It’s been a while since I’ve blogged pets with my stuff, so bear with me please!

From the top:

Andrew Hassing’s beloved late Tootsie, Annelise’s kitten Tyler Cats, Dustin Britt’s curious tabby Apollo, Ashleigh Briggs’s Puggy pup Jelly, Brittany Wagner’s Sheltie Sadie, Caitlin Hayes’s HUMAN CHILD Zoe (not a pet; a baby!), Matt Feige’s Captain Cassidy in a cast, Cara and Kay’s pup Griffin, Cassie McFadden’s Zoe, and Dallas Trinkle’s kitty Mercedes.

I haven’t blogged pets with my stuff for a bit, so excuse the deluge of adorability. All of these animals, I should add, are completely terrific. They are, from top to bottom and left to right:

Isaac P.R. and John Marshall’s pup Grammer (named after Camille, natch); Ariel Rasmussen’s fetching Russian Blue, Tabby; Abbey Lynch’s uncle’s mini-schnauzer, Jerry (Jerry!); Jenny Martin’s laughing bandana girl Audrey; Jedi, who belongs to Gabe Durham (an amazing author whose book you should pre-order!); Ronald Faulkner’s blonde pup Erie; Charlotte and Eric White’s tuckered-out Tucker; Maddy Boesen’s fan of eating magic markers and Ikea packagaing, Rue; Danielle McGurran’s family’s seeing-impaired angel, Bella; and supermodel of the year/cat most likely to make Emma Stone think really long and hard about whether she’s even pretty, PomPom—a stunning cat who belongs to Madeline Stano.

Thanks to the pets and their peoples for sending these life-affirming photos. What is the point of making things if you can’t collect pictures of animals standing next to them? Precisely nothing.

Which of these cats is the best cat? Note: THIS IS A TRICK QUESTION, EACH OF THEM IS THE GREATEST CAT.

(L-R) Klazina Crawford’s new kitten, Jezebel, Rae Melo’s Tuxedo sprawler Nico & Paul Sweedlund’s manly ginger Gomez.

Hank Hedland’s dog Baxter (L) and Jake & Amanda Mohan’s puppeh Wally (R) prefer to read my book in e-book format. Hooray for them!

Here are some great dogs with my book!

From L-R, Sebastian Sharp’s black lab Rudy, Rosemary Mangiardi’s shepherd mix Portia & David Oxley’s pooch Grizzle. I cherish these pups and believe they deserve treats and pettings.
