Hello and happy Fur Face Friday, where all y’all get a chance to squee your cares away after a long 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.
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.
Speaking of stress, I’m sure we are all pretty worn out by dealing with hoomans and their attitudes. But this week’s fur faces get some latitude for their attitude because OMIGOD THE CUTE IS EVERYTHING.
Oh, deer! Call the caterers! vondon302’s new friend just felt entitled to a garden party for one.
such a travesty’s Bella is a naughty fairy pupper and her ’tude is too magical to deny.
Periwinkle’s sitting client Simon is concerned about your behavior.
Krispy Porkchops’ shelter buddy Payday is concerned about everything, and needs pets to help her feel better.
HisStigness’s Mufasa says you have his attention. Amuse him.
Bertolt’s Harpur, Baron von Smushyface says you had BETTER be paying attention.
mwittier’s Soote Sisters, bless them. Just clowning and showing their butts.
Kiltedpadre’s Edgar tells us he means business, though...
...while Dogsatemypants Sophie is very much like a boss.
Chuckles’ new niece
Lula Luna? Hey, she’s just happy to be here.
A sad goodbye to simon’s neighborhood cat Charles, who I’m sure gave attitude until his last moment. May his ’tudinous tomcat reign be an example to us all.
That’s the thing for now, peeps. Show us your cutie patootie, wiggly bootie, classy beauty and sometimes snooty little friends.
