August Cat of the Month Wallpaper Tabby in the Wild

Free Cat Desktop Wallpaper - right click and select save as or choose from the links below
A feral tabby cat, in the wild... kind of suspicious of me; kind of hoping I brought food! This pretty tabby is our cat of the month for August, and The combination of colors and shadows is what does it. The version above is HDTV proportioned, or if you have a Mac or MS Surface (both are mostly 16x10 ratio) you can find your version below...
Wide/HD 16:9 Wide 16:10 TV 4:3 Mobile Devices


For Desktop and laptop computers:
Use the links above to pick the size ratio that matches your monitor. Now, I know that many people don't know what display size they have on their monitor - it's okay. The first two are wide monitors. If you have a wide monitor and one image doesn't look quite right, try the other one. The third version is for the older analog tv type displays, including flat panel displays that mimic them with that squarish ratio. We still have a few of them.

Some examples of aspect ratios:
Wide/HD/16:9 - 1024×576, 1152×648, 1280×720, 1366x768, 1600×900, 1920×1080, 2560×1440 - HDTV
Wide 16:10 - 1280x800, 1440×900, 1680x1050, 1920×1200 - Macbooks,  iMacs + MS Surface etc
TV 4:3 - 640x480, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x1152 etc. - older monitors and laptops, mostly
The size shown in italics above is the actual image size that I've linked to, but as long as you pick the right ratio it will look GREAT on your monitor using "Stretch" or "Fit to screen" as your option when you set an image as your wallpaper.

Click on the link to the image of your choice to see the full size version, then right-click on it (one-button Macs, use CONTROL-Click).and select "Set as Desktop Background".(Firefox) / "Set As Background" (Explorer) - This also saves the image to your computer. Using Firefox, it will usually look best if you use the options "Stretch" or "Fit" and a black background, like this:
Free Cat Desktop Wallpaper - right click and select save as or choose from the links below

The easy right-click desktop wallpaper method works with Safari, Explorer and Firefox. Many versions of the Chrome browser make it a little harder, plus there is weirdness going on with Windows 10: Right-click and select "Save image as..." Remember where you saved the file. Then go to your desktop, right-click, select the "Desktop" or "Personalize" tab/option, click "Browse" and navigate to the place where you saved this file. Select the file and click OK.

Tablets and Phones
Pick the "Mobile" version... tap on the link above. When the image loads, tap and hold on the image until the menu pops up. Select "Save," "Save to camera roll" or "Save to library."  Once you have the image, go to your Settings app, select "Wallpaper" and choose new wallpaper from your photo library. That's it! Set your Cat Of The Month as  your lock lock screen too! :) There's no calendar on the mobile version, by the way. It just doesn't look right in that vertical aspect ratio. Other than that, it's the same.


Any problems or questions? Leave a comment and we'll see if we can work it out. Or visit me on Twitter or Facebook.

Keeping an eye on me

Just a tabby tux feral tom cat, not ready to run away just yet - but definitely keeping an eye on me. Whenever I take photos, several of the kitties get suspicious, and some run away. I don't know what they think I'm doing. Probably they have no idea but they aren't taking any chances... just in case.
