June Desktop Calendar Hiding Little Feral Kitten

Desktop Feral Cat Of The Month. Click for large size, then right click to set as desktop
A little Siamese-ish feral kitten is shy after being captured. He loves people, really, but the world is so new to him! His expression reminds us all of what this rescue is about. Our June Desktop Calendar Kitty has been tentatively named Sheldon.

The above version is for WIDE screens. It's native size 1920 by 1080 to cover cinema displays. This size also fits 1600x900, 1366x768 - up or down in size quite a bit... basically any wide monitor size. You should pick your wallpaper based on the aspect ratio, and this one is for all the wider sizes. Now, older "wide" monitors like mine will leave a little bar at the top and bottom (mine is 1680x1050, it's an older "wide" resolution) but it will look fine - especially if you change your desktop background color to black.

We haven't forgotten the older 4:3 "TV" ratio screens either! My sister still has that, at 1280x1024 or 1024 by 768. I have an old laptop that uses this ratio, too! The one below is that standard ratio (not wide) and will work on anything from 640x480 on up!

SIMPLE WALLPAPER HOW-TO: Click on the image of your choice to see the full size version, then right-click on it (one-button Macs, use CONTROL-Click).and select "Set as Desktop Background".(Firefox) / "Set As Background" (Explorer) - This also saves the image to your computer. Using Firefox, it will usually look best if you use the options "Stretch" and a black background, like this:

The latest versions of the Chrome browser make it a little harder: Right-click and select "Save image as..." Remember where you saved the file. Then go to your desktop, right-click, select the "Desktop" tab, click "Browse" and navigate to the place where you saved this file. Select the file and click OK.

Any problems or questions? Leave a comment and we'll see if we can work it out. Or visit me on Twitter or Facebook.

 Thank you for being a part of our feral family.


  1. another grate pick sure chriss...we dunno if this wee kitteh's eyes help show off hiz coat...ore de other way round !!! veree nice ta meet ewe small dood :)

    hope everee one haza grate week oh end !

  2. That's a great tutorial Chriss especially for the likes of me. I can do some things on the computer but other things, like what you described, I had not known how to do that. Thank you. Also, I seem to have a lot of trouble with word verify, after trying to post a comment. Must be my eyes.

  3. Thank you. It's not you, they've gotten a lot harder! Sometimes I really can't figure them out. Because of that I've been turning the verification off, periodically. Then I turn it back on again when I start getting too much spam. I'd like to just leave it off all the time but the spam commenters get to me after awhile.


Comments are welcome! I always answer questions if I can.
