Cats steal the show on this week's Pet Photo Friday

By Lorrie Shaw

We invite our readers to interact here on the pets section any chance we get, and one thing is evident: People are passionate about their companion animals, no matter what breed they are. And as we see at the end of each week, they like to show off their cute pet photos!

It's always fun to see what our readers' lives are like with their own pets and other animals, and there are always interesting stories to tell.

This week, you'll notice that the slideshow is clearly dominated by cats.

It's all in good fun!

It seems with the ease of smartphones in taking spur-of-the-moment shots of, well, just about everything — including pets — there is no shortage of photos that we hadn't intended on taking.

The most comical ones often include those that have been photobombed. You know, you're having a great time, trying to catch an awesome shot of something (maybe another pet) and another companion animal pops into the lens' view, just as the image is captured.

These are some of the funniest photos around — and we would love to see your images that have been the result of a pet photobomb on next week's slideshow.

Participating in our weekly photo blog is easy — simply email a photo of your pet to any time for our weekly Pet Photo Friday feature.

Be sure to include the name of the animal(s), as well as their age and city or township of residence in your email. Photos should be 1,200 pixels wide and in .jpg format.

We put the week's photos into a slideshow, publish and promote each Friday here in the Pets section.

Sophie is definitely a cat I can relate to! my cat looks just like her. "Esther" also helps me around the house......usually by winding herself around my ankles......but when she stretches out next to me in bed and goes to sleep it makes up for it a millionfold! love you, kitty!!!
