The day begins with a heaped dessert-spoonful of Earl Grey.
People keep saying that cats rule the internet. (As if that were a bad thing.) Cats, these pundits propound, are not worthy of this prominence, being merely eye candy.
Today I challenge the idea that cats are just eye candy, while not entirely denying it. Yes, cats appeal to our sweet tooth. They are spotless and lustrous, like a Jaffa. They are soft and warm, like a brownie. They are agile and charismatic, like a, um, fairy mushroom.
But they fill our hearts, not our stomachs. They lift our mood, not our cholesterol level. So let’s think of today’s collection of readers’ pet photos as eye protein – as a square meal for the soul, offering a a full day’s recommended quantity of all the eye micronutrients. Scroll, and be nourished!
Thanks to all for submitting photos. Please email me your own pet photos, or message me via the Four Legs Good Facebook page. Help keep Furry Friday free of embarrassing mistakes by remembering to include your pet’s name, and its sex if it’s not obvious!
