Whether they scurry, flutter or bound, creatures from the animal kingdom are often irreplaceable members of our families. The pets we own keep us in good company and shower us with unconditional love each day of their lives. Scroll through hundreds of photos from readers who want to show off how adorable, loving - or just plain crazy - their pets can be.
This is my neighbour's nine-year-old golden retriever, Santana. He comes over regularly for a doggy treat and is super friendly. We recently adopted a kitten from the SPCA, Charlie. Santana and Charlie tend to only meet through the window. I snapped this picture as they were gazing through my window. It seems they want to meet "in person" but Charlie isn't allowed out!
