Everyone's cats are so beautiful! I have a special love of gray cats and bluedawg's description reminds me of our Rufus.

I tried resizing these pictures on photobucket but no matter how small I made them they still looked huge here. Anyone have any tips?

Rufus is the big guy of the house. He's chill and friendly. He only has 1 1/2 teeth (and a few of the little tiny ones) despite only being 3. When he meows his lip gets caught on one so he looks like he's snarling a lot. A friend once described him as a floppy mitten because when you hold him he just melts into a fur puddle.

We found Mia outside my mom's house. She was 7 months old and pregnant with 3 kittens. She's tiny and sweet but has this browline that makes her look angry and judgmental all the time. She's a great mama, even now that the baby she still lives with is grown. Mia likes to be close by when I'm working but is never demanding.

This is Maestro snuggling with our dog Clementine. He's Mia's baby and the only one who's really friends with the dogs. The other two cats just tolerate them. Maestro's the troublemaker and has been known to supply the dogs with inappropriate snacks like shoes and glasses.

Maestro doesn't discriminate when it comes to snuggle partners and will snuggle with anyone who will have him.

Yes, but I haven't had that problem. I'd need to know step by step what Matriarco is doing. I usually resize to preset medium, then save a copy rather than replace the photo, then get the direct link.

I use GIMP for all of my photo manipulation needs. Which means... resizing, and occasional color level tweaking. My needs are pretty simple, and I seriously underutilize what is honestly one of the very best free software programs out there.

(Open image file in GIMP -> Image -> scale image)

More about GIMP at wikipedia

I wonder if we can just stick some auto-resizing wizardry onto the forum software. atomx? :magicwang:

I forgot to post Dory, the kitten. I am in love-bad news because I can't keep him.

I made all Dory's pictures into an album so that link got removed.

This paw on the cage is what got me.

He died yesterday. Poor little kitty couldn't fight off the pneumonia even with all the treatment he got-multiple courses of antibiotics, oxygen, fluids.He was a special one and it hurts a lot to lose him and feels so unfair and makes me angry at the uncaring people who don't spay/neuter then dump the kittens at ACC where more often than not they get sick.
