Cuter Than Your Average Pet IN Reader Submitted Pet Pics

Bama Fleetwood James Owner Alice James

020 2

We asked you to send us photos of your precious pets and you more than delivered. Initially we were going to pick some winners— like Cutest, Best Dressed, Best Celebrity Look-ALike—but we quickly realized that would be a nearly impossible task. We couldn't deny the lovableness of any of those sweet faces. Some of you went a little overboard, sending in what we can only assume is every photo of your pet ever taken. While we love and can relate to your enthusiasm, we had to edit down. You understand, right? If you sent in a photo and don't see it, it's probably because something was a little off with the photo quality (too small, too blurry, too dark for newsprint, etc..) We were not playing favorites or judging your pet’s cuteness, trust us. Just brush up on your photography skills and try again next year. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to email us. Our first ever Pet Issue wouldn't have been nearly as much fun—for us to make or for you to look at—without all these adorable photos.
