Hey there, everybody, and guess what? It’s officially springtime! Time for the birds to sing and the flowers to bloom and our minds to wander - and that’s something all our cute little fluffywuffy scalytaily featheryfluttery friends can enjoy. Huzzah!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, 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 without further ado, let’s bask in the magical world of squee from last week’s pics of our little life-affirming friends. First up, a trio of divine cuteness.
PumpkinSpies’ Boggs puts his best foots forward in his imitation of the spring break god Floppus:
...while MattHurting’s Sydney portrays Afurdite, goddess of lovable bellehs.
Tabbytown’s Holly is Hissya, the protector of the hearth and also, erm, cabinetry. Yeah.
And guys, mrsfinch’s heroic Boswell, like Achilles, is having a little trouble with his legbones. Send him a little love.
Maybe Shamoononon drives like a farmer’s Jack could work him up a little leprechaun magic.
O.C. The Torque Dork has some adorable little puppy-shaped sprites looking for mischief.
Duck Duck Grey Duck’s Clyde comes with fairytale captions, even.
And Galileo Humpkins’ story is black and white and floofy all over.
Tofutti Klein’s Strudel, on the other hand, doesn’t love Sugarbear’s imposition on her queenly mountain.
But Area Cat reminds us all that love is what springtime’s all about.
That’s it for this week’s furrytime fun. We’ll do it again next week, of course. And remember, spring is the start of puppy and kitten season, so there will be a lot of brand new baby animals in need of a happy ever after. Much love and thanks to any and all who do their part.
