Adorable Pets in the Sun (Reader Photos)

With less than a month left of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, we—and our animals!—are making the most out of these last rays of warm sunlight.

In celebration of the end of summer, we asked you to send in your photos of your pets enjoying the long, warm days. We were amazed by the quality and cuteness of the responses we received. We couldn’t possibly pick just one favorite, so instead, we picked our favorite photos for five different categories: Happiness in Moderation, Water Lovers, Summer Activities, Sunbeam Naps, Friends in the Sun, and Beautiful Sunbathers.

Because of the high volume of responses, we’re unable to feature every great photo we received—but to everyone who sent in submissions, a giant thanks! Give your animals a loving pat for us.

They are all so beautiful! Had to come back and look again though so I could see MY favorites, the two Siamese. Just lost MY Baby, Misty less than a year ago. Such a lovely Siamese rescue kitty. Still miss her every day. She looked just like the one kitty in the basket. Thx so much for posting the pics! Really enjoyed them all.
