Welcome to Fur Face Friday! This is my first ever week Snout Selecting and I’m so excited to share some of the excellent faces from last week.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, Vivlock, 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, I 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. And it’s still kitten and puppy season and will be for a while, so the more support your favorite shelter or rescue gets, the better.
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.
There were so many wonderfully smooshy, fuzzy, boopable, and adorable faces to choose from that it was a tough (but really awesome) job selecting the snouts!
This week, being summer, lots of our companions and chance encounters took place outside. I’ve picked a few lovelies who were out in the wild, and here they are for you to enjoy.
First up: a patio break. Zi, who lives with Lexador’s parents, deserves all the patio chill time because she’s training for something super important - being a guide dog!
What if you prefer a swim? The Opera Ghost met a turtle who’ve got you covered:
415s30 + oIIIIIIo (ง •̀_•́)づ)˚з°)‘s Sylvie would rather be playing with her sticks than having her photo taken. Life is full of difficult compromises, Sylvie.
Mimi_Krimi’s Bob knows that it’s important to get rest when hanging out in the wilds of the backyard.
Andy “The Folding Attorney” M-S caught sight of a neighbour, who was taking a break in the shade.
Hope was trying to get an outdoor nap in (in her begrudgingly-tolerated leash) when vondon302 interrupted with the camera.
Bindi went to theatre in the park with kristinbytes and ate All The Snacks! Who could resist giving that sweet face a treat?
Okay, fine, Ladybug isn’t exactly outside but as her person, Ladybug the ninja cat, points out, she is in a garden of sorts (anyway, who could resist all that floof?).
Happy Berry has the loveliest little toads living in her lawn. Never mow that lawn again, Happy Berry!
And finally, here’s Gino on his camping trip with myopicprophet.
I hope that you all have a moment this week when you feel as content as Gino is here, in his wilderness paradise.
It’s been a real pleasure seeing all your wonderful beasties in their furry, feathered, or fuzzy glory. Share your latest lovelies in the comments!
