How 2 Properly Pet Animals (Illustrated!)

Sometimes petting animals can get a little bit dicey. Oh sure, puppehs love the standard scritch behind the ears..and kittehs love..whatever it is they’re OK with at that very moment. Which is subject to change without notice.

But what about our other kinds of friends? Here’s a helpful guide for ya.

Erin H., Here’s Yer CotD 4 Today

“Hi, Meg & company. I’m a 7th grade English teacher @ Longfellow Middle School in Falls Church, VA and every day I start my classes with something called “Cute of the Day.” It’s a photo or short video to put the kids in a happy mood. The CotD often comes from Cute Overload! I also work with a local cat rescue group. This is my cat Jack, a Maine Coon mix. I adopted when I lived in England for a few years. As you see, Jack’s a pirate cat. He’s had the hat for a few years now, and ate the feather long ago as payback for me putting the hat on him!”

P.S.: “As the rhyme I made up says, “Jack, Jack the pirate cat. He ate the feather off his hat!”

実行する !それは Bunzilla です ! (Run! It’s Bunzilla!)

[There’s a new Godzilla movie coming out, and he trashes San Francisco. I don’t think Bunzilla here would do that. He might take all our lettuce and carrots, though. -Ed.]

“My boyfriend and I recently adopted a Bun in need of a new home. He arrived Easter night (not planned, I swear) and was bigger than we expected. His name’s Cinnamon, but he goes by Cinnabun, Bunzilla (obviously,) Bunarrific (because he’s great,) James Bun, and Bunston Churchill. He’s settling right in, eating ridiculous amounts of lettuce, and alternately enthralling and terrifying our cats Sailor and Squid. We’re madly in love with our new guy.”

Patty & Her Little Guys

“Hope it isn’t too late to submit for Mother’s Day…[Nope! -Ed.]…this is my foster kitty Patty & her 4 babies. Patty was heavily pregnant when she was trapped in a feral colony (she’s definitely not feral!) I took her home & the next day she gave birth. The babies were 2 weeks old yesterday. Patty is the best mommy and her kittens are beyond adorable!” -Cuteporter Cathy O’B.

For Starters, Get Your Claws Out of My Eye

Mother of mine, you’re an angel divine, to you I owe all affection
The wisdom you taught can never be bought, it gave me dreams and direction
Always to you I will ever stay true, and never hurt or betray you,
For all you’ve done for your grateful son, how could I ever repay you?
