Readers Share Photos of Their Furry Friends

Hello Babblers! Last week we did a shout-out to you, our faithful Babble Pets reader, for pictures of your adorable canine and feline pals. For many of us, pets are vital members of our families. The American Psychological Association reports that “pets can serve as important sources of social and emotional support for ‘everyday people, as well as those suffering from significant health challenges.”

Looking at these pictures, we can really feel the love.  When we do a shout-out again, we’d love to see even more of your furry (or slithering) critters, whether it’s a rabbit, snake, sugar glider, etc. To show our appreciation, we’d like to take a moment to showcase some of the pets in YOUR home.  Thanks for submitting!
