Here we see the Chameleon Cat (a native to the Clapton Pond area) in its natural environment. Whenever this clever animal senses danger or indeed has spent too long chasing flies amongst the tomato plants, he will quite convincingly pretent to fall fast asleep and adopt the pattern of his environment. This astonishingly effective evolutionary defense mechanism can only be broken by opening a pre-packed sachet of jellied chicken cubettes or dangling a tape measure in front of his face.

Proof that Snagarelli is a lean, mean killing machine.
He's not normally a hunting kinda cat, but now that Dexy has upped and left, Snags has taken over the cold blooded killin' round these parts.
He ain't about to let no mouse come in his territory and live to tell the story.

Jim got a new collar. He's toughened up a whole lot since he got it. Doesn't whine at everyone all the time apparently.
I think he has more self respect now.

Dexy is our cat (front of shot), but check out his look alike, he's a big fluff bag too. Don't know much about this new cat on the block yet, but hopefully we will do.
Then after a bit Chicken comes along to investigate.
After a while all three just chill together, lying down in the sun etc.
To be honest I think they are all waiting for the pool to be filled, they are all desperate for a little paddle, this heat must be a difficult time if you are covered head to toe in furr!!

Cat Party Admin are pleased to announce that this month's 'Top Cat' competition is now OPEN!!!
Belle - our winner from last month has taken on the task of curating the top posts from May ... we hear that she had a tough time compiling her top ten as Drools continually slobbered all over the lists being drawn up.
Belle has sent us in this photo of Drools doing his thing with the prize winning cup.
The winner of this month's competition will also receive a 'Top Cat' mug, however this will be the last one that we award (for now)...
We have decided that this will be the last Top Cat Post of the Month competition for a little while now .... perhaps the last ever.
We've had a meeting at CP HQ and have decided that the comp has become a little stale.
We're going to take a summer break and think up some new ideas and new ways of exploring cat-based blog excitement.
(If anyone has any suggestions or ideas then please post them in the comments section of this post.)
SO ... for the last time until further notice:
Please glance your eyes to the right hand side to see which posts (and which furry beasts) made the grade.
Spread the word, obey the rules, and please ... keep it furry

Was walking home in the early hours of Sunday morning through Echo Park when I happened upon these four weirdos (they're cats, I assure you). Every time I tried to get near for a photo, they'd run off up towards that door, then come straight back to exactly the same spots once I backed away. Their glowing eyes kind of freaked me out a bit. A little further on I found this cool bit of art too. It was all a bit strange.

This is my first post, so I guess introductions are in order...
Likes: Anything edible (really...he'll eat anything), belly rubs, sleeping on things he's been told not to sleep on, acting like a Mafia don and defending his turf, gazing out of windows.
Dislikes: People knocking on the front door, pollen (he gets hayfever), when younger cats question his authority.
Dislikes: Heights, most other cats, when you leave a brother hanging, shoes...and generally anything slightly loud or scary.

this beast of a tom cat frequently finds himself in my garden, he is clearly totally in love with purrsephone but she's not having any of it. one night, purrsephone was sitting (inside) at the patio doors, yowling like mad. ginge was sitting there gazing at her, completely besotted. purrsephone obviously wasn't happy, so i threw a glass of water over him. i completely drenched him and felt SO guilty, but he hastily left our garden. the next evening, as I was leaving my house, he appeared to have forgiven me and after a little sesh of chinny-chin-chin, whilst i fumbled in my bag for my camera, he sauntered off.
My friend lives on a houseboat at the incredible Downings Moorings, and I saw a few fine feline inhabitants....

I went to France last week and encountered this furry beast. After calling him "Willy" for several days in my loudest English accent I was informed by his owner that his name was actually Woody. Un faux-pas...
He had a tendency to drool (a lot) if over excited and also spent a large portion of each evening busting in and out of my tent despite efforts to blockade him out in the pursuit of a whole nights sleep.
Tents are not cat proof.
