This user-submitted post comes from Ryan. I absolutely love the name he gave his cat, Icarus, and his reasoning behind it. I can relate because my cats used to be fetchers and climbers in their younger years!
Icarus was adopted a few months ago from a PetsMart in Sacramento. He is so named because the first thing he did upon being let out of his box was attempt to climb onto the stove, ascending to a dangerous height like his Greek namesake.
He plays fetch and is fond of dropping his toy on my face several times a day.
I like this picture because even though (or because) it’s blurry, I look happy, and I am wearing my best shirt.
This man-cat combo is Harry (human) and Framboise* (cat – although, really, that seems kind of obvious…)
Harry’s fiance sent in these photos. She says Framboise is the “other love” of Harry’s life. Framboise is a Siamese cross, and “she is French, he is English. We moved to France for his job; he is a professional rugby player and signed for a French team, then having moved to France he adopted a tiny kitten who took over his heart!” All I can say is, I hope the other members of the rugby team send in photos of themselves with their cats.
*Is this not the best cat name? I gave my cats people-style names, but this is so cute and charming, and appropriate for a French cat. I believe it translates to “raspberry.”
I managed to capture these two at rest the other day. This is my husband and cat, Tim and Charley. They’ve been good friends for a long time now.
This is my neighbor, Joe, and his cats Skunk (the black and white cat, obviously) and Mitsy (the polydactyl tabby). I always say Joe lives in the house of extreme cuteness due to his two adorable cats, plus two super adorable kids, and a sweet, cute dog (not to mention his lovely wife).
James submitted these photos of himself & his cat Noodles to the Men and Cats Facebook Group. Love the triptych!
