I have had that problem for ages and only way I can see them is clicking on link underneath and they open in Irfan view which is my picture default.

I also cant download anything as a jpg as they all come down as a png with a jpg extention and then I have to resave as a proper jpg. png files are much bigger than jpgs and this has happened after downloading a pic to FB and now my sytem is corrupting everything.

So the paperes say its a win 7 thing and means your cache is full.................this is a load of garbage becuase mine isnt even close to being full.

Wow, can't believe how many entries there are - fab fab fab  :wow:

Might just be my connection but a lot of the pics aren't loading for me, even when I click refresh it's the same pics that don't load  :shy:

I can testify that the Cat Show is a great amount of work and the best way that this can be acknowledged and also to honour all the furbabes entered is for loads and loads of peeps to vote  ;D

As said everyone is a winner just by being entered and supporting cat rescue and every cat or kitten is stunning, so on Friday Thursday onwards let those votes roll in  ;D

OK folks ....  Drum roll......................  :innocent: :innocent: :innocent: :innocent: :innocent: :innocent:

I am asking Gill to unveil the Classes in the Cat Show before she retires for the evening  :wow: :wow: :wow:

Please bear in mind this is only for peeps to review and let me know of any errors by 9am Wednesday morning to give me time to correct anything.

Not open for voting until Thursday 26 May

Meanwhile prepare to drool  :drool; :drool; :drool; :drool; :drool; :drool; :drool; :drool; :drool;

Can I just mention again that the standard of entries is incredibly high and, whilst ALL CATS ENTERED ARE STUNNERS :blow kiss: :blow kiss: :blow kiss: , only one of the over 300 entries can win. 

Please don't be too disappointed if your gorgeous furry guys/gals don't manage to reach the next round  :hug: :hug:. It's a bit of a brutal process with only roughly one in four getting through to the semis.

I know how crestfallen I have been in the past but I've picked myself up and muttered a lot about how peeps have no appreciation of true beauty mutter mutter mutter   :innocent: and consoled myself with the knowledge that the entry fees are going to help cats in need  :yesss: :yesss: :yesss:  so hang on to that thought and well ..... enjoy the show  ....

If purrhaps the gorgeous furry(ies) that shares your life is lucky enough to reach the next round, it's just a bonus   :wooooo:

Thank you so very much for entering the Show.  Don't forget to vote from Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Allison raised a query on Alison's thread so thought I'd copy it to here for info.............

Rosella, how's the cat comp stuff coming along?

Almost there happily  :). Thanks for asking.  Just polls to put on which Tan is in the process of doing  :wow:.  Aiming to open for previewing on Tuesday morning so people can look for obvious errors as regretfully I am not purrfect  ;)  I intend to email link on Tuesday to all slaves  who have entered pics asking them to review pics entered..........

and then open  properly for voting next Thursday morning as planned  :yayyy: :yayyy: :yayyy:

Rosella, how odd that Class 5 has so many entries  :evillaugh: :evillaugh: 

It is truly very odd indeed  :innocent:  You'd almost think cats enjoyed sleeping  :o   :evillaugh:

ETA there is absolutely no such thing as silly questions on this thread  :)  .... except for maybe "do cats like sleepin'?"  :rofl:

Yes definately listen to the fact once the vote button is pressed thats it and you cant add, subtract or change your votes in any way.

Read the instructions for every class and remember them  :innocent:

It wont let you vote if you have picked too many entries.

OK folks this is part of the early warning system....

Are ya listenin?   :shify: :shify: :shify:

It is a very odd thing I know but, some Classes have more entries than others  :innocent:.  For instance, for some reason that I simply cannot fathom  :innocent: Class 5 "Relaxing Cats" has a "few" more entries than others  :Crazy: :Crazy: :Crazy:

Consequently you will discover when ya vote that you will be allowed completely different numbers of votes for EACH CLASS which are determined by the number of entries in that particular Class. 

I have a feeling this actually may have happened in past Purrs Cat Shows and some members did not realise  :shocked:  I do not want a repeat of similar disappointments this year coz once ya press the button to submit ya votes, there's no goin' back   :scared:

Further similar warnings will be posted peeps so I apologise in advance for repetition  :)

The beauty of the Purrs Cat Show is that you get more than one vote in each class so you can vote for your own beauties and other people's beauties too  ;D

Obviously if you don't want to vote for your own cats you're welcome to vote for my boys instead :naughty:  :evillaugh:

OK Purrs peeps, I fink we've done pretty good with the dosh   :) :) :)    ....... announcement of final amount will be made after the Top Cat is named on Tuesday 21 June  :wow: :wow: :wow:

1st round voting will start on Thurs 26 May which thankfully gives me time to load up the pics and videos (as there are quite a few  ;D  )  ............... so now a little patience is all that's needed.

Thanks a million to everyone who entered pics of their much loved furries to raise much needed funds for Cat Rescues    :Luv:

I have had such a treat looking through the pics.  As me mom remarked when looking at our Groucho's tail the other week.... "isn't nature wonderful!"   :) :) :)   and indeed nature is truly marvellous to be able to produce such beautiful pals for us all to enjoy .........
