Our cats are ALL amazingly beautiful!

the cat is captured in the picture.
We're not looking for professional photography, but do try to
keep things like image quality, lighting and composition in mind.



The Rules:


  1. Choose the best picture you have for our monthly theme and post it to this thread. Please mention the cat's name!
  2. Image needs to be clear and not too small. 480 pixels high by 640 pixels wide minimum. Larger is better.
  3. One submission per member please
  4. No special effects, borders, graphics or text on the pictures.


Announcement - Photo Editing For Contests - What's Allowed, And What's Not

I can’t wait to see these! I haven’t made anything for my babies recently but I look forward to seeing the handiwork of others. :)
Jcatbird Jcatbird , you don't have to have made the things.. it may be a friend's, or something you bought that's handmade from a market.. :thumbsup:

My kitties usually demolish those kinds of things. They don’t put a mark on a lizard or frog but they drown their toys in the water bowl. Lol I’ll see what I can find.

sundar teddy 2.jpg


Here's Sundar with his mate Ted. Ted was made by a friend who creates stunning bears. Sundar doesn't toss him around or anything, but does like to sit with him and occaisionally groom him. If Ted was sentient I imagine he would love Sundar. :)

Nightfury laying on a blanket I crocheted.

I made the blanket 10 (or 15?) years ago for my grandmother as a lap blanket. She said it was too heavy when she got sicker but still kept it in her room. When she passed the blanket came back to me and sits on a chair in our front room. Only the cats use that chair regularly which I think my grandmother really would appreciate because she loved cats and it's almost like cats nap on her lap still.

Not an entry:
This may look like an everyday cat tower, but it was made by a really enterprising young woman whose husband worked in floors and carpeting. She would take the off-cuts and make these - not a lot, but I was lucky enough to get one she designed to suit my space. I've had this for about eight years and it's still in fabulous condition.
