    Welcome all to the Sunday Cat!, a weekly gathering of image makers on a subject of mutual interest, our feline friends. The Sunday Cat! has appeared each Sunday, except for a brief interruption in September, 2016, since Anton AK started the thread at DPReview on 23 September 2007. Successive thread managers have been John King, Warriormouse, Robert J, Coldamus, Robert J again (with an assist by StanTsui) and since September 2016, former lurker, me. With the announced shuttering of DPReview (which did not happen), the last Sunday Cat! there was hosted on 2 April 2023. After taking a leap of faith, the Sunday Cat! landed here at its new home on 9 April 2023 with this week marking its 52nd episode at DPRevived. 😄

    Magical Kitty of the Week!

    Z!

    Kitty past, Zoey or Zak, bringing a little of that magic that black cats seem to possess, but not black magic. ;)

    As said by Warriormouse, "Photos can be more than just art, they can be memories, so come share your picture and stories of your feline companions with us."

    “Official” posting time is every Sunday at 0000 UTC. Because this is Saturday afternoon for me, posting time seems to often vary to accommodate my schedule. :) I'll try to post a message if I know I will be very late. Anyone anxious to start the new week is free to do so. But if you do, please PM me so I don’t accidentally double post.

    Come one, come all! All cats, all cameras welcome. Images from any time, any place. Let the Sunday Cat! be a refuge where nice comments abound and only constructive criticism is given when it's requested.

    The Sunday Cat! is now open for business. :D

    Last week's purrs, #858 / DPRv #51

    Thread Manager's Corner:
    As I knew that the 52nd episode of the Sunday Cat! here at DPRv was coming up I spent a little time looking back at DPR as well as looking at the other options that sprung up when its existence was threatened. I cannot know for sure but I think the DPR audience got fragmented when the closure was announced and not everyone returned there. Some of the sites that were thrown up last year are no longer there, and others seem moribund. The Sunday Cat! could go back to DPR but I think that here with the Threads display option, which seems to be a popular choice, exposure here is as good or better than it would be at DPR. And a search on Google finds the Sunday Cat! at DPRv easily, right after the Com-Pac Sunday Cat sailboats. ;) So the Sunday Cat! will purr on at DPRv / The Photo. :D

    Though small in size, the imprint they make on our lives is huge.

    Gone for years now but never forgotten. Otis. Like cats before or since unforgettable.
    He bonded with my wife not so much me. I still have scars.

    Otis looks like a sweet boy in that photo. I know that kitty eye color can change with the light but here his pale green eyes invite you to look more closely where you see the faint hint of copper as well. Maybe the light. Maybe not.

    KitKat always looks so serious but here there is intensity on top of it. A classic image. It makes you want to know what resides outside the frame that has grabbed her interest.

    The day slipped away from me but better late than never, yesterday April 4 was the designated birthday for one of my kitties who crossed the Rainbow Bridge back in 2017, just shy of her 17th "birthday". Peaches was probably the most beautiful cat I will ever have.

    Her tricolored tail gives it away that she is not an all white cat.

    As does the orange fur on the back of her head. :)
