5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Cat Photos; Ignore the Captions,
This review is from: Cat 2012 Gallery Calendar (Calendar)We've only gotten this calendar for one year, but have enjoyed it and will be re-ordering for 2012. Our hope is that there won't be any/many repeats of photos. The photos, which are, for the most part quite good, and printed nicely on very heavy paper . Occasionally there's a photo that looks like a too-arranged studio piece, but there are only a few of those. Some of the photos are arresting, and often, the photographer has captured something of the mind, intent, mood, or soul of its cat subject. And face it, if you love cats, you almost always wish you could have more. This calendar allows you to have a new cat every day (Weekends get only one cat.) The calendar, as a whole, captures the domestic cat in its infinite variety. The plastic holder is substantial and simple, and displays the photos well. Our only complaint is that if you know very much at all about cats, you'll be put off by the captions which seem to have been written by someone who doesn't know much about cats. Almost immediately, we decided not to read them because they were irritatingly irrelevant. Workman, please, either don't use captions in the 2013 calendar, or get someone to write them who knows something about cats--their body language and expressions. Seriously. The captions aren't worthy of the photos--or the cats. Don't anyone be discouraged from buying this calendar because of the flimsy captions. They're easy to ignore because they're small print, and tucked into an upper corner. If you love cats, this is a really fun, beautiful, quality calendar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't be without mine,
This review is from: Cat 2012 Gallery Calendar (Calendar)I have been getting the Cat Gallery calendars since 2002. I have enjoyed the company of two cats and love their attitude and antics. Just when I think they are too independent, one will drop into my lap and cuddle.
So I keep a Cat Gallery calendar at work to keep me company there too. Every day a different page, with only weekends combined and I am not there to see weekends anyway (I sometimes leave the weekend up for part of Monday. It doesn't work; I still know it's Monday.) The photography is cute, beautiful, seasonal, and always colorful. Each day has a short description or quote (which often finds its way to Facebook).
My one dislike is that the photographer and/or description writer does not always know what they are portraying in the picture. If you know cats and cat body language, the cat described as "bold" is more likely startled by something done by the photographer or handler at the time of the shoot. At least once a week I mildly to moderately interpret it differently.
My basic cubicle has a large island calendar to give me an outside view of the world and a daily cat calendar to remind me of home and an occasional cat cuddle. Beautiful. Life is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars meowvelous,
This review is from: Cat 2012 Gallery Calendar (Calendar)Everyone loves this calendar - bought for my 92-year-old mom who only since moving in with me and my critters has become something of a cat person. She loves, loves, loves this calendar. She's had a couple of hospital/rehab stays, and we always take this calendar with us. Cheers her, the room, the nurses, etc. And the photography is wonderful - high quality photos, printing. Can't believe the variety of kitties, how superbly their expressions and attitudes are captured in the images. And all for $10 - amazing. (I actually paid less last year because I think we bought it in Feb.) We look forward every day to discovering the next picture. Best $10 purchase we made all year - buy it, you'll love it, even if you're not a cat fanatic. It's a happy maker.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice for a cat lover's desktop,
This review is from: Cat 2012 Gallery Calendar (Calendar)Artful photography of beautiful cats...any cat lover would enjoy having this day-to-day calendar on their desk. I got this for 2012 and I always looked forward to seeing who the new "cat of the day" was!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great calendar,

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone who loves cats should buy this,
This review is from: Cat 2012 Gallery Calendar (Calendar)I get one every year and this year I also did the online one that you can sign up for. It's the bad cat calendar on my computer each day. But the paper calendar gives you daily news about different breeds and lots of hints about cat care as well. All cat people should buy this calendar yearly.

5.0 out of 5 stars An annual purchase,
This review is from: Cat 2012 Gallery Calendar (Calendar)Cat lover. This calendar is an annual purchase for me. I enjoy the different photos and captions and often wonder what it would be like to have such a great job as to go out and find cats to photograph for a living. I think I picked the wrong career!
