Happy Friday to all of you lovers of furry faces! It’s been seven long days since we last gazed into the world of cute together, so let’s get down to some serious adorableness.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, and Leahaven), entirely on our own whimsy. WHIMSY. However, in the interest of solidarity, we try to select one dog picture and one cat picture (minimum!) each week. Other pets will also, of course, be considered. We love all your rats, bunnies, ferrets and other furry, feathery & finny pals. WE WILL NEVER DISCRIMINATE AGAINST CUTE. As always, we’re happy to dismiss any pictures if you decide you want them taken down at some point.
If you don’t have a pet of your own to feature this week, we highly recommend featuring and linking to any cuties who are available for adoption and looking for a home on Petfinder or any other shelter or rescue site. If you’re like me, you probably know people doing some good rescue/foster/support work in your area, so please feel free to share the love and the fluff from your hometown.
In that sharing spirit, if you don’t have a pet but want to participate, drop off your best Internet find of an animal .gif or meme or tweet in the comments. The more animal lovers, the merrier :) Speaking of sharing, feel free to share these posts anywhere in the Kinja-verse, because it has been scientifically documented that looking at pictures of cute animals reduces stress.
I’m pleased to be your Snout Selector from the fantastic collection of beasties in last week’s comments, because it means spending lots of time with these faces. Here’s a few that gave me a big smile:
Tabbytown introduced us to long-time friends Strawberry and Blueberry, seen here in warmer days. Rescue bunnies make great buddies!
Someone decided to tuck their paws away where no one, even Pulpo Perdida, could find them! Sneaky, sneaky kitty.
Snoozing was definitely on my mind this week, and several of our fur faces were showing off their nap skillz:
Bertolt Brechtiosaurus’ birthday boy Harpur
Kiltedpadre’s Ruby a.k.a. SuperSnoot
Periwinkle’s friends Ziti & Daisy
And now for a section I call Fur Face Fashion, featuring
the always well-dressed Kiva, who was MegMegMcGee’s BFF’s valentine
EmmersdoesNOTrepresentme’s pup, who know a good shoe when she sees one
And modelling this season’s must have accessory, SmugAardvark’s Pepper Potts (wishing you speedy healing of that ear)
and His Stigness’ Mufasa
This week, we send sympathies to Krispy Porkchops and all the volunteers at the shelter on the passing of Punkin. Goodbye sweet girl, you were very loved.
So now I turn it over to you to share your fur faces with the world. Celebrate all the cute, goofy, and sweet that makes you smile!
