Caturday: Emma wants you to take a break

Caturday: Emma wants you to take a break

We seem to have found a compromise between those who want to see cats on Apple World Today every Saturday (like me) and those who send terse emails to us whenever we revive the Caturday feature. It works out great when we get the occasional email from our cat-loving readers telling us the story of their cats and their affection for Apple products.

Today's beauty is Emma, who is the companion of reader David van Enckevort. Here's his story about her:

Caturday returns! Leonie kills the keyboard

Caturday returns! Leonie kills the keyboard

Cats. You've got to love 'em, even when they do decide to be destructive. Our Caturday (and summertime "Dogs Days of Summer") feature has been an on-again/off-again column since the days of TUAW and a shortfall of incoming kitty photos has kept us from having our feline friends for a long time. Well, a long-time reader from Germany -- Dr. Tim Optenhöfel -- decided to jumpstart Caturday again with a photo of his beautiful and cantankerous cat Leonie. Tim says:

Caturday: Sad kitteh means it's time for the Dog Days of Summer!

Caturday: Sad kitteh means it's time for the Dog Days of Summer!

Believe it or not, we finally ran out of the seemingly inexhaustible crop of cute pictures of cats laying atop, beside, or inside current or vintage Apple gear. Since it's warm out in the Northern Hemisphere, most cats are avoiding the computers and trying to stay cool. Sooo, it's time for you to get us those pictures of your favorite dog with Apple gear in the photo for what we used to call The Dog Days of Summer over at TUAW.

Caturday: Casey, feline commander of the iMac!

Caturday: Casey, feline commander of the iMac!

It's all in the timing. Sometimes we Mac-loving cat toys catch our furry buddies in the act of doing something that looks so human... In this case, Casey looks like he's checking out settings to make sure they're correct, but he's actually more interested in a fly that's landed on top of the iMac. Here's the scoop from Casey's loving human, Maryann Trozzo:

Caturday: Dempsey's iPod touch

Caturday: Dempsey's iPod touch

Dempsey is a very, very lucky cat belonging to Kyle Hagen and Melissa Caolo. That's her iPod touch - Kyle let us know that "Now that Dempsey's owner has upgraded to an iPhone she has claimed his iPod Touch as hers. 'Finally a device I can operate without thumbs!'"

With that intent look in those beautiful green eyes, I don't think there's any way Kyle is going to get that iPod touch back... ever. Does Dempsey have her own Apple Music account yet?

Caturday: Floyd the gamer cat

Caturday: Floyd the gamer cat

After years of Caturdays, I've finally seen something I thought I'd never see -- a cat who is into gaming. This is Floyd, the sister of Pink and a three-year-old Maine Coon Cat. His human companion Niall Gillespie says of the picture above that "It would appear that my wife has trained him to kill me every time I play Team Fortress 2 on the Mac- he takes great delight in sitting on the keyboard as I frantically scrabble to see around him."

Caturday: Norwegian cats love their Macs

Caturday: Norwegian cats love their Macs

Last week's Caturday cat of the week was Leo, a beautiful Norwegian Forest Cat who was in the process of updating her MacBook Pro to the latest Mac OS X 10.10.4 beta. Maybe this is a trend, or maybe all cats in Norway have MacBooks, because this week we're bringing you a sweet Norwegian kitteh who appears to be logging into this MacBook Pro! The photo is courtesy of Jørn Aune, who tells us:
