ICYMI: SRQ Magazine’s May/June 2022 Edition

Pets We Love

It’s hard to put into words what our pets mean to us. It doesn’t matter what species, breed or age, where we find them or how we find them—they become part of you, your family and your home. You love them hard, and they love you back even harder. Well, cats might be another matter, but as long as we feed them, right? From a number of dog rescues and a munchkin kitty to a vivacious parrot and farm-family donkey, it’s time to honor our furry and feathery friends for their endless adoration and entertainment. Give a warm welcome to SRQ’s 4th Annual Pets We Love Contest winners. We thoroughly enjoyed reading through all the heartwarming submissions—including purrfect personalities, funny quirks, naughty habits, impressive tricks and adorable traits. You’re all in for a real treat…
