He's twice as beautiful in real life. The photos don't do him justice. He's my buddy!

We had a beautiful tabby named Turbo for 15 years. I always think of him when I see a tabby. His head was the size of a softball. DH and he were best buddies.

I sometimes lose track of which pictures I've posted, and I don't want to flood the forum with too many of them so my apologies if I'm posting repeats, or just plain posting too often, but my blind cat Jingles is giving me cause for concern.

Jingles came to me about 9 months ago from a local rescue group (who I now volunteer for). She's about 7 years old and blind, and I was envisaging a nice, quiet and non-chaotic life for her in my home. Trouble is, she's been listening to my jazz CD's when I'm out - a lot of Billie Holiday in particular, and now she wants to hit the jazz circuit and start singing. She's a sweet young lady and some of these dive bars are a bit rough - no place for a gal like her. She seems so dead-set on it though. She's very sweet, but very self-assured and quite stubborn once her mind is made up. What's a concerned and loving Dad to do?

Aw, she is a pretty kitty. I guess Dad will just have to chaperone her on her new adventures in the jazz circuit.

I love the fact that you are experiencing her alternate universe through your cat. The more we experience such things, the better we will understand these complex critters!

I just wish I understood "cat"! Our Flashie tried to communicate with us a lot during his last 2 years on earth. He was a talker and we might as well have been dumb.

I often wonder what my cats are thinking kcowan, and how they experience their world.

It's an unsolvable mystery!

My neighbor has a cat called Stephen. He's a particularly well-balanced and friendly guy (the cat, I mean - although his Dad is cool too!) Often, when I'm leaving and coming back home, I hear a meow, and Stephen pops up. Invariably, I end up hanging out with him a bit before going on my way. He really loves the company.

Whenever I bump into one of the neighborhood cats, it really brightens my day.

Looks good Mr Paul. I know some folk aren't too keen on pet photos, but I never get tired of looking at them.

Sophie looks like a great companion!

Nice cat..... but most outdoor cats avoid people like the plague.... we have a few that patrol our yard, but run if you drive up, open the door etc...


Heck, one of our cats avoids everybody as much as possible... he will do a few drive by you legs.... but he hates to be picked up and will run away...

Good thing our other cat loves everybody and loves being picked up and is starting to be a good lap cat....

Yep, this one avoids strangers too. He knows me though because I look after him when his Dad is out of town, so when he sees me outside, we hang out. He runs away from other people though. He's a smart kitty.

I'm about to take shots of 3 kittens I'm fostering. They're up for adoption and we need some good pictures. These 2 are of Colleen. They're not from the "official" shoot, but they turned out pretty good. She's about 8 weeks old.

Can you post some from the "official" shoot? I understand if you can't, copyright, exclusive license, etc.
