Talk to the paw

Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!

When a person says “Talk to the hand,” complete with gesture, it’s a way of dismissing someone. But when animals offer a “talk to the paw,” they’re reaching out and typically inviting interaction. Really, who can resist cute images of animals trying to grab your attention? And if the paws in the pics include little jelly bean toes, all the better! Check out the photos below and be invited into the Sanctuary residents’ world.
