Brace yourself, adorable notes, letters and signs about cats and dogs ahead. You'll laugh, you'll cry — you'll feel all the feels.
1. This one about a senior pug settling into his new digs.
Video of the Day
My name is Charleston Chew and I'm very sorry for my howling.
I'm an old man now, with cataracts, and sometimes I get real scared because I can't see where I am and I can't find my mom.
As I get used to my new place, I will start to settle down.
Thanks for being patient with me. I don't mean to be such a pain.
Charleston Chew Pug, Apt 502
P.S. When I'm not howling and being bad, I like to sit nicely or take naps."
2. This sweet handwritten letter from a boy offering to walk his neighbor's puppy.
My name is Troy
I'm in the 4th grade and I'm just wondering if maybe after this virus you need a dog sitter and if so I can take your dogs on walks and more."
"This is Arthur. He received a letter today from his 10-year-old neighbor, Troy. I’m told he is incredibly flattered and hopes to schedule a play date soon. 14/10 for both"
3. This letter from a girl pitching her parents on the merits of adopting a 3rd doggo.
"Letter I got from my 8yr old daughter today. Should I get her another Frenchie? We already have 2 😂 apparently that's not enough."
"Dear Mom and Dad,
I want another French bulldog. I will take them on walks every day except if it snowing, raining or cold, that will not be happening.
We would have a dog for every child.
I will feed them and give them water.
They are entertaining and fun to play with!
If you get us another French bulldog I will bring the mail in again so you don't have to do it!
Love your awesome,
4. This letter from roommates offering to sit their neighbor's pup, which generated an equally terrific response.
"Been saying we'd love a dog about the house but our landlord doesn't allow pets, so my housemate posted a letter to our neighbours asking if we could walk their dog every once and a while and the response was better than we could have ever hoped for"
We are four engineers that have recently moved into the area in the past 3-4 months. Our house is comprised of an Englishman, two Scotts and a Welshman. Diversity.
The other day, we noticed a four-legged friend looking at us out the window when we arrived home from work. He or she looked like the good-est boy/girl there is. If you ever need someone to walk him/her, we will gladly do so. If you ever get bored, we are more than happy to look after him/her. If you want to come over and bring him/her to brighten up our day, you are more than welcome. If you want to walk past our balcony windows so we can see him/her, please do.
We hope this doesn't come too strong, but our landlord won't allow pets, and we've all grown up with animals. The adult life is a struggle without one.
We look forward to hearing from you.
The boys from number 23.
What a treat it was to receive your letter. On the subject of treats, I like them a LOT. Big ones and meaty ones... oh sorry, where was I ?!
I am two years and 4 months old, and I am a Sheprador (Lab x GSD). I come from Cyprus originally but Chris and Sarah rescued me from a cage in the 'doggy hotel.'
You're right that I am the best - girl - how did you know?? I am very friendly and full of beans. I love meeting new people and it would be great if we could be friends. I must warn you that the price of my friendship is 5x ball throws a day and belly scritches whenever I demand them.
We here understand how hard it is to find pet-friendly rentals - and life just isn't full without a dog in it - right?! I'd love to hand out whenever you fancy. Give my servant Chris a Whatsapp [name redacted] and we can arrange a meet up!
Looking forward to mlemming you!

"Update: The boys from 23 just met Stevie, looks like the start of a beautiful friendship."
5. This letter from a barking pup to the residents in his new apartment building.
My name is Fitz & I just moved into apartment E56! My parents are trying to teach me how to sleep in my crate at night, but sometimes I get a little nervous and can complain.
I'm sorry if my voice is too loud & you can hear me through the walls.
To help you out, my mom & dad got you some earplugs & treats!
If you can be patient with me & my mom & dad, I will be so happy!
Just know the the 3 of us are working on helping me become the best pup I can (be)!
Your neighbor at E56,
P.S. If you ever want puppy love, mom & dad say it's OK to come knock on our door - I know I'd love that!"
6. The sign posted on the door of a library in Minnesota.
"** Please do not let in the cat **
His name is Max. Max is nice.
His owner does not watn Max in the Library.
We do not want Max in the Library.
Max wants to be in the Library.
Please do not let Max into the Library."
7. This wonderful exchange between neighbors during the Pandemic of 2020.
"What is the black + white cat called?"
"Update... we're flirting."
"Great name, Walter is a handsome boy."
"He says thank you"
8. This letter from an older dog with separation anxiety to his new neighbor.
"I'm a 7-year-old golden retriever living upstairs with mom ... and I hope we can be friends. I'm pretty mellow but with so many changes in my life ... [I get a] ... a bit of anxiety. )
I get nervous when my mom leaves for work.
Sometimes I howl when I get nervous, but I'm working on it! I try not to howl too much, but sometimes ... I get separation anxiety and my nerves get the best of me. [My human mom] Mary monitors [me] on a surveillance camera to make sure I'm not howling too long. I would feel bad if I was being disruptive.
I only [howl] when Mary initially leaves, but I calm down after a few minutes.
I'm a very happy girl and I have a lot of interests, like [going] for car rides [and eating French fries]."

10. These instructions for the delivery man delivered by a good boy.
"Please put packages in the box.
(Our dog is friendly but likes to eat envelopes & packages. 🙁)"
11. And this sign congratulated a mailman who was retiring.
7 1/2 years of barking at you have paid off!!!
Bye Willie!!!! <3
I hope our next postal carrier can tolerate me and all us other dogs as well as you have. You'll be missed!
Love ya, Miss Mary Jane (MMJ)"
