    On TCS
    Time for our monthly photo contest!

    Let's celebrate new beginnings and spring time with photos of our cats and flowers or plants!
    This month, we're asking for photos showing cats with some form of flowers or greenery in the photo.

    As always, safety first! Please do not submit photos that show cats in dangerous situations or near poisonous plants such as lilies as this is not something we'd like to promote.

    The winner will be getting two cans of Bravo’s new Feline Cafe meals. Each recipe is grain and gluten free. These complete and balanced, natural dinners feature delicious cuts of meat or poultry as the first ingredient!

    Prizes can be shipped within the US only but please don't let that stop you from joining in the fun! If you win, I'm sure we can think of a US-based shelter you can donate the prize to (or even to another TCS member!).

    Submissions will be accepted through Sunday, April 23rd.

    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 [​IMG]
    4. No special effects, borders, graphics or text on the pictures.
    Photos will not necessarily be monitored during the contest. If your photo fails to comply with the above rules we may have to exclude it from the voting stage.

    Our cats are ALL amazingly beautiful! This friendly photo contest is about the way in which 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.

    Good luck everyone!

    I don't have many photographs of Mouse with flowers, or greenery, and for good reason. I have had a plant free home since he was around 6 months old because he will do anything to get to them and chew them to pieces.... :frustrated:
    I do love this photo of him though. :evilgrin:

    I had a really hard time choosing one. I ended up going with a recent favorite of Link on a log. Link loves his logs and most of the logs scattered in the yard are torn up from him scratching them. This log is towards the front of our property and his preferred lookout log when my Mom is gardening. She says he is protecting her and making sure she is safe. Personally, I think he just likes the compliments he gets from people walking by.

    This is SugarBear, a sweet Balinese kitty who will ever be in my heart. He and his best friend, Willow, loved our balcony and waltzed amid the flowers we grew out there. Sugar and Willow are now in kitty heaven and the plants are no longer on the balcony because our newcomer, Punky (see Avatar), loves to chew on plant leaves. He is quite the rascal.

    As it doesn't seem possible to delete this completely, I'll just say thank you again for help on posting photos.

    20170417_201945.jpg This is Maddie out for a walk. It might not look like it but don't worry there is someone holding on to the end of the leash. This is one of his favourite spots to sniff, I think the neighborhood cats mark this spot.

    As close as I can get to greenery this time of year. High desert brown. Plus my cats aren't allowed outside and I'm to paranoid to allow plants in the house.

    Mittens, relaxing surrounded by some spring items, including some artificial flowers.


    Sorry, but that is the closest my baby gets to springtime. He is strictly an indoor only kitty, and we are both totally happy with that!

    It's not quite spring time here, but I think my Cat Plant is about to bloom.


    Her name is Chicken.
