Pets on web cameras

www.kvue.com

We all know countless people exchange email photos of their pets with friends and relatives in other parts of the country. Then there are pet pictures on Facebook, et cetera.

But I wonder how many pet owners around here include their animal companions in web camera visits with, say, a daughter in North Carolina or a grandparent in Montana.

And how many of these pets look at the screen and see the image of far-away animal companions looking back at them?

My guess is that, at almost any given moment, someone in the Inland Northwest is gently holding a cat's front leg and simulating a friendly wave to a web-cam feline somewhere a thousand miles away.

Not to mention doing the squeaky voice.

“Hi, Pookie! It's me, Chloe! How're you doing?”

Yes, certain people in our midst are nuts. But it's the kind of sweet craziness that makes you love them even more.
