We had pics of dogs and cats, a dog and a bird and even a lizard, but it turns out that kitty love was the top vote-getter in the Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center and Urgent Care sponsored Best Pet Cuddle Photo contest.
The winner will receive a free exam from the vet clinic. Our runner-up, an inter-species moment between a dog and a bird named Rua & Echo, submitted by Nikki Ragsdale, will receive a Patch goodie bag. We'll contact you soon to arrange prize pick-up.
We received more than 50 entries portraying the amazing and sometimes surprising bond animals have for one another and their human buddies. From a cat nuzzling a lizard to kitties and dogs curled up together, these great shots are heartwarming. Click here to see them all.
