Custom cat topper. Tops whatever machine he feels like at the time. Meteor is his favorite.

I actually have 2 toppers...they move from game to game depending on their mood!! This one is complete with the glowing eyes!!
The other one is black, and I don't have a pic of him as topper...but he tends to like to occupy whichever game the other one is comfy on!! LOL!! He is more of a player (more so when he was littler, but he still likes to play a game now and then, usually when you are in the middle of a particularly good game...all of a sudden there will be a black blob blocking your view!! :-))...he loves to get on the PF and chase the ball around. Used to be you couldn't turn on the sys 11s, he would come running from wherever he was sleeping and leap onto the game to play...his favorites are the ones with clear ramps...(Cyclone, Taxi)
If I remember right, the biggest problem with those cat toppers is you can't completely pay them off for years...isn't that right? If I get a topper for one of my Pins I want to pay for it and be done, not have to keep "feeding" the price of a topper. IMHO
Cool pics though!
My kitten topper decided this year that the Christmas tree was more suitable:

LOL!!! Mine (3) LOVE the Christmas tree...But I have managed to convince them that climbing in it is a bad idea!! The first year we were in our new house, I decided I wanted to do the live tree thing...well not anymore, kitties (had 2 at that time) decided that it was a good idea to climb the tree and they knocked it over, I lost some of my favorite crystal and glass ornaments, a light off the sofa table that the tree landed on...and almost 2 kitties!!! Cause I threatened them both that I was gonna skin them if they even pretended like they were gonna pull that again. So now I am back to fake tree, and the 1 kitty that was here originally, has her spot as soon as I get the tree skirt out...she loves to lay under the tree on the tree skirt...The youngest of the 3 that I have now is only 2, and he loves to "help" me un-decorate...i usually have to put the garland back on the tree every morning, because Dr. Destructo pulls it off, but knock on wood we have had no more climbing incidents since 2001!! I discourage them if I see them even thinking that it might be a good plan!!
Worldofglenn, please make sure that you power off the game when your little buddy is "fixing" the machine. I would hate to hear that he got shocked.
My other cat has not tried pinball. As you can see from my Avatar she is more of a beer can emulator (see 1st pic), or dog-on-leash impersonator (see second pic):

LOL!! Too cute!! That actually looks like my oldest (one that was here for the Christmas tree incident!!) She is a Russian blue, and is VERY opinionated on what HER spots are...Oh and she LOVES boxes also...she loves it when I go to Sam's and bring her home a new box to sleep in!!
Cat + PDI glass = this...
I never catch my cat in the act but every time I go to play the pins I have to clean all the paw prints off the glass.
CrazyFliprFingrs,It's a Bally COSMOS machine,EM from 1969-I bought it and fixed and hand painted the cabinet and backbox and really hated the machine after I put so much effort into it.
It worked about 95% but was so slow and boring-I gotta admit I pretty much hate the gameplay of EM's,although I generally like the artwork.
Above is a link to the machine.Thanks for asking about it though,Kirk
Thats exactly why we have not been able to have a Christmas tree for the past 10 years.
Fortunately for us that cat is almost 3 years old now and stopped doing the climbing after the first Christmas. The picture was taken when she was about 8 months old and still had crazy kitten energy. She still is extremely playful but lost the crazy for the most part.
