Time For A Change Maybe?????

As everyone knows I've been using my black cat crystal gazing kitty avatar for a LONG time...in fact it's been my avatar everywhere I am in all places ever since I learned how to use computers some five years ago....and yes, I might go back to it here....but I thought as a slight change would use my REAL cat Pyewacket as an avatar..even if only temporary...if I hear a lot of protests I'll go back to my crystal gazing black cat one...but just needed a change. It was my cat Pyewacket who inspired me to have as my user name just about everywhere even long before I had my own computer and needed a user name and image...but until now always used that crystal gazing kitty one....so thought...heck...why not use my REAL cat Pyewacket as an avatar..at least for now. Have you ever decided to change your avatar image....on a whim?? Do you like my new one or would you rather see that crystal gazing black kitty one? I'm sure this will go to my Pyewacket's head...he's spoiled already....so now I just KNOW he's going to prance around all smug

I think the "real" Pyewacket is beautiful. I have always loved the name since I saw the movie Bell, Book and Candle. I sometime think of changing my Schatzie avatar to one of my other pet's photo but knowing what a prima dona she is I would have hell to pay.

Pyewacket is a beauty, If you just add white whiskers to him he could pass for our kitty Eb. Why not use a new avatar for awhile, I've been thinking about it myself.We have 17 Llamas and I thought I might give some of the others, who allowed their pictures to be taken a chance to represent me.

savypat, he's pretty, but definitely not happy with the picture taking procedure. He has similar markings to my Romanov sheep, though. My Llamas are all white. I don't have any coloured ones.

Here is a pic of 2 Romanov Ewe Lambs. Maybe I will look through my pics and give some of them a debut in my avatar.

I love your gypsy avatar too As for keeping the name Pyewacket straight....I do get confused sometimes. I use the user name pyewacket just about everywhere, but I found out that it actually IS a very common user name, so sometimes I have to come up with variations of the spelling..so sometimes I go on a site and have to remember...uh, who am I here...

Nope that avatar was from a photo on a book cover called "Your Magical Cat"---I scanned it, and then cropped it. But as you can see my real Pyewacket looks a lot like the other kitty--give your kitties a hug too

HI Pye: OH cool!! Yeah they really do look a lot alike maybe they just are kindred "spirit's"...(G)!! I have a black cat too as you know but they all differ from each other, each one shows its own personality in their faces you know? But yeah Pyewacket and the crystal cat sure do look a lot alike... thanks for the hugs for my kitty's (G)!!

Yeah, I've thought about it because I like cariety. I think people get to know you and recognize your profile as part of your identity though through your avatar. That's why I don't know if it's a good idea to change it unless I get really popular or something ha. It's definitely different than facebook in that way.

What a beautiful cat!! I also use our cat, Morgana, in my avatar. I decorate her pic for the holidays and it's really fun to look at. I have other avatars I'd like to use but I've kind of gotten used to seeing her here. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Morgana's a beauty, she reminds me of Babette, my very, very first kitty I had gotten when I was only five and a half years old

The real Pyewacket is a very beautiful cat - and it's nice to see him as your avatar! It's good to have a change every now and then, too - so I'm sure everyone will enjoy seeing your darling boy (and he'll enjoy seeing himself!)

Mmmmm...I think using a kitty avatar is more in keeping with my user name. The name Pyewacket had always been associated with cats..I do have a pic of me though on my profile page in the photo section

Sure change will make us and mold us in different way and it is necessary also for us and i have been changed several times and i can guess that your picture here long time ago so i think your going to change the picture as soon as possible.

I change mine from time to time. In fact, I changed my gather one today. I try to keep it even though, use pictures of both my cats evenly. I like your new avatar, not problem with giving our kitties the computer time they deserve.

I was thinking if I use Ashley's here and Carlye there maybe they will both be okay, equal treatment and all that, but perhaps they will both be jealous, who really knows the mind of a cat. lol.

Awwwww, he looks just like my "Bear". Big, big eyes, but a lovey dovey attitude. I can see the 'love' in his eyes.

Not only does he have love in his eyes, but is a real attention grabber...he "demands" his attention all the time with me

Our 2 boys are so used to someone being home most of the time, that when we are both away, even if only for a few hours, they get all excited when we return home and put on a show for us. They will chase each other madly around the house, and it will end in a playful battle. Interestingly enough, George, the white cat, the smaller one, always wins. The big Teddy "Bear", Mr. Lovey dovey, is more of a lover than a fighter.

I do change my avatar image sometimes. I usually only change it if the mood strikes me, be not very often. I might change mine in the future, but am happy with the one I have now. I also usually use the same icon, no matter what site I am on. also, I like the new avatar you have.

Change is VERY important, it's part of our growth no matter how BIG or SMALL. Even if it's as simple as changing an avatar picture. When you're finished changing, you're finished for good.

You just let that pretty cat prance, dear. I like both your avatars. A change once in a while is a good thing. I was thinking of changing mine too but couldn't decide on a good one to use and was afraid people might feel they had lost track of me if I did. I sometimes become confused with people make changes. Age? Not sure. I haven't in your case however.

I get confused sometimes too when people are always changing their avatars..even worse is when I see a familiar avatar thinking it's my friend here, but it's a different user name....they just happened to be using the same avatar

It doesn't matter, you can use any avatar you want, don't care about others' opinons. I have no avatar at all, so I've never worried about changing avatar.

Hi pye. I changed my avatar many times when I was new to mylot. I think it was maybe 12 times, or more, in a 5 month time period! I was changing it so much, I could never find one I was happy with. It's hard to believe I've been using my current one for almost 2 years now. It's definitely become my trademark on here. Though it is getting time for a change... It'll be hard for me to get used to the real pyewacket in your avatar as I'm accustomed to seeing the crystal gazing kitty. But the real pye is a cutie and you should be proud to display him in your avatar.

I like the avatar of the real Pyewacket. And I'm sure Pyewacket refers it too. All this time there has probably been mumbling about an imposter representing the sweet kitty. And now the fraud is gone, and Pyewacket can rejoice! And I like the new avatar too. And so does Sherlock.
