    • I love the conversation asking people to post photos of people's dogs - I posted my two canine cuties there. But I have owned both dogs and cats, and loved them equally. So I'd love to see your cute kitties! Here's one of our beloved Fred, a ginger tom who lived to be almost 21. Sweetest creature on earth. He would follow us around the neighborhood like a dog. He once waited in some shrubs while were at a neighbor's holiday party. My daughters and I left the party first, and he came popping out of the shrubs, meowing and chattering at us all the way to our front door. But he wouldn't come in the house. He went back to the same shrubs and waited til Dad came home, to escort him safely to the house.

    • So first of all, the founders of Reddit credit cats for their success. If not for cats, they say, Reddit would never have become the popular place it is now.

      Second, if only we had giphy when I was growing up with my sister. I am sure I saw this a few times growing up:

      And I know I instigated this with my lizards:

    • This is Qubit. She's the sweetest and most beautiful cat in the world. She loves sleeping, eating, sitting on laps, sleeping, and also sleeping.

      She's 15 years old now and has developed some food sensitivities and inflammatory conditions that sometimes cause her to have trouble keeping food down, so we have to be careful what we feed her and we can't leave her home alone for long anymore since someone needs to be around to nurse her through stomach issues when they occur.

      Every morning when I walk out the door to go to my office Qubit follows me to the door, and every evening when I walk in she greets me. @Felicity has said she's the spirit of our house, and I think she's right.

    • This is a neigbor cat that spends a lot of time in our yard. Recently she got curious enough to come in the house. We call here BC, short for Butterfly Cat. When we first noticed her as a young cat several years ago she was chasing a butterfly.

    • It's a quote attributed to the French director Jean Cocteau: "I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul." I haven't found a source citation for that, but I find the attribution plausible, since there are a bunch of photos of him like this:

      J'aime les chats, parce que j'aime ma maison et qu'ils en deviennent, peu à peu, l'âme visible. Une sorte de silence actif émane de ces quelques fourrures qui paraissent sourdes aux ordres, aux appels, aux reproches.

      This longer version adds 'A sort of active silence emanates from these furry somethings, who seem deaf to orders, to appeals, to reproaches.' Yup, that's cats. :)

    • Hi Chris!! :)

      Moonie weighs in at about 15lbs. I wish he was bigger!! LOL

      He's smaller than a regular Maine Coon... but it's because he's not full. He's got a little ghetto in him. :D

    • This is my cat Karma. He can be very sweet, but he's a feral rescue, and when he doesn't get something he wants he bites. Hard. He draws blood. I call him my bitey boy.

    • Although I have been called catty I am not a cat person perse', but my sister is the opposite, this is her cat Honey, this cat is evil pure evil.

    • thank you much! i could not believe how calm my cat was when i shot this with my strobes firing off. she is the more skittish of my two cats and she was a champ through the whole shoot

    • My brother had a cat named Daisy who would attack any human but my brother. She absolutely loved him, a one-man cat. Anyone else -if you got anwhere near her she'd swipe at you and draw as much blood as she could. Vicious beast, that one.

    • I can't imagine what kind of cat besides a trained show cat would put up with that. A strange space! That smells like other cats! While a weirdo touches you with tools! *hiss scratch hiss*
