I grew up with a lot of animals. My childhood was shared with 6 dogs, 6 cats, more birds and rodents than I can remember, and a few fish too. My mother must have been a saint.
J is not so much an animal person, so it's hard for him to understand my utter devotion to Maus...the way I cradle her like a baby, kiss her whiskers, and whisper sweet nothings in her ear. Okay, I'm a crazy cat lady.
But I'm crossing my fingers and hoping there are a few animal lovers in the blog-o-sphere who will appreciate these photos as much as I do. I was stunned when I came across a few of these the other day, and it inspired me to pull together the best animal photos I've got on my hard drive, in honor of the little critters (okay, mostly cats) who deserve more of the spotlight.

Are you an animal lover?
