What's with the feline avatars?

Just yesterday I thought I was reading a post by Roberta and it turned out to be Roger instead. Just as I was getting used to both of these posters having avatars of large cats, at least a couple of others changed their avatars, too. Now Sozobe and George have jumped on the bandwagon. And, of yes, djjd62. Anyone else?

What's going on here? Is this a new trend I was unaware of? Any day now I expect to see just a tiger's ear and find that Francis has changed his avvy.

It's all your fault, Roberta. You started it!

@Merry Andrew,
Roberta's in the hospital -- just went through 9-hour brain surgery. We're sporting her avatar until she gets back.

@sozobe,
Details on Roberta here:

http://able2know.org/topic/103192-1

No need to read the whole thing -- the last 3-4 pages have the important stuff. (She had the surgery and as per her friend Sheila, is doing well.)

Okay, well, that explains a lot. Payers and chants going up for Roberta as of now. (Don't think I'll post a puma for an avatar, though.)

@Merry Andrew,
I still can't see the new avatars, despite clearing my cache. I suppose I have to log out..

It's a cheetah, MA.

@ossobuco,
I might have drawn a leopard. Give Roberta something to kvetch about, when she comes back.

@Francis,
Aha, I see that. Roger is still a bemused burro...

Cheetah, puma, cougar, tiger, whatever.
They're all felis to me.

@Francis,
Felis sunt felix.
Sounds like the slogan on a motorcycle firm's logo.

But, I've always been a cat!

A particular cat: Boris.

My baby.

I'm honored to see that Francis seems to have taken my advice.

@Merry Andrew,
Indeed.

I'm also showing support to Roberta in times of pain...

I also can change your avvy for a feline (this time you don't need to do anything at all)..

@roger,
It is a leopard. My bad. I haven't had time to find an appropriate cheetah pic.
