March Cat of the Month Wallpaper: Old One-Eye

March Cat of the Month wallpaper- click image, right click, and save as desktop wallpaper
Our special boy for March Cat of the Month is Old One-Eye, an aging resident of the feral colony. One-Eye hasn't been feeling well lately and I don't know how much longer he will be with us, so this is the time to enjoy and appreciate him.
The wallpaper above is for HD desktops, but you can choose your own best fit below. You should pick your wallpaper based on the kind of device it's for, or your monitor's aspect ratio, not specific sizes. Everything can be stretched of squeezed to fit but it's important to have the right ratio so it won't look weird when that happens.

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

I just took this photo today, but like last month, the weather doesn't seem to fit! Our weather has been... weird, lately.

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! :)

Tortie Cat Face, Up Close

Beautiful old tortie feral cat, up close picture of her face
Beautiful, shy Old Tortie cat, a long-time fixture among the local feral cats. She paused momentarily before running away, so I captured this photo. She's pretty old for a feral cat - I'm not sure how old but older than one would expect. She's still beautiful, though ...at least to me.

Another Nap Interrupted, Up Close

Gray tuxedo Bob Cat, up close
Bob the gray bobtail tuxedo cat has yet another nap interrupted. The sun felt warm and I was a lot closer, this time. Even though Bob has been a feral cat all of his life, he isn't really afraid of me. He might be slightly annoyed, however.

Bob is at his cutest when he stands up as tall as he can to beg for food. I wish I could get a picture of that but it only happens when I'm feeding, and my hands are kind of busy at that time. You'll just have to take my word that it's adorable.
