August Cat of the Month Wallpaper, TV Cat

August Cat of the Month Wallpaper for HD
It's a lazy post-dinner nap for TV Cat, on one of our increasingly hot and dry (for this area) afternoon. We tried to avoid disturbing TV.. and that didn't seem to be a problem. So TV Cat is our August Cat of the Month!  .. Select your wallpaper from the choices below (or if you are using an HD monitor you can just click on the picture above) ...

Wide/HD 16:9 Wide 16:10 Older 4:3 Phone Tablet


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. 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
Wide 16:10 - 1280x800, 1440×900, 1680x1050, 1920×1200
Old TV 4:3 - 640x480, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x1152 etc.
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" 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: Right-click and select "Save image as..." Remember where you saved the file. Then go to your desktop, right-click, select the "Desktop" tab, click "Browse" and navigate to the place where you saved this file. Select the file and click OK.

Tablets and Phones
Just pick what you have, a tablet or smart phone 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! :)

Hammie's Interrupted Nap

Hammie the orange bobtail cat has an interrupted nap
After dinner, with cat food still on the table (so to speak) what one really needs is a good nap. And Hamster the Cat was taking one... when I interrupted him to take a stupid photo. Hammie is mildly annoyed, but not enough to move!

Lucy in the Yard, with Cat Food

Lucy Cow Cat in the yard with cat food
Lucy the bobtail cow cat, in the feeding area of the yard...with cat food.... and PEX plumbing pipe, because I've had to do some plumbing work, lately. She doesn't associate with cats all that much, but Lucy decided to go out and see how the poor folk are living.  ...Lucy is a mostly-indoor cat, in case you couldn't tell.

She's been a little antsy... Fleas have been making Lucy kind of crazy. It seems like there isn't much left that's effective: we've been through Revolution and Advantage and all of that. It only sort of works, anymore. I hope they come up with something new and more effective, soon. In the meantime, we just try to cope... like Lucy tries to cope with the fact that there are other cats in the world, and she's not that big a fan of cats.
