So many Cat Avatar Pictures.

Postby Methiculous » Sun Jun 09, 2013 11:00 pm

I've noticed a lot of cat avatar pictures here on this forum. (ok maybe 4, Xanth, Szaxx and CFTraveler, (Lionheart is the king of cats), but they were all in a row in one of the threads and it got me thinking why?)
What is it with cats?
I use to have one and it slept all day and found interesting places to sleep all the time, as if it was an expert sleeper or something and devoted its life to it.
Maybe that's why cats are so common on a forum like this.

If you want to learn how to sleep.... watch and learn from a cat!
I close my eyes and see what I can see, whatever it may be.
It could be the sea, or I could see a bee.
Don't you see? It doesn't matter to me. Just let it be!

Some time ago I saw it somewhere, and was enchanted by it. So I saved it in my computer. I wanted to use it in some way, it just never occurred to me to use it as my avatar. So when I came in I was looking at all my avatars (the one I made, the one a friend of mine made for me, and the one my son made for me) and found the Avada Kedavra kitteh (which I named, I don't know what it was originally called or who took it) and I decided to use it. It was later when someone mentioned it that I realized a bunch of people had cat avatars. Xanth has always had his, I always loved his.
BTW, I have two cats that are "mine" (neither looks like AKK), one backyard kitteh that used to be feral (but now lives in my backyard) . That's half the amount to qualify for 'crazy cat lady'. I love them all, even the wild ones.

I plead guilty! Mea culpa. After all, I'm just a ... COPYCAT. :mrgreen: :lol:

When I registered here I saw the many cats already and thought it would be a nice furry zoo, so I joined with an old dear lady friend of mine who is in cat heaven now. :cry:

My kitten of terror was just a cute happenstance I came across one day.
I used it because it was adorable... and it just kind of stuck. LoL

I tried changing it before, but nothing else ever really looked quite right. hehe

And yet another cat I didn't mention: Sinera!

I don't have an avatar picture yet. I was thinking of drawing a picture like I did at the 'world of lucid dreaming', but I will make it more 'cat-like'

I might as well join in and be a copycat too!

(I've met two interesting cats in my lucid dreams so it has meaning for me anyway.)
One was the Magnum Beefy I wrote about back in April.
But one time during sleep paralysis there was a very frisky cat in my bed. When I finally got control and left my room I decided to conjure a bunch of kittens and lay down and let them crawl all over me just for the fun of it. However, my subconscious didn't de-claw them and it actually hurt!
I close my eyes and see what I can see, whatever it may be.
It could be the sea, or I could see a bee.

There's just something about cats that I really love. I love dogs as well and on average, they seem to have a higher propensity for intelligence. But when you find a smart cat, they can give a doggy a ride for his chicken bones. When you get a dog as a puppy, they will love you unconditionally but a kitten will make you earn their love and trust. Even a dog lover can respect that much.

The funniest things about cats is that they love to do drive-by swipes at your feet. They're so fast that before you can even cuss them out, they are long gone. The cats know it will cost them a meal or two and a more than likely, retaliatory palm strike to the top of their head but that won't come till the next day after they have let their guard down. Once the score has been settled, you can almost hear the cat say "well played my friend, well played". All is good until a couple of days later and you find yourself cussing the kitty out once again.

Maybe I just get demon kitties but I love them none the less.

I just now remembered that I once was (maybe) "harassed" a little by an astral projecting black cat.
:o :lol:

Here's the old thread. Robert Bruce answered it.

Here's one of my doggies. This was a professional shot taken at Summer Woofstock last weekend in Toronto. :D
