After a week that seemed to drag on forever, we’ve finally made it to Friday, and we can close the week out with fur faces of all sorts. That’s right, welcome to the Kinjaverse’s premier weekly pet post, FUR FACE FRIDAY! 


In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia MacNasty, Edie Beale’s Pantsuit, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch, facw or Xyl0c41n3), 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 any shelter or rescue site. I know I’m not the only one lurking on Petfinder!

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 you provided a bevy of cute, and it falls to me to select the highlights (apologies if I couldn’t pick your fur face, it’s hard to cut these down), so let’s take a look!

It’s after Memorial Day, which means the fur faces are having fun outside. ParkerPosaholic’s Rosie was getting her sea legs, and taking in the harbor from a boat.

FlutterDale’s FlutterPup took in the beach, and took issue with a dead horseshoe crab.

Andy M-S’s Nellie conducted detailed research on the thermal properties of concrete.

tasteothebitchpudding’s Max enjoyed the sun (and perhaps prepared to go to San Francisco?)

And let all behold the radiant glow of teamPenguin’s JJ, who provides a strong case for springing for an HDR monitor.

While ImmoralMinority’s Toby says it’s tug of war season.

That doesn’t mean fun stuff wasn’t happening inside though. Sweet Trav’s Chevy and Zora were prepped and ready for a birthday bash.

PumpkinSpies’ Gus is sadly not in good health, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t cute.

Chuckles provided us with the sad and happy origin story of Olive (an evil wizard did not give her that white blaze, at least as far as we know).

CindyLouCthulhu’s Rupert’s tail has achieved maximum floof.

We also had some sad news in last week’s post. AdamAntoinette lost their cat, this gorgeous feline.

Additionally, Gina-Bina shared the passing of their Kamora back in March, she was obviously a very good girl.

I’ve seen a couple of other posters lose their furry friends this week, so please feel free to share their pictures and stories in the comments so we can remember them.

That said, we also want to see pics of all your fuzzy (and not so fuzzy) animal friends, so please, SHOW US YOUR FUR FACES!
