    Bike and Cat Gallery: Photos of Your Velo-Loving Feline!

    Not sure of the proper place for this, so posting it into the General Discussion Forum:

    I have started a "Bike and Cat Gallery" on my weblog. Sure, that might seem ridiculous to some -- but if you love cats, you understand! If you'd like to share a photo of your cat posing with or on your bicycle, please submit it, or post it here! I am including one of mine below.

    Last time I had a bike indoors, one of the guys tried to eat the spokes. Since I don't have a digital camera, I will take a look at your site.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Might get more involvement if you asked a mod to move this to Foo. Seems I remember quite a few kitteh posts there.

    I have a set of them here:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/1430288...7602327324354/

    This is probably my favorite. Sabre, in the photo, passed away this past February. He was 16 years old and had been diabetic since he was 7.




    I've also got a few in this set:

    I particularly like this one. Obviously something attracted Smudgie's attention on the wall for me to get the same shots with two different bicycles!

    Machka, thanks for the photos! I've added them to the gallery.

    Nermal, my cats try to chew the cables, so they are not actually allowed to be alone with the bikes : )

    Rob P., thanks for the tip; I had not noticed Foo before.

    Hmmmm....

    Sorry, my cat is camera shy. I'm not kidding, she will do her best to not be photographed.

    OK, not exactly Velo loving, might be, I know he hates riding in cars, must try him out in the cat box strapped to the rack. Problem, sucker weight 25 lbs! Not showing in this image are the stunning blue eyes. I love this guy, he is the very definition of a Big. Wussy. Cat.

    Darn filter won't let me say the word i want.

    Hey, neat. One of my guys is named Spooky, too. The other is, ahem, Nermal.

    Nermal is not a Normal name for a cat. I'll consider that for future kitty cats. I had one for a while named Elvis (The Hillbilly Cat)

    Yep. Max and Rastus were celebrities on NZ. For Xmas, Max wore a Santa suit and Rastus wore a little helmet with reindeer antlers.
    They were both killed by a head-on collision back in '98.
