It’s Day 8 of my 12 Days of Cuteness – a celebration of pet cuteness over the holidays.

I’m presenting photos of all the anipals and messages from them or their persons over the 12 days of Christmas. Check out the official gallery of cuteness right now.



“Lily is a seven year old grey tabby. She loves to jump and play soccer and can jump four feet in the air and catch a ball of paper in her front paws. Lily is also learning French. When I ask her “Lily, tu est folle?” She’ll roll around on the floor!” says Lily’s person.



“I’m making Merlin wave at all of Sadie’s anipals!” says Merlin’s person.

“Merlin is a seven and a half year old stray.

He does so many cute things. One of my favourites is when he curls himself up into a ball (I call him a cinnamon bun when he does this) and then midway through his nap he’ll flip over. His tummy is irresistible when he does that. I also love it when he has a dry nose after napping. No idea why.

Mr. Jay’s sister gave Merlin his name. He appeared on their doorstep from out of nowhere like a wizard.

Merlin’s man person and I just love him so much – although Mr. Jay, his man person, probably wouldn’t admit that.”



“Millo is a three year old Yorshire Terrier/Shih Tzu cross.

His funniest move is wiggling his butt and hopping like a bunny during walks.”

Mina & Soho



“My cats are both mutts. Mina (17) might have some Russian Blue in her but she came from the mean streets of East Vancouver, Canada.

Mina’s the toughest thing going. Almost everyone we know is scared of her except our vet, who LOVES her.

Soho (5) wants to be friendly but is pretty terrified of everything. Loves ‘sandwich petting’ (where you pet the top of his head and under his chin at the same time, so your hands are the bread and his head is the meat).”
