Some cats just hang out on the furniture provided by their owners, others have nice and cozy pet beds. Pippin, however, has one of the best cat domiciles we’ve seen so far — a strawberry slot-loading iMac G3 that’s been outfitted with some nice cushions.
Pippin’s owner, Ian Cobb, named his feline companion after Apple’s ill-fated gaming console. There’s a box for a non-feline Pippin in this photo as well; see that box marked “Atmark”? Ian also has a nice Mac Portable, what appears to be a PowerBook 170, a Newton MessagePad 2000 (or 2100), and an eMate. So this week, you’re not only getting treated to a really cute feline, but also one of the best Apple collections I’ve seen in a long time.
We’d love to see photos of your favorite feline soaking up the warmth of an Apple product, chasing a Magic Mouse, or just being a general nuisance while you’re attempting to work on your Mac, iPad, or iPhone. Please let us know via our feedback page and please remember that your cat photo has to have some sort of connection to Apple or its products. For security reasons we can’t accept inbound attachments, so you should host the photo (Dropbox, Flickr, iPhoto Journals, etc.) and send us the link.
Many thanks to Ian Cobb for sharing this photo with us.
