The Requisite Cat (Kitty) Photo thread
As I am confirmed dog lover, I almost feel disloyal starting this thread, but here I go. We have three cats that found us and decided we were worthy. I have friends who have cats, too, and have found them to be both inscrutable, as well as quite photogenic.
I'll start this off by introducing Nalo. I took this with my handy LX5 yesterday afternoon in his living room. He is a well read cat.

Although cats are generally inscrutable, you've captured Nalo in a way that shows off his personality

Here's Tigger, rather bored with me and my picture taking. He's really quite tolerant of me

BB, your cat has the most gorgeous eyes. I'm not surprised that you gave him a home

Wow, Christilou, that's a great contrast! I know the first is a yawn, but those teeth just say "predator" to me. Then the next is so sleepy .

My dear departed cat, Scruffy. He was with us for 17 years and died this last summer. This photo's from January 2006:

Agreed, with Amin on Tigger! That's the thing I've noticed with most, though not all, cats - they can switch personalities rather quickly. Christina, Nalo is not mine - he's a wonderful cat though, never an unpleasant word nor action from him.
Deidre, Scruffy was clearly well loved. 17 years is a long time to be with a beloved pet. I will check out his photo legacy later on in Flickr. Your little Oracle Kitty's expression compliments that archway perfectly!

The archway is really small -- maybe mid-thigh height. It's a lot of work to build something like that! The cat is therefore smaller than it appears.

BB, Tigger doesn't "belong" to us either! He is a shared cat and he belongs to my neighbour. He spends time with us when he feels like bestowing us with his presence and has made himself thoroughly at home in the way only a cat can. He's about 11 or 12 years old now and so we are well used to him and love him to bits

Amin, I agree. Cats always look as though they are smiling but underneath lie those fangs! They beguile us with that docile look when underneath there lurks a small beast!
