Hello, lovers of squeaky, snappy, howly, slinky, purry and jowly critters of all spots and stripes! It’s time to dress up the week with some soopercute lil’ devils, just in time for Halloween.

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Xyl0c41n3, Chuckles, CBG, k2b, and Hannibal), 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. So let’s get a squee-liciously sweet peek at our creatures of the day, night and in between!

KK4Bama’s Cannoli is here to welcome us to the fluffy zone.

That’s it for now, all. But don’t pout if your furbaby didn’t get picked this time - we put on this little pageant of floof every week. So show us your scary faces, your funny faces, and your esoterically charming faces that only the really cool kids will get, and a happy and safe Halloween to all our glowy-eyed friendly fiends.
