Welcome to the place of Fur Faces! As the weather gets cooler around where my Tesla-cat and I lay our heads, I just want to snuggle up with all the adorable fur- (and feather- and fish-) friends from last week’s comments. Without further ado, let’s do this thing!
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.
To help me highlight some of the excellent Fur Faces from last week’s comments, I have chosen to focus on buddies. Wait, you say, all our fur-friends are our buddies! But are they buddies with each other? Double your cute, people, double your cute!
First we have Duck Duck Grey Duck FTMFW!’s two buddies expressing A Mood:
Dogsatemypants has a tank full of buddies at their house:
Hannibal A Portas’s Fanny ran into an old friend last week. It’s always wonderful to catch up with a buddy after a long time apart.
The wild turkeys in vondon302's yard are probably siblings, but we can be buddies with our siblings as we grow up, right?
Figgy here is really chuffed to be hanging with her buddy Olive, thanks to Chuckles’ travels.
The Soote Sisters are on patrol in mwittier’s yard. The buddy system is important when scouting new grass.
Cat and dog buddies at sn0wslay3r’s house. Buddies come in all shapes, sizes, and species!
I want to make a special mention of Ollie, who was the beloved companion of Maya24. Ollie passed away recently and he will be deeply missed. May you be surrounded by catnip and sunshine beyond the rainbow bridge, Ollie. Our sympathies are with you, Maya.
Now it’s your turn to share your buddies in the comments below. Let’s see all those adorable fur faces!
