Need a Little SPF? Pets Sunbathing

I’ve watched my cats over the years (I used to have NINE, oy) squeeze themselves into the most awkward of positions to soak up that one little ray of sunshine that is managing to get into the house in the winter.

But it’s not just the cats that love the sun; so do dogs! Dogs roll, run, play, and bask in the sun just like cats. In fact, I’ve seen dogs lie in the sun with their legs up and belly exposed just to grab a few more rays.

You gotta love it.

But what you really want is to SEE it, right? Well, here you go. Enjoy these pets soaking up the sun!
