Too much feathers and not enough fur!

Just lately there have been many pictures of feathered subjects posted on this forum but not many with fur. Here's a couple of close up and personal shots of my own furry little friend........




Anyone else want to show their own little pussy?

Here mine.



People seem to either really like cats or hate them.

I'll let you guess my view.

Re: Too much feathers and not enough fur!

Hi John

Sorry I don't have a pussy to show (can't stand 'em!), nice shot though No1 is full of detail, well done.

Since I had new neighbours move in about this time last year with cats, I've been plagued with cat poo in my garden in paticular my plant pots, I get really fed up, why oh why can't they poo in their own garden!! Does cats poo make for good manure do you know?

Sorry John, veered off subject there, nice shots good detail captured.

I'm not a cat person either: but true to form, they like me!

I hear that lion poop is a good way to keep them out of your garden. My friendly local zoo sells "used" lion bedding for the same purpose... haven't tried it yet.

Nice shots John and Andy. I like these close up details much more than the standard moggy shots.

Good detailed shots. Don't "do" cats, but they would come in handy for the mice round here!

Lion poop, what a great idea, I wonder why it never occured to me! if you ever get 'round to trying it please let me know if it works, I could definitely be in the market for a bag or two.

Thanks

The best way to stop cats pooing in your garden is to get a cat yourself! It will keep other cats off its territory but won't poo in its own backyard. We used to suffer terribly from the neighbour's cats but since we got our own, no problem!

Nice shot, Shirley, but I don't think I'd want to cuddle this one!

Thanks for the advice John, alternatively I could borrow Shirley’s big cat, I’m sure that would have the same effect.

Re: Too much feathers and not enough fur!

A little late, but I thought I would post a picture of one of our siamese cats. This is a snap of our dear blue point siamese Jade. Her eyes are a little milky as we have recently found out that she is going blind.



She was being very demanding this morning so I thought I would take a picture just to get my own back!!

Cheers

Chris
