This thread is where you guys post pictures of your cat(s) with your favorite puzzles. I'll start. This is Bandit, my kitten. He is holding my Pochmann Teraminx. I figured I'd start this thread because the internet is all about cats, so why not start it here?

Who made this thread "official", the cat? Or is it an unofficial thread with official/unofficial pictures of official cats? :lol:

All forums should have an official cat thread!! This is a marvellous opportunity!

I have 3 cats - Zanzibar (on lap), Zachary (chasing things in kitchen) and Zebedee (unconscious next to me).

This photo is one of my favourites - Zebedee had solved 2 twisties and 2 wooden puzzles and had collapsed with exhaustion!!!
It's a bit pornographic but puzzles can be gratuitous like that!! :lol: :lol:

Isn't a guinea pig like 98% the same dna as a cat? :D

People don't appreciate how much DNA is shared among species. About 90% of cat's genes are homologous with human genes. See http://genome.cshlp.org/content/17/11/1675.full for the details of this number.

I'll have to take some with Maurice, Ludwig and Shirley and the puzzles.

Best thread ever.

I don't have a cat, officially. My wife has one and each of my daughters has one. So being the patriarch, all the cats are mine.

Mimi is my younger daughter's cat, and is the most awesome cat in the world. She became especially cuddly after we rescued her from near drowning. She was already our cat, but her appreciation for us significantly changed after that event.

Aslan is my older daughter's cat. She loves him to pieces and would probably take a year off school if he died.

Bundle is my wife's cat. She is stuck-up, a midget, and cuddling happens purely on her terms. If she doesn't like you, she bites you. The other two don't like her.

I knew you had a cat, rline, because in your channel trailer Mimi runs away when you smash the cube. So I knew at least three of us had cats. Kattenvriendin's cats are her avatar, so that's the other one.

Just a thought, but maybe we could ask Sandy to change the site header to "TwistyCats", just for one day? :D

I have renamed this the official PETS thread, so that everyone can share their pets that aren't cats.

Sorry, but for that you'll need to go back to Dave and get formal permission, since:

You mean she insisted you include the puzzle in this picture of your cat, or vice versa?

OK, maybe playing is a bit strong, maybe sniffing is more accurate.
