August 2017 Cat of the Month #Wallpaper

Wow, it's August already. ...And we're still here! Amazing. It's hot, and this is a good time to get your sun in the shade, which is why we have Cats in Sun and Shade for our August Wallpaper!

The above image is HD 1080p sized (once you click on it) - or you can choose a more proper size for your system:

Wide/HD 16:9 Wide 16:10 TV 4:3 Mobile Devices

For Desktop and laptop computers:
Use the links above to pick the size ratio that matches your monitor. I know that many people don't know what display size they have on their monitor - it's okay. The first two are wide monitors. If you have a wide monitor and one image doesn't look quite right, try the other one. The third version is for the older analog tv type displays, including flat panel displays that mimic them with that squarish ratio. We still have a few of them.

Some examples of aspect ratios:
Wide/HD/16:9 - 1024×576, 1152×648, 1280×720, 1366x768, 1600×900, 1920×1080, 2560×1440 - HDTV
Wide 16:10 - 1280x800, 1440×900, 1680x1050, 1920×1200 - Macbooks,  iMacs + MS Surface etc
TV 4:3 - 640x480, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x1152 etc. - older monitors and laptops, mostly
The size shown in italics above is the actual image size that I've linked to, but as long as you pick the right ratio it will look GREAT on your monitor using "Stretch" or "Fit to screen" as your option when you set an image as your wallpaper.

Click on the link to 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" or "Fit" and a black background, like this:
Free Cat Desktop Wallpaper - right click and select save as or choose from the links below

The easy right-click desktop wallpaper method works with Safari, Explorer and Firefox. Many versions of the Chrome browser make it a little harder, plus there is weirdness going on with Windows 10: Right-click and select "Save image as..." Remember where you saved the file. Then go to your image, right-click, , and select "set as background."

Tablets and Phones
Pick the "Mobile" version... tap on the link above. When the image loads, tap and hold on the image until the menu pops up. Select "Save," "Save to camera roll" or "Save to library."  Once you have the image, go to your Settings app, select "Wallpaper" and choose new wallpaper from your photo library. That's it! Set your Cat Of The Month as  your lock lock screen too! :) There's no calendar on the mobile version, by the way. It just doesn't look right in that vertical aspect ratio. Other than that, it's the same.

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


  1. website was unavailable Aug 1 at 3:26 a.m. ET

  2. hmm, I don't know. Seems okay now.

  3. website is ok but the calendar won't load.

  4. I can't figure that one out because it's working for me. The wide screen version is available at the top of the page by just clicking on it. The others are on my art site but the links all seem to work. If there is a specific one that doesn't work I can look into that. I guess I will have to wait and see if others have a problem.

  6. I still cannot download the calendar. Thanks for these BTW, I use them every month!

  7. I'm sorry. Multiple people have downloaded various versions. If you're looking for something other than the 16x9 one that is at the top of the page, let me know and I will post it directly to blogger here.

    It might be something really specific on your end, since it seems to be working for most people. Clearing your browser cache might do the trick. I don't know.


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