    Some of us keep the same avatar for years on end. Others change them every so often. For me, an avatar is just a bit of fun that I can change as I please.

    How long have you had your avatar for, how often do you change it, and does it mean anything to you?

    Its my cat, Tigger, when he was a kitten, he even had the look of menace then. As I can't be bothered to fart about with Avatars (stupid word anyway, wossit mean?) Tigger can stay and give everybody the evil eye. Not my idea of a "bit of fun", just anonymity.

    Thank you @Ivartheboneless ;):)

    I love cats and your avatar comes across as welcoming to me. Had to look up ‘avatar’. I would never have guessed it’s origins:

    ‘ Derived from
    the Sanskrit avatra, meaning “descent,” avatar first appeared in English in 1784 to mean an incarnation or human appearance of a deity, particularly Vishnu. Hindu mythology avers that 10 incarnations of the peace-loving divinity will appear on Earth, each an avatar, or “descent,” of the god ‘:eek:

    I’m trying to count in my head how many avatars I have had! I think it’s more than 5 so far ...

    My avatar is the closest I can find to a smoothnewt. I had a better one once but lost it somewhere along the way.

    Red pandas are my favourite animals. I have had several versions and I have a Christmas version too. No other reason really.

    Thankyou @nizebaby,

    Your avatar made me think of playtime as a child and happy memories.

    Had to look up ‘nizebaby’. Is it as in ‘Nize Baby’ by Milt Gross? I hadn’t heard of it before.

    Thankyou @smoothnewt

    Your avatar reminds me of the friendly newt in ‘Frozen’. Why a newt?

    Love red pandas - they look so cute and cuddly. Is your avatar for life?

    When he has his claws wrapped round my wrist and his teeth biting my knuckles he is showing his affection apparently. Funny how other forms of affection do not involve drawing blood.

    One of my favourite Chelsea players ever (along with Zola & Ian Hutchinson), and now our up-and-coming manager. Why would I change? :)

    It's my cats, and I like seeing them, so it stays. I did try to find a pleasing picture of a moth orchid once, but didn't like any. So then I tried to take one of myown plants, with no success. So the girls it is!

    Thankyou @mothorchid

    Your avatar makes me feel playful - reminds me of kittens chasing each other. And also companionship, family and trust ;);):)

    Mine started out as an Aperol Spritzer, which is what I was drinking when I set up this account on holiday. I changed it to mulled wine at Christmas but the quick splash of colour as I scroll down the page was just like another poster's, so I changed to the present one.
