Awww, look, an adorable little Siamese feral kitten is our October Cat Of The Month free wallpaper ...and we now have Smartphone and Tablet versions...holy cow! Tell your friends the news, and enjoy this sweet baby all month, wherever you go!
Wide/HD 16:9 Wide 16:10 Older 4:3 Phone Tablet

Now for Tablets and Smart Phones!
Just pick what you have, a tablet or smart phone version... tap on the link above. When the image loads, tap & 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 it as the lock screen too! :)
NOTE: Because of the vertical aspect of tablets and phones, these versions don't have the handy calendar, but they do have the adorable kitten!

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.

Two Tabby Faces

Two little tabby faces - taking an after-dinner nap. They seem fairly contented for feral cats, don't they? Well, so far I've managed to keep them well-fed so there's that. It's often a minor miracle that I manage to do that month after month. I often wonder how I will pull that off, but then somehow I manage. I'm glad they're happy.

The free desktop wallpaper calendar for October will be published tomorrow morning, (or maybe late today) and here is an advanced surprise for regular readers: There will be a smart phone and a tablet version!  Those versions won't have the nice calendar because it just doesn't work with the vertical format (and the calendar would be hidden under app icons anyway) but I have a very pretty kitty for you!

How about this: If you are a friend of the wonderful cats, you can help me spread the word and get these pretty kitties in front of more people. If you are on Twitter or Facebook, can you post links to the wallpaper post for me? Or cat related forums, for that matter. Let's see if we can get sweet kitties the attention they deserve!  Be looking for the new wallpaper on Tuesday, and spread it around. :)

Thank you so much for being a part of our feral family.
