    PHOTO THREAD!!!
    Hi, I'm Snowy's momma, we're new here and wanted to get to know all of you a bit better!

    THEME: Cats being funny...crazy...weird (AKA: Cats being cats!) :p

    Will be uploading Snowy's images if and when I'm able to. :)

    ***********************************

    Two rules (MUST) :

    (1) show us a picture of relaying to something funny, crazy or embarrassing that has either happened / about to happen! Put the back story to the image below it :)

    OR

    show us an image of your cat(s) doing something crazy, weird, funny etc.


    (2) Tell us about one time when something funny, crazy, embarrassing happened with you and your cat / to your cat :)

    *********************************

    OTHER: (OPTIONAL) :)

    (3) Tell us a little bit about how you first got / met your furbaby!

    (4) Give us cat-lovers one tip (anything to do with cats that you've learnt from experience)

    *********************************

    Can't wait to see all the images and hear about all the experiences!

    ************************************
    I also created one other thread ...

    A cat trivia quiz... anyone who wants to can join in!

    All the information and rules are included in the thread linked below.

    Deadline for round 1 of quiz: Saturday 26th May 2018 at 3pm!

    Link for thread:

    ************************************

    Enjoy everyone! :)

    A nice idea to get to know cats and slaves around here. :)

    So here goes:

    1. Not embarrassing but very cattish- of course you can use stairs to go up, but that’s so ordinary.
    C4A5CD6C-2EDC-4E75-9933-872E0D7509A8.jpeg 23C0BAED-F8E7-4DAB-982A-AD193A09E467.jpeg 17E36A06-20A6-4916-A1E0-FDB7BE82C7E1.jpeg 950A7DF4-8345-40D9-BD72-6D0453196008.jpeg 30BD65C6-8E07-4E72-B014-F902DC52CED1.jpeg

    3. When we decided to adopt cats the 'Katzenhilfe' directed us to a foster family where 2 girls waited for adoption, 16 weeks old. Nobody wanted them as their mum was a feral and people were afraid of the girls being too wild.
    My elder son and I went to have a look and we knew those two were our new family members. They are completely affectionate and trusting and loads of fun. Bad luck to all those people who didn’t want them, good luck to us.

    4. You think you really know your cats? Forget about it!

    My lovely girl smeagol. Strange name i know but the reason she was named that was because the way she looked when we first got her. A friend of the family called up saying that she had found a very young kitten wandering around in the forest. Obviously we looked for her mother in the forest but she was no where to be seen. It was also clear she had been wandering for a few days and had not drank any of her moms milk because she was extremely thin. We decided to take her in as we already had 1 black cat. Straight away both cats loved each other. The same day we took her in she caught a bird out of the sky! bearing in mind i would say she was only 1 to 2 weeks old. I assume due to lack of milk as a kitten she didn't grow any fur for a few weeks which is why we called her smeagol due to her appearance. Are only explanation to how she survived in the forest is that she must of caught bird as a very young kitten which is amazing.
    We now have 2 cats sukie and smeagol and they both love each other like sisters. As you can see in the photos she loves stretching out everywhere especially in the sun.

    Awww your babies are gorgeous!
    Love the stairs just like my Snowy does at 1 am... she's like "momma... I think now (1am) is the time for me to do my daily sprints from the top of the stairs all the way down and back again!"

    :p

    I don't really 'like putting up, sending or showing images of my kitten to Anyone (literally anyone... I know it's stupid!).

    The main reason being because I've had really bad experiences in the past with other cata when I did put their pictures up (etc) and it's kind of scarred me inside emotionally:-(

    Maybe one day in the future :)

    I'll describe her though:p

    She's a white kitten, with a light grey /black patch on her head and a pink nose. :p

    Why post a photo thread and expect others to post pictures of their cats when you are not willing to do so yourself? Feels a bit like double standards. Pity because it could have been fun

    Hi this is a photo thread.
    I explained my reasons for not posting photos of my kitten.
    I don't 'expect' anyone to do anything.
    IF someone wants to post in this thread then they can.
    I just wanted to get to know some of the daily members here.
    I also asked if anyone had any questions for me they could ask away :p

    You had a question and I replied :)
    Thanks for your reply / question :)

    Have a great day!

    Its just strange to start a photo thread, when you dont plan on posting any photos yourself. There are already photo threads that exist, where you can get to know forum members.

    I'm sure your reasons were good, but you didn't explain your reasons why you won't post pictures of your own cat, it therefore feels a bit like you can see problems with your cats picture appearing but our cats are not as vulnerable or important or needing protection as yours are. Getting to know members takes time, I still don't really know them, but all that will come with more posts and general chit chat. How about a brief personal history from you to get started?

    Hi,
    I did say my reasons for not posting images in the first few posts...
    I don't think any of them things about your pets...

    @KoolK
    I don't understand how something that hurt you is a request you make of others. The problem caused is not explained but very vague.
    I don't want you to feel ganged up on but my initial thought was this is a bit strange.
    Like if I said, I won't go in this pool, it is too deep and dangerous but please you guys, all jump in, I want to watch....
    Maybe you can be clearer in what happened?
    Or it seems a bit like a psychology experiment.

    Okay I'll tell you what happened.

    I put my cats picture up and everyone kept commenting on how gorgeous and beautiful and cute she was.
    This wasn't on the per forum by the way... this was in general.

    2 days later someone had poisoned her and she died.

    I know some people don't believe in all this black eye nonsense and I didn't either nor do I honestly ...

    But her death shook me so hard that now I don't even take pictures/ post them of this kitten I have now. :-(

    I understand what you are saying and bow that's I've told you I hope all of you don't tell me (again) what nonsense this is because I already know.

    This was all very recent only a year ago so you should understand how hard this is for me.

    Thanks

    I am very sorry that happened to you - harsh. You do not have to post photos or take photos if you are not comfortable with it
