    I figured the GD portion of Radicons could use a thread dedicated to pictures of our furry friends. If it doesn't belong here, please move to the appropriate forum. Thanks.

    Anyway, I own 2 cats (both males). The black one is Smush and the tiger is named Pete Rock or "Petey" for short.

    Cats are cool. And Pete Rock made some awesome records...

    Sadly my cat is no longer with us, or I'd post pics. But then I'm not a Radicon either, I just check out the work that gets done, so I don't think I qualify for this thread really... but it had an intriguing title :)

    Okay, I'll bite. We're internet peoples here... we all love our cats. :) 

    We have two rather large furballs, who go by various nicknames (like "Scar-nose" and "Clawmaster", which should give you an idea of how they get along...)

    This is Rousseau, adopted literally from an alley about 10 years ago. I think he looks like some kind of scheming supervillain in this picture.

    In this picture, not so much. :D  His favourite perch on the old sofa...
    [​IMG]

    Our newer adoptee Ghibli. He's about 3 years old and 20lbs+, but he lacks both claws and diplomacy when dealing with Rousseau, counting on his girth to give him an edge. He has a new scratch on his nose every week... he's kind of a jerk (though a cute one).
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And in keeping with the theme of the forum...

    KO Predaking beats a hasty retreat...

    Soundwave waits for his moment to strike...

    Devastator getting stalked. Rousseau has a habit of sneaking into my photoshoots. I've often posted pics, to notice later that there's a tuft of fur creeping in from off-camera.

    My question to Radicons who own cats (especially more than one)... how do you keep from getting fur in your paint? :)

    My cat is too cute, he'd wreck all your $&it and then you'd all be sending me bills for new monitors etc etc. No way can I swing that, not when I'm saving up for TF2 toys now. ;) 

    (I have a folder of him on my myspace page though if you're bored enough to go look for it!)

    EDIT - Although this guy is super cute too, wowzers Smog!

    Awww... sweet! Great name. Cats without tails always look sort of like bunnies to me. Without a tail, is he sort of clumsy? Ghibli has a really short tail relative to his body, and I've never seen a cat as awkward as he is... though that might just be his oversized paws and enormous weight.

    Wow! He looks like a lion, especially in that first picture. What a colour! Why is he a $4000 cat? Special breed?

    Link! Link!

    Yeah, he's an adorable gigantic teddy bear, that one.

    My only complaint is that he's always picking fights with my older cat , and he never quite gets the message that a fat, dopey, clawless, coddled, apartment-raised cat is not a match for a seasoned killer alley cat with a pawful of hurt.

    Other than that though, he's about the goofiest, most lovable cat I've ever met. :) 

    Wow... he's fluffy! My cats lie around on their backs just like that. Sometimes I have to poke them just to make sure, y'know... :redface2: 

    Ever notice that there are about 100 times more cat pictures online than dog pictures? I'm convinced it's because all the dog owners are outside doing stuff and playing catch with their dogs or whatever, while all the lazy cat people are indoors, sitting on their asses, posting on web forums.

    Or customizing toy robots. ;)

    The color they call him is "Buff"
    Why $4000, he got a urinary blockage due to crystals.
    2 weeks in the vet, followed by emergency surgery.
    I've never spent that much on an animal in my life & proably never will again.
    I use to think he was my suck, turns out I'm his.
    I was a wreck for 2 weeks, without him.

    OMG! The exact same thing happened to Rousseau several years back. He was acting weird, and he suddenly had what appeared to be some kind of seizure. We were terrified, and rushed him to the nearest vet... who happened to be the cat specialist whose clinic was literally next door! She's notoriously expensive, but under the circumstances, we didn't think about it.

    Turned out to be the urinary blockage thing due to the cheap food we were giving him. Fortunately, with some medicine he was able to pass the crystals, and was home after an overnight stay... only cost us $500 in the end.

    That cost us $500... being the eternal pragmatist, I always said that I could budget $100 a year for a cat. When I got Rousseau home, I looked him in the eye and told him he wasn't allowed to get sick again for at least 5 more years! :) 

    But 4 grand?? Hearing your story, I guess we got off easy!!

    That is one adorable little troublemaker you got there! Is he brown, or is that just the light in the picture?

    Sorry guys, don't mean to hog the thread, but here are some face shots of Quincy. He's about 120 pounds!

    This is him priming his fusion cannon eyes for some spot welding I needed done!

    Quincy, forever my source of amusement!

    Turboedguy I agree with Smog, your little buddy looks like a holy terror hiding behind the cuteness!:cool: 

    And Smog I love Ghibli, little butterball!

    Actually, shes gray and white. Shes bothered by the flash, so every time I took a shot with it on, I would get her squinting.


    Sucks to hear about big vet bills, I know when my cat had an infection in her jaw, the $200 i spent on X-rays and antibiotics was no fun to put down, but now that sounds like chump change...

    Not really my cat, she belongs to my roommate's girlfriend. She was left with us when she moved down to California for culinary school and couldn't find an apartment that allowed pets.

    But, here's Shortcake & Grimlock-

    I do hope to get a cat of my own sometime.

    It appears that way. I was actually more of a dog lover before getting my first cat. I guess it's the low maintenance factor.
