Hi all! A short week for those of in the US means Fur Face Friday got here before I knew it! I still expect a full week of cute critters in the comments though! In any event, let’s get to it!
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.
Last week’s emergency post by k2b attracted all sorts of good submissions from folks who weren’t afraid to “work” late even on a holiday weekend, so let’s check out the winners!
Here’s Fanny and a new nemesis Hannibal has provided her:
Meanwhile LadySparrow picked up a new Coil, who is definitely not Spring’s nemesis:
Springboard actually spent a night at the London Zoo, and brought us a whole bunch of interesting subjects, including this penguin:
That wasn’t the only water-going dinosaur we had though, Mimi_Krimi provided us with this duck:
Despite hanging out by the water, Piranha Plant’s Gidget would like to dispute any assertions that she is yet another seabird:
LastFirstMI’s Clem thinks it’s still too hot for the beach, but knows that kitchen floors tend to stay cool:
And Periwinkle’s Jax is willing to hang out wherever the most petting is available:
HappyBerry would have us know that Em is the prettiest kitty:
Kiltedpadre’s Ruby knows I can’t resist pets in silly clothing:
But I’m also partial to silly faces, like KhaliBats’ Rainbow:
And silly poses like this one from PumpkinSpies’ Boggs:
Wrapping up, the Infamous Periwinkle sent a bunch of pics of Zoe, so that we could all say goodbye:
That’s all for last week, it’s time to Show us your Fur Faces!
