October Cat of the Month Wallpaper - Hammie Bobtail

Even as seasons change, some things remain... The October Cat of the Month desktop (and mobile) wallpaper calendar presents the venerable Hammie the orange Bobtail cat. He's sneaking in a little nap in the last bit of sun.
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! :)

Feral Tabby Tom

Feral tabby tom cat, with interrupted bath
My photography interrupted a fur-cleaning session. This older tabby tom has been around the colonies a long time. Perhaps he's not so photogenic, but I thought he needed to be included in our online family. To me, he looks a little sad. At least he's well-fed.

In case you missed, it, The Feral Life 2016 Cat calendar is here!  We have two choices, as we have every year lately. The Lulu edition is the better deal - only because Zazzle's base printing costs are so high. Check them out...and give some as gifts! It helps feed the kitties. :)

Silver The Tabby

Silver the tabby cat photo
Silver, the tabby cat, we haven't had a photo of him for awhile, so here he is! Silver is the brother of muted tortie, Dora the Explorer, and a very quiet and somewhat shy guy. The only time I see him up close is at feeding time. He's one of the ones who will come right up to me to make sure he gets his share. But other than that, he's mostly never seen or heard.
