One extremely spoiled tabby named Oscar, who hates being woken up and has developed quite the baleful glare for those who disturb his slumber.

P.S. Let me know if the pics are too large and I'll resize and repost.

Your cat is beautiful, Danny B!

Here's one of mine. This is how I remember him, laid back but still keeping an eye on everything that was going on!

I think that tabbies are my favourite breed of cat.
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

What's up with all the dogs and cats?

The perfect pet is obviously a scorpion, tarantula, or other arachnid;

:arrow: They have no odor.
:arrow: They don't bark, meow, chirp, or make other noise.
:arrow: They cost about $0.20 per week to feed.
:arrow: They're even better than a rotweiler at scaring away burgelers.
:arrow: There non-allergenic.
:arrow: They're sexy. :twisted:

I'm with you Dotsie - they're horrible even if they're little and worse if they're bigger. They do eat flies though, which is why I managed to share a shower with several Wolf spiders in a tetse fly zone on the Zambezi once.

Quickest shower I ever had mind you and the generator was down so at least I couldn't put the light on - I knew they were there though :evil:

In Thailand they're used in beauty pageants:

They're also used in tattoos:

In movies:

In sexy panties:

In Jewelry:

In fact, I've got a scorpion bracelet and belt buckle stored somewhere:

Image Image

And, just discovered, giant prehistoric sea scorpions:

Now, guys, who wouldn't want to see that Thai girl, wearing a leather bikini, riding one of those giant sea scorpions?

Come on... you know you want to. ;)

Scorpions may be sexy-ish - spiders never :shock:

But blokes are just weird... :wink:

We have 20, more or less, depending on migrations and such Farm cats who live outside and keep most of the mice from the log cabin, and two extremely neurotic indoor cats who hate all other cats including each other.

One lives in the main cabin and is my husband's after deciding to bite the living crap out of me once.

The other WAS my son's cat, named Momma Cat by him, he's brilliant you know..., and she lives in my bedroom and allows me to sleep in there as long as I give her the proper food, clean water, brush her nightly, rub her belly for extended periods of time, allow her to sniff my purple hair, and let her rub her scent all over every book I read, and has a series of high shelves coming into the main cabin and lets me know in no uncertain terms when she thinks I should come to bed.

Life is grand out here in the boonies. Where the internet service is crap and yes slightly smaller pics would rock.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

If you want to see 'baleful' glares - here's the look Emily gave me on the day I left to go back to Cardiff after my first visit.
