It's Friday! Here's a bunch of cute animals with Surface PCs

Hot on the heels of the Surface Laptop announcement, Microsoft unveiled an all-new Surface Pro for 2017, complete with Kaby Lake internals, sexy tilt-capable pen, and custom silicon that allows the Surface Pro to have unprecedented low inking latency.

All of this is great, awesome in fact, and if you want to recap on why the Surface Pro is also awesome (and a few reasons why it's not so awesome), be sure to take a look at our executive editor Daniel Rubino's Surface Pro 2017 pros and cons.

That's not why we're here today though, folks! Instead, now's the time to celebrate something near and dear to my heart: Surface Pets. What are "Surface Pets"? you ask? Prepare to be educated, with frightening cuteness.

Behold: Surface Pets

Surface Pets are, as the name implies, pets with Surface PCs! They're pets who love Surfaces as much as you and me. For example, here is my awesome cat Priesi enjoying the ambient warmth of my Surface Book.

People often post pictures of their pets with Surface devices on the subreddit /r/Surface (which by the way, is an awesome community).

If you want to post your own Surface Pet pictures (please do), I made a thread in our own forums:

Hi guys, Do you have a Surface? Do you have a PET? Combine them and you get... Surface Pets! Let's see them! :D BTozw2nDU-Y

Of course, it's not only cats that can get in on the Surface action, but also scaly friends, like our tortoise Napoleon.

Our executive editor, Daniel Rubino, also has a notorious turtle, appropriately named ... Turtle. Here's Turtle hanging out with a Surface Book!

"Doggos" or "doges," as known by the internet (or just plain "dogs" for you boring folks), can also get in on the cute Surface action.

For example, here's Surface Twitter fan Callum's Surface Puppy, looking rather hungrily at a Surface Type Cover.

Finally, here are a few more awesome pics from the community!

Show us your Surface pets

There are no pets better than Surface Pets. Be sure to jump into our forum thread to submit your own, and perhaps if we get enough we'll do some form of Xbox/Lumia/Surface Pet-themed giveaway in the future!

Some of these pictures were compiled by the awesome Jen Gentlemen from Microsoft's shell team. If you see a picture here that belongs to you and you'd like to be credited in some way (or have them removed), send an email to me: or DM me on twitter: @JezCorden!

  • Haha I don't let my cats near my surface.
  • Lol.. Cool... Now, if only WC let us post pictures in comments.... UPDATE!!!
    Gonna have to hire full time curation....
  • Haha, the turtle with the pen is hilarious! But I love the cat with the lighted keyboard pic...nice
  • People thought it necessary to ask what happens to WindowsCentral when Windows Phone is no more? This.
  • How is WP no more?
  • I did not say it was, I'm referring to an article a couple weeks back where this site posed that question. I thought it was a stupid and ridiculous question that didn't need asking.
  • Ooooohhhh, we got a wise guy on our hands.. Ok!
    Well, I'm the WP police... I'm gonna need to see your licenses, and registration... You, know what? Just go head and step out the vehicle.. Put your hands on top of the car... Anything In your pockets I should know about? Huh?.. SHUT UP! You only speak, when I say speak, you got that??.. I SAID SHUT THE FRENCH TOAST UP!.. You just don't understand, do you, boy?... Ok, what are you doing around these parts anyways?... What? Can anyone confirm that?.. Where are you headed?..🤣🤣 Yeah, I doubt you're on your way to church.. Get TF on the ground, smart ass. I'm going to teach you a lesson you're never gonna forget. .. I dare you to say something. You ready?
  • dont be afraid to say its dead... its dead a.k.a. maintance mode ON which means its dead but we (Microsoft) wont say that
  • It will never die. It never has before.. MS has had 20 years of some form of Windows on a mobile device, and hiatus at times in the past as well.... What makes you think they are gonna stop now??...... Better question, what's your definition of dead?.... You're saying its dead because MS is about to evolve it into the next iteration?😂😂😂 Ok.. Right. Maybe the better question is what's your definition of WP/WM/WinMo?.... Obviously, we both don't see it as the same..
    "Windows on Phone" is akin to Corvette. There's the C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7, and the upcoming C8... So, one day production will stop on the C7, and fools will cry "Corvette is dead"??? No, because even though GM retires the old chassis, there's always another, new version, coming after it.... Maybe people like you are used to iDroid, which never changes, and that's fine. But, MS has been on a path to bring PC to phone, and part of that task involves evolving, and moving on.. iDroid will never be anything but a mobile OS, but don't expect the same for WP.... Can't die unless Windows dies.
  • Not sure what you're suggesting?
  • Exactly my my thought ha ha. Oh well, I'm an animal man so it was kind of cute:)
  • That's refreshing kind of news for tech sites normally focuses on metal stuffs.
    Previously we had an article how to take care of Alcantara fabric. Today, it's about pets.
    I'm loving this direction that W Central also focuses on people and life around tech as well.
    Well done!
  • Awwwe!!! All of the pairs are cute! Much love!😍😍😍💗💗💗
  • 😍 Kawaii
  • Cute cat!
  • Lmao, this article. Awesome
  • I have a photo of my cat with full butt-on contact with my work iPhone. I took the picture with my Lumia 1520. Yes, I did wipe it down.
  • lovely  
  • Never knew Daniel had a turtle.
  • I know this has little to do with tech...but I really enjoyed it! Maybe their can be another installment  - People with Apple devices and hammers?
  • Isn't that a Youtube series called "Will It Blend"?
  • Loved this sort-of non-tech article! (To me it's TONS more interesting than the gaming articles.) Loved the picture of the grey cat's head on the backlit keyboard. And I will REALLY love it when we can get back to articles about Windows on some sort of portable phone device!
  • Aww so cute! This brightened up my day
