Hi Draco, Apologies for my rudeness by starting introducing myself and then disappearing for a week! I was distracted by work and didn't get the time to come back to the forum. Anyway the CarCat name is one I invented rather than an actual cat and in fact I don't have a cat but we do have lots of cats round where I live in London that pass through the garden on whatever is the latest mission. Anyway, there are two new cats, I think they're related (mum and daughter?) which pass through and also very happy to use the sunny parts of the garden for a bit of a nap. They're both  very friendly but a bit nervous if you move quickly or unexpectedly and they both love playing or rolling around on the flag stones.

The mum is absolutely gorgeous, has the most amazing eyes and fantastic thick silky fur and a very nice comfy well kept cat shape. I only have an image of the youngster for now  which I've uploaded. Can you tell me anything about this cat from the pictures? When I see the mum next time I'll post her pictures. Anyway, I'll get a picture of the mum in due course and post that too.

Hi Draco,

I've been away for the kids' half term break but back in sunny London now. You asked about the CarCat name. Its a nickname for a product I've created  comprising decal images of cats which are stuck to the rear windscreen of a car next to the wiper and the latter is used to make the cat's tail wag. The device is called a Wiperwagger and our range includes tail wagging animal and waving people wiperwaggers. Our cats include a grey/black cat and a rather bright ginger cat for now and I've uploaded an image of the grey cat as my avatar for you to see. I'd love to ask you (and any other forum members) what you think of them. I'd be grateful for any feedback you can offer, both positive and negative, about my CarCat. 

Thank you,

Regards

Angus

Now it's my turn to apologize for not responding! The kitties in the photos are beautiful! I am not very good with color patterns but I am sure someone can chime in!

I would love to see those decals. I am sure there may be some buyers here

You should go to forums-then social groups-then tabbies and join your kitty in with the other tabbies

Welcome, what a pretty tabby.

 

I absolutely love that product idea! Unfortunately I do not have a rear wiper on my car or I'd definitely want one!

Thanks FishynFlash,

I haven't seen the mother tabby recently - she's just gorgeous. Soon as I get a photo I'll go to the special Tabbie Forum. Thanks very much for the advice.

Hi Draco, I am really glad you like the avatar. If You'd like me to send you a sample PM me. If you are happy to test it and report back what you think - good and bad - I'd be really pleased.

Hi Catspaw66, Thanks for the feedback on the Tabby. FishynFlash suggested I post to the special forum for tabbies but I'm going to wait until I get a picture of the mother (or at least I think she is) because she is just gorgeous.

Hi Katlover4life. Thanks for your very kind feedback. And as for the Tabby. Wait until I upload an image of the mother. I think she knows I want her for a photo shoot and is playing hard to get - hasn't been in the garden for ages.

Hi _-aj-_, That's an interesting tag.

Thank you so much. I am a newcomer to forums and really enjoying the CatSite. People have been so welcoming.

Hi FishynFlash,

I have been unable to access TheCatSite for two weeks using Google Chrome. Not sure why but today I tried IE which works fine so I can post again. I have managed to get some fab pictures of the adult tabby so I'll put them on the tabby forum for your specialists. I assume I can post there despite being kitten status?

Thanks

CatCat

Hi All,

This is the mummy cat that I've been harping on about in my thread. Is there something in the pattern shapes and her fur thickness which makes her an unusually good-looking tabby. Are there 'patternologists' in the forum who can tell me a bit more?

Hi Draco - did you get my last message about the subject matter of the avatar image?

hi there,

I've posted some more images including what I think is the mum or the more adult of the two tabbies that visit the garden for a plate of milk each day. Is this/are these both 'classic' pattern tabby's or something a bit more unusual. In which case what's the difference from classic tabby? I think they are just the most beautiful tabbies even if they are not too friendly even with the milk offerings . Has anyone got a potential challenger for the most gorgeous tabby pattern award?

Regards
