The Heights Life has decided to get pet-litical and issue endorsements in the Prince of Petworth's Coolest Pet Contest. I know for most pet owners in the area this is salt in the wound because your ferret Mickey or kitten Simba didn't make the finals.
Alas, if you can't see through your tears to cast a vote for someone else, you can just take our advice. Or you can fight with us about it in the comments section, that's totally cool.
First up: The Freak Pets. Oh, I mean... the "Other" category. THL endorses... drum roll... THE GUINEA PIG - Cladius. Check him out and vote for him here.
And for the cat category we had to think. One cat has no hair, but the other has thumbs and is wielding a fork. Also we know where thumbs lives and we think he can open doors, so we're too terrified to pick anyone but IKE THE THUMB CAT.
Check him out and vote for Ike here. We also found this photo of Ike (cats - they're just like us!):
