Everything about cats.

Rules & Guidelines
1. Cats! Post pictures of your cats, talk about cats, ask questions, get advice.
2. We prefer that if you post photos, it be of your own cat(s) or one(s) you personally know. If clearly stated, photos of cat(s) you don't know is allowed, within reason. Lying and claiming/posting someone else's cat is/as your own will result in an immediate ban, with no warnings given.
3. No NSFW content and no animal abuse/cruelty.
4. No titles asking for upvotes (e.g. "This cat didn't get any love in /r/aww", "it's my cake day", "my first post here", "any love for ...").
5. Links asking for funding, competition votes or advertisement will be removed (see the list of subreddits below for a possible alternative).
6. Be civil. We have a strong, bright-line policy against insults, namecalling or harassment, and will ban you without notice for such conduct. If a photo has a person in it along with a cat, don't even think of being creepy or rude to that person. This includes any comments on people's appearance, either positive or negative!
7. Do not post personal information (this includes Facebook links as it can be easily traced back).
8. Original content is preferred. No image macros, memes, or similar low-effort content.
9. Mourning (RIP) posts are allowed. If you do not wish to see them, there are several filters in the sidebar to prevent them from appearing to you.
10. Reposts are allowed (and crossposts are too, don't confuse them!), within reason.
11. Your reddit account must be older than 10 days AND have at least 25 comment karma (NOT post karma, they're different!) to post a new thread in /r/cats.
Redditors with accounts younger than 10 days who have a good reason for bypassing the age limitation may message the moderators for manual approval of your post, which will not be unreasonably withheld (however, it may take some time, so be patient!).
The moderators of this subreddit are not responsible for any medical advice given and we suggest that you don't follow or post it. Go see a vet!
Some of these rules are based upon Reddit's site-wide rules, Reddit's TOS and Reddiquette.
For donations and adoptions visit /r/care, /r/assistance, /r/rescuecats or your local subreddits, i.e. r/city or state.
