Happy Fur Face Friday, everyone! Let us gather and celebrate all the wonderful faces that were shared in last week’s comments and share new photos of fur covered cuteness.
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 have had the joyful task of reviewing all the fur faces of last Friday, and I’ve selected a few faces to highlight the extraordinary adorableness that was on display.
For instance, here’s Marlin. Marlin lives at the shelter where Krispy Porkchop volunteers, and he has a grin that just makes me smile back.
Companionable canine cuddles at DirtyDodge’s place
Hannibal A Portas’s Fanny hung out with a fashionable pal - who can resist dogs in people clothes!
Camera-shy Firbank couldn’t avoid Bertolt Brechtiosaurus’ mad papparazzi skills forever - and we’re all the better for it!
Luna is looking awfully adorable, though I’m wondering if Dr. Zoidberg should check all the breakables.
Olive is making the most of her lap time with Chuckles. She’s putting out 150% cute here.
Coin-operated squirrel asked us to guess if Tsuki’s belly got rubbed. My answer: how could it not, with that perfect rumple and adorable pose?
And finally, as we wind up the first full week of the new year, one last photo. Let us remember the year-end where some of us chose to get dressed up, spent time in big groups or with people we don’t see all that often, ate so many treats, and then felt a little overwhelmed by it all. I present His Stigness’ Mu, who is all of us.
That’s just a few of the fabulous fur faces shared in the comments last week. You can find the whole menagerie here.
And now it’s your turn. Share the wonderful pets, wildlife, and animal videos that bring joy to your life in the comments below!
