Meet the Panelteers’ Pets: A Petstravaganza (with Comics)

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

There are not words to express just how much I loved this post on Book Riot. A celebration of pet appreciation week… with books. It is GENIUS I tell you, GENIUS.

We Panelteers can definitely give the Rioters a run for their money when it comes to cute pets so we decided to give you the chance to meet our BFFs.

In case you were wondering why I selflessly volunteered to perform the arduous task of compiling this post I would like to direct you to this gif of my dream life scenario.

So with no further ado, let me introduce you to our best friends, large, small, fluffy, furry, scaly, yarny and smooth, and what they’ve been reading/sitting on/chewing/ignoring this week!

Hattie Kennedy

Freya is my eldest cat and the most regal. She did not appreciate me interrupting her enjoyment of Captain Canuck and her death stare made that pretty clear.

Gog is my littlest kitten, she’ll read anything but her current favourite is Michel Rabagliati’s Paul series.

Magog is slightly less little than Gog but is far more adult in her reading choices. (Should I be letting her read Sex Criminals?)

Baby Cthulhu approves of Loki’s methods.

(I definitely want the pattern to make a Baby Cthulhu of my very own!)

 

Eric Margolis

Eric’s dog Bucky reading Captain America: Winter Soldier is so perfect I might have done a little jig of joy.

Meanwhile Neeko’s excitement at reading Ant Farm cannot be missed

Ardo Omer

Ardo’s Batmen are supporting one of their own, now I want a Batpet!

Ali Colluccio

Ali sent us this picture of Minerva the WonderCat and…

Thor: The Mighty Avenger
Minerva 1

X-Men: Season One
Minerva 2

SAGA
Minerva 3

Hilda and the Midnight Giant

Minerva 4

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl

Minerva 5

…and lastly, Fresh Romance
Minerva 6

And I would like to formally suggest that Ali gives Minerva her own Instagram account because I want to look at this cat ALL THE TIME.

Swapna

Swapna sent us this ace picture of the Panels Mascot Baby Groot surveying his stack of reading for the week ahead. Baby Groot makes good reading choices!

Becca Sexton

Becca sent these pictures of her cat Nikki enjoying She-Hulk. They’re both still mad about it getting cancelled.

Nikki

And her cat Eliot with Rat Queens (look at those eyes!).

In other news, I am currently working on a fiendishly elaborate plan to steal Lily.

Jon Erik Christianson

Jon sent in this ADORABLE picture of his dog Millie Reading Laika!

(Jon: “I probably shouldn’t tell her how it ends, huh?”)

Marcy J Cook

Marcy’s cat Spike is reading the Bat-Manga anthology, he seems pretty into it, I like it.

Spike

Here is her cat Hagrid reading Seconds, Marcy described him as a “large, happy and perennially clumsy Maine Coon” which makes me want to steal meet him all the more.

Hagrid

Marcy’s leucistic leopard gecko Gummi is really into Gon:

Caroline Pruett

Caroline’s Lady Hadassah is beautiful and has amazing taste in comics.

Here’s her Lying Cat impression.

Not to mention her exemplary taste in cuddly toys

Brenna Clarke Gray

Brenna’s cat Chaucer seems to be really enjoying Simone Lia’s Fluffy

So that’s all for now, but you can bet I’ll be pushing for a follow up post next year to see what Gummi, Minerva, Nikki, Coco et al have been enjoying reading.
