    Hi Fellow Catlovers. I’ve been lurking, enjoying your good humour, for a while. My resident cats are Harry (about 16; b&w dsh) and Sampson (nearly 14; marble tabby dsh). I can’t imagine life without cats. I’ve only ever shared my life with rescues.

    Welcome Elaine,
    Guess it’s Monday in Oz, while where I abide (Canada) it’s still Sunday.
    Glad that you elected to leave aside your lurking and introduce yourself.
    I’m the (not so) humble servant of the silver grey tabby in my avatar, Dorian Gray Esq., commonly known as Dorry.
    Hope to see you in the Café! 🙂

    Hi Elaine,

    Welcome to TDK. We like new members and we really like talking about and seeing kitties. I’m slave to Miss Gaea (9 yr. brown tabby Manx and matriarch), LilBit Guy (4 yr. OT) and Miss Moppet (4 yr. Gray on White lean long haired fluffiness girl). I hope we see your boys soon.

    Many thanks for the purry welcome! I’ll post baby photos when I can work out how to upload them.

    Hi Elaine, and Welcome!!
    I am mother to Thumbalina (swirled tabby), Bowtie (black beauty),Leona (dilute calico) Willow (tuxie) and Peso (tuxie). They range in age from 11 years to 4 months! Plus I have an 11 year old ginger boy outside named Maxwell.

    You will have to go to a photo sharing site (a lot of us use photobucket) since you can’t post pics on this site from your computer. Can’t wait to see them!

    Welcome to TDK Elaine. My cat Moonshadow(Shadz)is almost 17 so we both have senior kitties. She is a dappled black Tortie. She was an SPCA rescue.
    Looking forward to seeing your two.

    Photobucket doesn’t want to know me, tells me the usernames I’ve tried are not available. Ah well, I can enjoy looking at everyone else’s kitties! I was hoping I could post some pics of black cats that have been in my life on your upcoming black cat day. Meanwhile, Harry is classic tuxedo, very symmetrical markings. Sampson is super-huge and swirly-stripy brown. When I have a bit of free time I’ll try some more usernames and see if it will accept them.

    Elaine, it doesn’t have to be photobucket, you can try others out there too!

    If this works, this is Sampson with a mouse.

    I clicked on the question mark and saw the srsly cute pic of Sampson and “mouse.”

    As KZ noted there are lots of other sites that you might want to check out. Just google “free uploading sites”.

    Unfortunately I can’t help you further as I can’t access them due to my operating system/browser needing to be completely updated, and while new laptop is a plan I’m not quite there yet.

    Good luck!

    Very strange! All I got was the photo not found kitten. I’ve been back into Photobucket and have changed some settings – let’s see what this gives.

    Giving up on photobucket. I’ll try googling free uploading sites and see what I can find. But not today.

    Hi Elaine,

    Tinypic is a subsidiary of Photobucket, so when I could no longer access Photobucket, so Tinypic does not work for me either.

    As mentioned, I can’t access any upload site with way old browser.:-(

    But when you get a chance here’s a listing of “Top Upload Sites” from my research. NB: I can’t vouch for any of them and have not researched them thoroughly, so can’t take responsibility, as to whether they work or not. I am also not a techy.
    https://www.lifewire.com/free-image-hosting-sites-3486329
    http://www.ebizmba.com/articles/file-sharing-websites

    Just tried clicking on question mark and now got “library empty.”

    I can 100% vouch for fact the the image that I initially saw of Sampson shows one handsome brown tabby “monopolizing” laptop. LOL. 😉

    Hope this helps! KJ

    PS I’ve ordered you a coffee/or tea/or whatever from the Café. There’s a wormhole somewhere in your place which only your kits know of. That’s how refreshments, bevvies. etc “virtually” get delivered by the intrepid Café Staff and Agency kits. 😉 🙂

    Hi Elaine! I used to have an account with photobucket, which was very handy at several online forums and things. But sadly, they recently decided that everyone had to pay quite a lot for the privilege – which we can’t all do.

    I’ll be interested to hear if you manage to find something similar, but still useful.

    P.S. My avatar is my boy, Merlin, just past his ninth birthday. He says Hello to Harry and Sampson!

    Hi CatWScotia, Katzenjammer! I’ll give myself time to get over my software frustration and then try another service. I suspect that because I kept trying with TinyPic it decided I was a spammer. I’m glad someone got to see the pic of Sampson. Not that the kits need it – they know they are perfect without being told. My Avatar is my beautiful and much missed Polly, who died a couple of years ago just short of her 20th birthday. She had a nerve connection problem that meant she was blind, deaf and paralysed on that side of her face, but she was the feistiest and happiest of cats. Her way of giving me a mouse was to place it half-dead, very carefully, on my foot, and then to dance backwards to watch my delighted response.

    Miss Polly was one beautiful ladykit. Sorry that she left you, but she lived a long life in spite of her challenges. Surely this was due to your love and care.

    I totally get your ‘puter frustration, as with my browser being so old some sites work, others not. But I’m not quite ready to spring for a new one or at the very least a new operating system yet.

    And now the pic of Sampson with mouse has turned up 3 times! Scratches head. I’ve already given up on Photobucket and tinypic and signed up to Imgur (which is what I’d used to post my black cat pics), but I hadn’t tried posting Sampson again.
