Friday’s here! Seemed like a quick week to me, but I’ve hovered over my clock and confirmed it, which means it’s time for Fur Face Friday, bringing you the cuteness from across the Kinjaverse.
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, it’s the height of kitten and puppy (and other critter) season and it’s getting crowded! 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.
With that out of the way, let’s look at last week’s best!
We start with Flamingo83's Chiflado, Fur Face Friday’s favorite bear, who was having a good day in this picture. Sadly we got bad news on Tuesday. We will miss him.
We must continue however, and while we have lost a friend, Galileo Humpkins has brought us a new one, the beautiful baby Boston Ozzy (shown here bonding over their white blazes with the household cat)
One day, perhaps they will be as close as Bertolt Brechtiosaurus’ Tonk Patrol!
Now if you’ve ever read the boiler plate at the start of these posts, you know we select winners based on our whimsy, and today my whimsy is telling me that what we need are close in shots of some fine pets, so get ready to boop!
Here’s chuckles’ Olive
And his Apple
And EmmerdoesNOTrepresentme’s birthday girl Lily (boop!)
Not to mention k2b’s ruh
Cosmo was getting is getting up close with It’s Ginaa
While such a travesty fills the frame with Bella and her new bow
And finally, last week’s top pick Kiltedpadre’s Ruby, filling your screen with greyhound nose
Ruby wasn’t the only greyhound making an appearance though, OpposResidentLexusGuy brought this tightly clustered pack
Here’s I can’t wait to be dead’s Skittles, saying “get too close for my picture, and I’ll bite your lens off”
No such hostility from PumpkinSpies’ Boggs, who is laser focused on his racquetball
Moving outside, CarsofFortLangley had her first off leash fun
And diplodicus found some cows (bulls? steers? I really don’t know my bovine terminology)
Anyway, that’s it for last week! It’s time to show us your fur faces!
