Adding avatar - first cat, Samantha

Post by jimkr2t on Tue Jun 22, 2010 1:44 pm

Hi again,

I'm trying out the "Update Profile" thing-a-ma-jig - want to put an avatar on my messages - went to an old photo of Samantha, my first cat, lounging on my ham radio stuff.

Let's see if it worked!

Well, it kind of worked - in a BIG way - it's filling one half of the screen. Hmmmm - guess it will take some time to figure out how to get it down to size.

Welcome to the new board! What a pretty cat! I resized the pic for you. I had no idea it would allow anything large like that - it said it had to be under 200 pixels, or some such number, but obviously it doesn't hold you to that size!

Samantha looks like she could have been related to Blue. She has a similarly serious expression. Sort of a "You-won't-mess-with-me-if-you-know-what's-good-for-you!" look. cat

The hubster and I were chatting just the other day about how variable cat facial expressions can be. Our Tux is a very frowny cat, and Zeke has a look that can be best described as the "Zoolander" look...


Ha! It worked! That gave me an opportunity to test out the image inserting function. That is from Imageshack. Seems to work fine.

She does resemble Blue, doesn't she? I always thought he was the handsomest of cats. However, he was the KING of the dirty look! He could give a dirty look better than any animal I've ever met. He often looked through the "tops of his eyes" at you, and it would frustrate me when I'd take his picture, because he looked so mean! And while he could be cranky, he was not mean - and he was beautiful, especially when he was relaxed out on his porch chair, watching the world go by. He looked so serene. We still refer to the front porch as Blue's Porch. I miss him so.

Hi bobcat and the rest of you!

Don't know what you did to resize the pic, but OK! that looks MUCH better.

Yeah, to those who've wondered, Sam does look like she might have been related to the Russian Blue line, but I'll never know. Sam was a stray off the streets with no background, but she was a devoted pet for 15 years, delighted in being held, loved to lapsit.

I figured I'd have her as my avatar for a while, then maybe something with Vic again.

Hey, jb, looking at your avatar - it looks like something from "Lost" - like the Dharma Initiative.......

Samantha was a real beauty! She looks so much like my sister's past cat Leon, who was a russian blue. I think your Samantha had a lot of that breed in her.

jim it IS a dharma logo....i can't remember which cat i get updates from it came from! i THINK it might have been Daisy the Curly Cat. Someone made it for them and they shared it to use not long before Lost had its finale.
you're the first person who recognized it Very Happy

Hi fluffandstuff and all the rest of the group - I'm still here! Read the site every day, but I've haven't added any comments or remarks - just a silent participant. As for Vic - he's doing well - no signs of any more seizures, eating about 2 1/2 to 3 cans of food a day, gives me two or three "intervals" of quiet, close companionship a day, but spends the night downstairs. We'll see what happens when the winter comes along - maybe he'll be back on the bed at night.

I am so glad you are here, even if its only to read most of the time. Very happy to hear Vic is so far seizure free and doing very well. Maybe when it gets cold this winter he will snuggle with you at night.

so glad to hear everything's going well. i understand about not getting the nightly sleeping partner. the Rescue Kitties sort of spread themselves around at night and i sometimes have just Toothpicky or Carter down at my feet.
is it cooler downstairs at your place?

Yeah, it's cooler downstairs, even though my place has AC. Another thing I've noticed - I have a half-basement - the other half is slab - no basement. The floor is cooler over the slab than over the basement. So that's where Vic sleeps, over the slab.

Actually, that's pretty lucky for you, Jim. My Bob still wants to sleep on my pillow, right above my head, even in the warmth of summer. I don't remember him doing that in past years, though I seem to notice that he's looking for a bit more attention since we got the two dogs, and since they sleep in bed, I'm guessing that's why Bobby has decided to warm my head even in the July heat. I love to hear that purring at night, but he's one warm pillow!

I can imagine it is Bobbi! The purring is great, lulls you to sleep, but all that warmth.................then again could Bob also be seeking a bit more of your heat for his older joints too?

It's nice to know you're thinking about Vic and me - I still read the forum each day, but I haven't posted much. I've been working with doctor's and nurses on a problem I've got - ok, not "serious type" stuff, but it's early-stage prostate cancer - trying to decide whether surgery or radiation is the way to go, so I've been busy.

Vic is his fussy self. Had to return a bunch of canned "Mixed Grill" that he USED to like but now walks away - got "Mariner's Choice" - hope he likes that more. He likes me when I fill the food dish, but other than that, he can be strange, doesn't like people, including me!

Take care everyone - Jim

Thinking of you and your fussy friend Vic. Rolling Eyes My Blue was a fussy friend too, and I guess Bobby is too, but I always worried more about Blue because he became so thin in his later life.

My husband is going through some colon cancer issues too, and probably not too serious either (fingers crossed), but still a worry - meeting with doctors and trying to get them to communicate with each other and with us too. It's challenging. Good luck to you, which ever way you decide to chase that damned cancer down.
