, and started him on a diet. After four weeks now, he has lost some of the flab.

Despite vigorous complaints about the food shortage, he is making himself quite at home.

Falstaff was at the vet's for his booster shots today. He is down to 18 pounds, 0 ounces.
Three more pounds to go to have a healthy cat.

This is him waiting in the cat carrier.
