August Desktop Wallpaper Cat - Willemina, Remembrance

Free Desktop Wallpaper Feral Cat Of The Month. Click for large size, then right click to set as desktop
We have followed so many feral cats throughout their lives - from kittenhood until the very end, including this one. Willemina looked so much like her late father, Willem DeKooning. He was a Maine Coonish kitty with an adorable personality and not too much brains. We'd say the same of Willemina, and now she is the August Cat of the Month for your free desktop wallpaper calendar.

The above version is for WIDE screens. It's native size 1920 by 1080 to cover cinema displays. This size also fits 1600x900, 1366x768 - up or down in size quite a bit... basically any wide monitor size. You should pick your wallpaper based on the aspect ratio, and this one is for all the wider sizes. Now, older "wide" monitors like mine will leave a little bar at the top and bottom (mine is 1680x1050, it's an older "wide" resolution) but it will look fine - especially if you change your desktop background color to black.

We haven't forgotten the older 4:3 "TV" ratio screens either! My sister still has that, at 1280x1024 or 1024 by 768. I have an old laptop that uses this ratio, too! The one below is that standard ratio (not wide) and will work on anything from 640x480 on up!

SIMPLE WALLPAPER HOW-TO: Click on 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:

The latest 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.

Willem DeKooning died a few years ago of immune mediated hemolytic anemia when he was 7 years old. His daughter, Willemina, passed away last week after fighting a long battle with cancer. She was 10.
