Black and white studio portrait photo of a medium haired white cat with one dark and one light eye. It sits up on a table or something similar draped with dark cloth against a dark background, producing a nice contrast to the white fur.

Look at my cat. Look at it.



Photo of the pink-nosed face of an orangey cat. Her name is Laddi, she is 3 years old, and she is a completely adorkable floof. In this photo, she is looking straight into the camera, her eyelids lowered in "cozy" position. She is blepping and has *the* most amazing case of airplane ears.

Now that the Katmai and Polar bears are no longer "live" on the Explore live cams, I am watching Kitten Rescue live cams and have fallen in love with all of these CH cats. Some are not mobile, i.e. cannot walk at all, but the one in the middle can get around the room and even use the litter box. The NOAH Center describes CH as: Cerebellar Hypoplasia or CH is a disorder found in cats and dogs that causes jerky movements, tremors, and generally uncoordinated motion, just like ataxic cerebral palsy in humans. A cat with CH often falls down and has trouble walking or cannot seem to walk at all. #CHCats #ILoveCats #KittenRescueLosAngeles

Five cats with varying degrees of CH resting/relaxing on beds at the Kitten Rescue in Los Angeles, CA.

The party got too hardy. 🍻 Photo from my collection, 1969. #CatsOfYore #Cat #Cats #History #catsodon #catsofmastodon #catcontent #ilovecats #vintage

Color photo of a ginger and white cat is sprawled out asleep, lying on top of a pile of paper, fabric, shoes, closet-type stuff. His paws are stretched out toward a straw “luau” hat with the loose straw fringe around its upturned brim, the kind of hat that white suburban people would wear to Hawaiian themed parties in the 60s (or possibly still do I have no idea).

A color illustration of a black cat with green eyes wearing a blue and grey bathrobe, standing at a bathroom sink with a toothbrush in one paw and glass of water in the other, his little face looks like he is swishing water inside his mouth.

Black and white photo of a medium haired tabby cat (it appears ginger to me) eating or drinking from a bowl on a light colored floor. That doesn't sound do great but it's a very well done photo. It is taken from directly in front of the cat down at its eye level and the focus is tight on the cat's face. You can see how beautiful it is, its serious expression, and every detail down to the last whisker while the body is out of focus and the background is simply a dark blur. It's almost like the cat is in a spotlight on a stage.

Sure smartphones are great but so were the days when switchboards were overseen by giant tabbies. 1951. #CatsOfYore #Cat #Cats #History #catsodon #catsofmastodon #catcontent #ilovecats #vintage

Black and white photo of a white woman facing away from the camera to attend to an old fashioned telephone switchboard in a wooden cabinet. On the top of the cabinet a huge orange tabby sits up, surveying the operation.

Black and white photo of a shorthaired tuxedo kitten standing outside on a lawn, meowing in the general direction of the camera. Behind it is a white shoebox and a fluffy little owlet is sitting in it, looking unbothered.
