Post a picture of a cat!
« on: July 08, 2016, 02:37:05 am »
I'm getting tired of threads about Brexit, people getting killed in their Teslas or miss Clinton's whatever so lets do something different and post a picture of your/a cat (but no photoshopped images!)!

There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

This I can do easily!  (It's funny you should start this thread - after the workbench thread posts, I thought about beginning a 'Caturday' thread like the one that's been going for years on another forum I belong to.)

Piglet (the luckiest cat in town; two years ago this August as a three month old kitten she was dropped out of a pickup truck and abandoned next door to a friend's house when I happened to be there, but that's a long tale for another time.  Suffice it to say that I hate people!):


Sparky (the grande dame of the lot, her purring will register on nearby seismographs):


Chloe (ex wife's cat - passed a year ago in April.  She was a sweetie.):


Peanut (passed two years ago in April.  Deaf as a post, but a great cuddler):


Ghost (the stray I mentioned being conned into taking in the workbench thread):


Gilmore (the mischievous male in the workbench thread):


Pixel (one of Gilmore's sisters):


Beaker (Gilmore's other sister, named after Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's 'able' assistent for her high pitched squeak and the patch of orange on her head):


If it jams, force it.  If it breaks, you needed a new one anyway...

This is Keshasha, the cat from upstairs. Did come for a visit one morning as she fell out of the window, and landed by my window a little shaken up, and wanted to come indoors away from the outside..

Also a parcel from Electrodacus, mounted on a brass plate and which is hanging on my wall.

Cat was in pretty rough shape when she showed up.  Most of here hair was gone, worms, no weight.  Doing fine now living the easy life.

To get back to the feline variety...

A formerly feral cat taken in by a friend in Maryland.  (The other two or three in his family decided that the cushy life beat living under a barn and eventually decided to move in, too.):

(I should have turned the ISO setting on the camera down; it wasn't THAT dark when I took it and it would have been much less grainy.  It's otherwise a decent picture.  |O)

Lots of photographers are actually a lot more down to earth than people realise. But they also know that judges are way up there in the clouds and think they know it all. The nice thing about your picture and I don't actually see much in the way of graininess is that the cat's face is in quite sharp focus while the rest of it is not so focused and the background is very out of focus which removes clutter. Selective focusing is a very well used technique in photography to get rid of a cluttered background and add significant to the main subject of the picture. When I was a member of a photography club I used to take in 2 competitions photos of the particular architecture that was in the area where I used to live in Italy. Not being very well known as the particular type of architecture only exists within a 15 mile radius the judges had never seen anything like it. Of all the judges that saw my photos most of them tried to guess at what it was and pretend to know what they were talking about only one said as his very 1st comment "I haven't got a clue what that is and I'd like the author to come and tell me during the break".

Yes, that one was shot with a 50mm f/1.2 that was wide open, so the depth of field is extremely shallow.  I find that I'm usually shooting either nearly wide open or stopped down to f/11 or smaller.  Most of my gear pics are taken at small apertures to get more in focus - the tripod is a huge help there with the long exposures needed in that case.

Selective focus and the ability to control DOF is definitely one place that the real camera shines over those in iPhones and the like.  Don't get me wrong, the phones take incredibly detailed photos, especially given their size, and I use mine frequently, but they're nowhere near replacing real cameras at this point as far as versatility and creativity go.  They're extremely convenient as well, which can bite you in the backside.  I wish I'd grabbed the SLR more often that the phone last year to get pictures of the kittens as they grew.  I'd do occasional bursts of pics with the camera, but most of the day-to-day stuff was with the phone because it was immediately at hand.  I could have gotten much better shots with the camera.  Oh well - live and learn.

Various Siamese and Burmese we've had over the years love body heat and I've found them particularly adept at maintaining their balance while draped across your shoulders. Then they can get the heat, be close to you, keep an eye on you and best of all you'll then have your hands free.  ;D

Seems you need to adjust your display settings. The grain (reddish/greenish) is rather obvious in the picture, as Cubdriver rightfully noted. I don't mind the grain so much, the overexposed light behind the cats head is more of an annoyance, as it disturbs the image and turns the cat into a rabbi with a white hat, sort of... Aside from this, i really love the picture. The mood set by the color/tone, the back light nicely contouring the left ear against the dark backdrop, and the cats inquisitive pose itself. :)
(Then again, i love all the other cat pictures too, because cats... ;) )

I find the lack of foxes in this thread disturbing.
A couple of days ago I saw a fox hunting near the road. I could watch it from about 15 meters away and it wasn't disturbed at all by several people watching.

Enough foxes... time for the cats I co-owned!
When I lived at my parents we also had two male cats. First this one which we got dibs on before he was born. I held this cat in my hand when he was just born and the size of a mouse. Ofcourse a cat doesn't stay that small. This picture is taken when he was around 18 and his bad fur days increased. He was a very smart cat too. He could open doors and get the one-way cat hatch open by using his paw. I think he died 20 or 21 years old.


And besides mice our first cat brought in a friend about the same age (he looks too red-ish in this picture, in reality he was more towards pink and I have never seen a similar cat ever since). Or maybe he just invited himself since we couldn't get him out of the garden. Also his fur was dirty and he obviously wasn't feeling right so we took him to the vet for a checkup and some treatment. Since he wasn't going anywhere we decided to keep him. He still managed to get over 18 years old.

Both cats where very sweet and they always slept together.

I'm not sure if this will work or not, but the lanky orange male has taken to climbing the ladder up into the attic.  Usually he hears me coming and gets down before I can see him, but I just put the air conditioner in and, masked by its noise, managed to sneak up on him the other day.  I haven't gotten him climbing up to get in there, but did get him coming down...  He's a piece of work!

Ok, I don't know how to embed the video - it's the last thing in this gallery, on page 4:

OK, a picture of an actual cat. The only cat I've ever owned (I'm more of a "dog person").  She had been abandoned and survived feral for at least a year before we started feeding her and eventually adopted her.  She got such a big belly on her skinny frame when we first started feeding her we thought she was pregnant.  She wasn't - but the name "Preggers" stuck. Great cat and incredible predator. Until her last few years, she spent most of her time outdoors.  Regularly brought home rabbits larger than her..

HL - Flapjack looks to have beautiful coloration.  Do you have more photos of him?

Boffin - beautiful torbie - they have some interesting coats.

Psi - the expression in the final frame is great.  Like you caught him watching porn or something similarly embarrassing.   :-DD

We got them both at the same time from the local shelter, but they are not siblings.    That was about eight years ago.

Somewhere I have a picture of Elwood in a narrow box. I've seen almost the same picture with a "Wide Load" sign stuck on the back, looked so much like mine I had to look twice to see if they didn't just photoshop my picture, but it's not quite identical.

This picture reminds me of 'my' cats. They always slept together and they used to have a round basket in which they looked yin&yang as well. Funny how some cats like to sleep together even though strange cats usually don't tolerate eachothers presence.

Unfortunately, Model 1 has moved on to the big lab in the sky.   :'(  He had a good run while here, though,   :-+  so no complaints other than they all leave far too soon.  Unfortunately his pics are on a computer that's dead at the moment and not easily accessible.  He too was a mischievous orange boy kitty, very similar in appearance and temperament to the current model 3.

Here is model 2, on the bench even though she knows she's not supposed to be there:

This is Shadow, a new addition to my cat clan.

Around six months old, a semi-stray, she adopted me recently. Had been living in the rundown sheds at the back of a junkshop up the road, sometimes fed by the old guy who ran that shop. Cats are prescient - the buildings are soon to be demolished, and she seemed to think it was time to get a real home. She has a lovely placid, friendly personality, with bursts of playful demon.

If the snake wasn't so fast, it could have been the cat's dinner.

Just Last week, I stole seven 4 week old kittens from their Feral mother under the house. They were eating Solid Foods, so it was okay to send them on their way. I posted on Craigslist, and within 3 hours, all gone, Sold them for $25-45 each.  You don't want to just give them away, because believe it or not, they end up just like that cat in the snakes stomach as above. :(

I'm sure the mom was hurtin from the milk. She was howling and looking for her kittens for a few days, seems okay now. But I had to catch them while I had the chance. Last thing we need around here are more Feral Cats.

Here's a couple pics of them (Top 3 pics of kittens, only took a shot of 3 of them) , as well as a pic of my 2 cats. The one with the bad eye (she lost it when a kitten), has 6 claws on each of her front paws. that's why I kept her.

The other one, grey one, is like 20 pounds. She's fat! But love her to death.

Alessa, named after a demon who had a sweet side and an evil side. She definitely does, bipolar schizo, manic depressive and half wild sometimes but she loves me. The name was inspired from when i first caught her (yes caught she was wild) and someone exclaimed "THE DEVIL!" and tried to shoot her. She is the queen.

Garfield, As dumb as a dead rock, his nickname is "The Great Pumpkin" He loves me. Was wild but just randomly abandoned his family and came into the house to live with me. Hasn't left since.

Midge, Very very smart and also very friendly. He is the king.

Moses, Named as a joke, he is dumb but not as pronounced as Garfield, he is friendly.

Tuesday there was a monster storm here, over 10cm of rain in the morning, and massive flooding and damage all over. These were rescued from the church next door, where they were living in the drain, and it flooded out of course. Now dry, well fed and looking for new homes, and quite comfortable with me.

I was out with Clive in his pickup, and we left the dumpsite 9H30, with sun shining. 10 minutes later we were in a downpour that got heavier, then windier, then hail, with visibility down to under 50m. Van went from caked with mud from the tyres to the roof ( dumpsite is kind of wet from previous rail the weekend) to washed, rinsed, power washed and cleaned in the 1 hour it took to get back. Had to change clothes as well, wet through and caked with mud as well.  That afternoon I got these kittens delivered to me in a box, sopping wet and cold, so stopped at the vet and got kitten milk for them, and they are surviving fine, though the mother cat is missing.

Locally there were a lot of cars destroyed in flooding, and many places lost the roofs along with the flooding. Quite a few insurance claims going through, and I was lucky, no damage at all from it.

This is  Wren. I found him "purrrr-ched" in a silver pine tree  in the park. As you can imagine, he stood out like a sore thumb, so I took him in, fed him, cared for him, the whole deal.

Turns out he really had a knack for spotting which parts are genuine and which are chinesium fakes. He slept in TME boxes only  if ALL the parts were genuine.  :-DD

Micah Elizabeth Scott programs a GPU to recognize a cat.

Works remarkably well considering it's in a very early stage. The detection of other objects is far less reliable but tracking the cat is the main goal.

I wonder whether Micah's code can recognise cats, or just specifically Tuco?

He's quite distinctive; nothing else in the lab is tabby coloured. But would it recognise a ginger cat, or a white one?

My cat Rocky is white with tabby patches. Perhaps he'd be classified as a whole family of cats? And as for his brother Sebastian, I've no idea.

Just for perspective.... this is _not_ a cat.

Hmm, two ears, two eyes, mouth in the right place, four legs with feet on, a bushy tail. Why is this not a cat, please explain?
You misunderstood. This thread is about cats. He just told us this is "is _not_a", which is his cat. It's a peculiar name for a cat, but I'm not one to judge.

I have posted my cats before though this cat deserves his own post now.



Meet Garfield, dumb as a sack of rocks and no i am not just saying that. He is half bobcat and not quite done growing, currently he can stretch end to end 4 feet and when walking is at least 2 inches taller than any of my other cats.
His mouth is large enough that he could get it around a baseball, he is currently around 40 pounds and that linoleum tile he is sitting on is a sq foot, which he fills.
Luckily, very luckily, he is very friendly.

Then, from what you say, wouldn't this be a cat also?

The ferals from next door. Sadly none of them survived the cat flu they got. mother though is fine, if I can get her neutered I might keep her, even though she is a little twitchy, but is becoming used to people now. Getting her used to sleeping in a cat carrier to make the trip to the vet easier.

Hers certainly seem to be!!  She often lies in a position with a half twist in her back and her hind feet pointed so she could kick herself in the head.  She had actually UNtwisted a little before that first picture after she woke up when I turned the light on, while I ducked out to get the phone to take the pictures.  (And as an aside, would anyone twenty years ago have thought we'd be saying "I want to take a photo - let me grab my phone"?)

Cats don't have bones in their shoulders (Clavicles) but rubbery bands instead. That is why cats can jump from great heights and still land without injuries.

My cat runs on the "GNU Linux". From your screenshot I guess you're running Mac OS and I think (can't check right now) it uses BSD flavoure coreutils. But yeah, I'm only guessing what you have there  :P :D
Actually it's a ssh connection to a FreeBSD server. And FreeBSD uses BSD cat, not GNU ;)

Now, my apologies, I didn't intend to hijack the thread with this silly joke!

I may or may not be enticing my neighbour's cats to come over so I can pet them by conveniently placing food outside for them.

At my last flat, there was access to the roof and my two used to run around up there. One of them would disappear for hours on end, and wasn’t eating, but she wasn’t losing weight either: the only reason she seemed to come home was for a dump in the litter tray and increasingly rare cuddles. Some months later, in passing one of my neighbours mentioned she’d befriended an astonshingly well-groomed  “stray” cat, and wondered where it’d come from.

(Ours don’t wear collars but they are microchipped.)

Yey !!!!  .......  I want a 'Solder' cat too !!!!!   :) :) :)
We just have to teach American cats that it is NOT called "SODDERING" !!!!!!!   :)

My cat is not the sharpest tool in the shed, she'd probably inhale all the fumes or try to lick the solder iron.  She likes any kind of smoke.  Especially cigarettes. lol.

That's what the microwave is for. They tend to be much more docile after 10 minutes or so on full power.

We ALL know there are Dog LOVERS, and those that don't CARE one way or another......
However, there are MANY cat HATERS!!! and that's where take offence......
O.K. ....   A Cat won't (generally) chase a stick into the river & bring it back !!, or chase
a ball & bring it back,  (generally!!),  and I love dogs too & always had one !!!
However, being a lover of animals in 'general', I ALSO love my cats !!!
"YES" they are 'different'.... and for all imaginable reasons...
When they are just born & later, and they curl/cuddle against you, and learn to trust you.
Apart from 'Food', they absolutely love/trust/hug you, and fall asleep with total TRUST.
When you know a Cat long enough, you/they understand  each other and are at peace!!!
Sharing your bed/pillow, and purring.... "Damn dog is rolling in the horse-shit again" !!!!!
Love them both, but for different reasons xoxox

The Cat’s Diary

Day 983 of My Captivity

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. Bastards!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now ...

Because engineers do not usually work an 8 hour day. 

You can leave a cat at home for 16 hours and not have to let it outside.   You typically can't do that with dogs.

Today, only 26,000 remain.

Well, you can, if they have their own house and a yard to run in, and stuff to play with.  And some places (like SparkFun) nowadays let one bring their dogs to the workplace.

Cats, previously mentioned in the cat/dog person thread

White one is Squeaker, grey/white is Elwood, who once had a brother (not genetic) named Jake who quite a long time ago crossed the bridge.

 They are once again snuggling together. I previously posted that Squeaker had passed, well, last night I came home to find Elwood has passed away peacefully in his sleep. Knew something was up, the dogs were arrayed outside the room where his bed is. usually they all hang out together when no one is home.

 Thank you. He was technically my GF's cat, but he became my buddy about 10 years ago when she first moved here but still had to go back for weeks at a time to transition her work to the local office, so it was just me and the kitties.
