Your Afternoon Animal Fix

by Prince Of Petworth December 17, 2015 at 3:30 pm 12 Comments

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.


“These are our two Siberian Cats, Giles (Gray) and Archie (Blonde). They live with us a block from U Street.”


“Hayley from Kingman Park isn’t sure what happened to her toy.”


“Thor and Loki in Adams Morgan have really tough lives.”

  • Angry Parakeet

    Twin cats! Such unusual color.

  • Jimthephotographer

    If you are talking about Giles and Archie, they are brothers from the same litter believe it or not.

    • LittleBluePenguin

      are they shaved? it looks like they have that “lion cut” going…

      • Jimthephotographer

        Yes, they are medium to long haired cats normally. We give them the lion cut when they really start to shed. They seem cool with it.

        • LittleBluePenguin

          Yeah, my grandmother did that with her Himalayan – he wouldn’t stand being brushed without putting up a terrible fight, so after several trips to the hospital for cat bites, she gave up and started getting him shaved. The first time, he looked as embarrassed as a cat can look, but after a while it was just his “look” and he wore it with ease and grace!

          • Jimthephotographer

            Nice. Yes, hair matting is an issue for long haired cats. These two don’t like being brushed either.

    What a cute bunch. I heart boxers and the shaggy kitties look super.

  • Emmaleigh504

    Giles and Archie have such cute faces.
    Poor Haily, what a mournful face.
    Thor and Loki, cute snuggle bunnies.

  • wdc

    He looks like a Giles.
    Who’s that being left out of Thor and Loki’s snugglefest? I can’t tell if it’s a real cat or some kind of cardboard cutout of one…

    • nevermindtheend

      Hah – that’s our flat cat. My dad made if for me when I was little. When we first got Thor and Loki it scared the bejeezus out of them.

  • LittleBluePenguin

    Love all the animals, and I love Hayley’s mildly confused/serious look! Also, is that another kitty in the corner, in the pic with Thor and Loki? An Odin or a Freyja maybe?

  • PJ from MtP

    Thor and Loki — magnificent Norwegian gods!
