Cats were very manly in ancient Egypt. Nothing wrong with that.

They even buried dead kitties with the dead rich men.

Cats are meant to be catly, not manly  ;D ;D.  And.....they excel at that.  In fact all cats are far more catly than many men are manly. 8)

Maybe they buried dead rich men with their kitties to ensure the cats were sufficiently provided with cat food in the future. Someone had to buy it for them in the afterlife.
Guys! They're not intercoursing. It's just an unfortunate angle.

There are no cat burglars.  Cats only take what is rightfully theirs  ;D.  Burglars are nasty humans who steal from others.

Well, someone needed to feed the cats.  You don't think... *gasp* ...that the cats got their OWN food, do you?!?!?

One kitty, a beautiful Snowshoe Siamese male, named Maximilian. :)

He might be cross-eyed, but he's gorgeous!  :laugh:
A Siamese genetic flaw, but, thanks!  I love my boy! :)

I'm also glad to see he's a "normal" Siamese, with a proper cat's face and ears, as the breed was originally. I love cats, but I draw the line at the extreme modern type of Siamese, with huge pointed ears, and a triangular head that makes the poor cat look like an alien.

The same goes for the poor Persians who've been bred to have no muzzle at all. Thank goodness there's a growing backlash against this sort of breeding, which spoils the look of the cat, and causes many physical problems.
I agree.  As someone who has had original "apple heads" all my life, I have never been a fan of modern Siamese.  Now, our original breed has been renamed "Thai".  Personally, I think it should be the other way around!     

All these kitties are beautiful!  I particularly like the tabby who's playing shy.  Very cute!  ;D

BTW, is it common for Polocks with identity issues to wish other Christians dead?

I wouldn't call individuals who find pleasure in shooting domestic cats "other Christians".

My wife's cat (I reckon mine by de facto) goes crazy over the little laser pointer.  When your cat sees the light, does it make little clicking sounds?  Ours does.  I've even seen youtube vids where it seems most cats make that funny little noise.
