Am I right in thinking you are just concerned with the giant cat
breaking the planet page? If so then the problem is just the fact the
image hosted on the planet that you use as your little icon is too big.
To fix it just reduce the size of the image to something a little more
sensible and ask someone (popey?) to replace your image on the planet.

Hope that helps.
