It’s Friday, which means it’s time for all of Kinja’s best pets to come out and play! It’s also a day that ends in ‘y’, which means it’s time for Kinja weirdness! I’m not talking about the fact Kinja is duplicating most of my replies, or that ominous bookmark thing, I’m talking about permalinks not actually liking to the relevant discussion post. It completely messes up my FFF selection and ordering routine. I open each post in a new tab, then go through and sort them, but broken permalinks means that instead I had to scroll through the comments many times to isolate the selections. So if I missed any awesome pics, I may have just accidentally scrolled through while clicking show more 80-zillion times.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered to join us as a snout selector! We had more submissions than openings, so we will be running a little lottery and announcing new selectors soon!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Xyl0c41n3, Chuckles, CBG), 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, Xyl0c41n3 set us up with a great selection, and we had a bunch of wonderful submissions, so let’s check out some favorites!
LastFirstMI has a new (unnamed as of last week) kitten!
Farscythe took time to remember another kitten, Explorer Bob, before he was adopted into his forever home (the adult cat is Chewy).
It was extremely hard not to make this picture of Gina-Bina’s extremely photogenic Cosmo (shown here demonstrating exceptional mechanical prowess) the top image.
Here PumpkinSpies Mr. Toomey shows a surprising interest in broccoli.
Don’t do it Mr Toomey! Old man Bush has the right idea here!
On the other hand, while not everyone loves broccoli, everyone loves a waterdog (as demonstrated by ImmoralMinority’s Toby).
However, not all dogs love water; Agrajag’s Gus showed little enthusiasm for his bath.
And Duck Duck Grey Duck’s Clyde considers water his mortal enemy.
(Fear the teeth of the the Tiger Corgi!)
quietandfierce’s cat is clearly displeased about something, but maybe not water.
I am told there is the rest of a dog hidden somewhere behind I am calm, but thanks’ Tammy Faye’s face.
k2b’s Laleh and teh ruh are celebrating two years in a loving household.
Simon-on-the-river3 brought us sheep among the ruins.
And NowIAmBecomeDeathDestroyerOfWorlds gaves us that rare and wonderful sight: CAT ON A LEASH!
As a bonus, their sister is fostering this charming litter of kittens (and their mom, not pictured).
That’s it for last week, it’s time to SHOW US YOUR FUR FACES!
