Cat Photos Galore
Do the baby pictures in your brag book all show fur, whiskers, four legs and a tail? Would the guys at the water cooler rather talk about Monday Night Football than hear your latest story about your kitten, or are your neighbors starting to call you a "crazy cat lady?" Do you long for a community where you can share your photos and stories about your cats and gaze at page after page of sumptious feline pictures? We've a huge collection of photo galleries here: kittens, senior cats, funny cats, special needs cats; just about every kind of cat pictures you'd want to see.
The popularity of YouTube videos has spilled over to my site, and I have hand-selected what I consider the best videos to showcase here. Some are educational and some are strictly for fun. Pictured here is Sparta, from the most popular YouTube video yet, the Mean Kitty Video.
In addition to YouTube Videos, you'll find educational videos about cats, produced by About.com.

Those cat lovers who actively participate in the About.com Cats Forum are particular assets.
