PETS: Readers send in photos of their animals

Readers have submitted hundreds of entries to View’s pets section. Because we only can feature a few photos each week in the newspaper, we decided to expand the sharing online. We hope you enjoy these extra faces, and remind you to check back each Tuesday for more photos of your best friends.

“These two girls are Casi and her daughter, Lizzy,” wrote Raymond Chadwick of Las Vegas. “The girls will help occupy the empty end of the couch when you’re watching TV. Photo was taken by my wife, Jean, while fighting for her of the couch.”

Ioana Petre of Summerlin shared this photo of her cat, Faro. “He is so full of energy and ready to play 24/7. He is about 7 years old but still very much a kitty at heart. He lives in Summerlin with his elder friend, Alex, who is sweet and laid back and just the opposite nature.”

William R. Speer of Las Vegas shared this photo of his 2-year-old cat Nacci, who was adopted from a shelter. “Our cats have always been named for famous mathematicians. Nacci (Na-Chee) is short for Fibonacci (Leonardo of Pisa). She’s an indoor cat with a real affinity for people of all ages. Like most cats, she can easily identify the person that really needs to be won over through ‘cat charm’ and immediately goes to work on doing so!”

“Jack and Suzy are not related but are very close friends,” wrote Ken and Claudia Wolt. “They were placed in the same carrier at 10 weeks old and have been  inseparable ever since. Jack was the runt and is very fast. Suzy can’t keep up when they’re playing, but she uses her feminine guile to catch him. They give lots of love and joy! They’re our babies!”

Movie posters might soon be based on your clicks

You may have thought you left Blockbuster behind, but the basic way we browse movies hasn’t changed all that much. We peruse poster after poster, kind of like walking the aisles of a ‘90s-era video store. That one poster image, meant to appeal to as many people as possible, is often all we see before […]
