Greetings, citizens of the Kinjaverse. Here we are, having ourselves a Friday, after another long week. Time to thank the stars above for all the cute little friends we have to come home to, and revel in a surge of healing endorphins.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, 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 Kinjaverse, because it has been scientifically documented that looking at pictures of cute animals reduces stress.
Speaking of stress, shit is STILL fucked up, peeps. So it’s time for the late summer/back to school (?!) release CUTE BOOTIE APOCALYPSE MOVIE PART II: THE FLOOFENING!
It’s chaos out there, and Ginaaa’s Cosmo is making a delightfully goofy run for it.
Kiltedpadre’s Cornbread will probably get there first though, averting danger with sheer sprinteriferousness.
Shelter cats Max and Leo will go tandem and cover for each other.
Full of the sound of Gran Fury, signifying nothing’s Rocky is psyching himself up to be a hero.
CTSenvy’s yard kitten is just gonna play possum.
Arch Duke Maxyenko’s Buster will dig his way out of trouble.
Ladybug’s Isaac is suiting up for stealth.
PumpkinSpies’ Boggs says “quick – hide in here!”
Tofutti Klein’s Sugarbear and Strudel will be on patrol.
Just to be safe, this doggo Mimi_Krimi (kinda) knows will be minding the perimeter.
And farscythe’s Chewy says “screw it, it’s the end of the world and I’m having Cheetos dammit!”
Roll credits for all the feisty, silly, brave and crazy critters who keep us entertained so we don’t go insane. Who are your furry little heroes this week?
