Greetings all lovers of the adorable and photos thereof! Our Fur Face friends bring good cheer all the year ‘round. As we look towards the end of the calendar year, let’s take a little time to enjoy the fur faces in our world.
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.
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 usually a theme-based selector of snouts, but this week I’m feeling a bit more free. Still, I do have a few groupings to highlight. For instance, a few senior fur faces caught my eye this week.
TheRealBicycleBuck’s Chuey is full of dignity and adorableness that comes with years of practice.
The lovely Shy was dressed by Springboard in these charming PJs. Poor dear had some stitches that needed healing, but I think we all feel better now.
Some of our fur face friends are celebrating the festive season. I am digging MegMegMcGee’s friend’s pupper Miss Kiva and her stripey, stripey socks.
Cosmo of the perky ears is also showing a little Christmas spirit with their jaunty bow from It’s Ginaaa.
Posing for PumpkinSpies’ holiday message is the dapper Boggs.
This is a time of year when a lot of people go on road trips. QuiQue is all set for any trips Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird might want to take!
Oskar just finished a long trip from his life as a street pup in Puerto Rico to his new home with Lymond’s sister. To think he’s this cute with a bit of mange! Just goes to show that all diamonds (and doggos) are precious, whether polished or a bit rough.
Speaking of diamonds, here’s the a cat who is an absolute gem. Giving you all the classy and a little bit of sassy, it’s His Stigness’ Mufasa.
To wrap up the week, a new member of JustSmileandNod’s family. Welcome to Fur Face Friday, sweet Mochi!
And that’s only a few of the wonderful fur faces from last week’s post. I encourage you to check out every single one!
Best wishes to those who celebrate Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and other observances this coming week, and safe travels to all of you who are on the road.
Now it’s your turn to share your favourite photos of all the fur faces in your life. Bring on the cute!
