Hi all, welcome to Fur Face Friday! A short week means I’m behind on everything by a day, but please don’t doubt my commitment to providing you some excellent animals and the chance to for you to share more with us!
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.
Let’s get on to last week’s best!
Piranha Plant’s Gidget has been enjoying the warm weather:
Bertolt Brechtiosaurus’s Beckett has been taking in the sun as well, though from indoors:
Some of our Fur Faces need to stay cool though, k2b’s kitties just got a cooling bed, and you can see Lal is excited:
Agrajag’s Gus got one as well, and is ready to lie down for a nap with everyone’s favorite Mandalorian (Sorry Canderous!):
Meanwhile, diplododicus’ Molly found an alternate way to stay cool:
Hannibal’s Fanny went to a Fido Fest, and while she managed to maintain her dignity, (and got a doggy sundae!), she spotted these pups who needed to cool off more immediately:
someoneatacura’s Penny looks like she would have hopped right in had she been there:
gerbilsoutofexile’s Lucie would have as well, if only to escape the vet!
(sounds like she was doing ok afterwards, but Allie is not helping!)
I’ve got no transition, for this one, so here have Jettgirl’s Piggie Smalls, with his friend Bohdi Sherman:
Jettgirl also posted a nice horse, but I’m going to share these beauties from simon-on-the-river instead:
In other non-household pet news, Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird’s office features this family of sandpiper cranes:
Hopefully those baby cranes stay safe, ImmoralMinority’s Kirby may be planning cross country trip to (Sun)chase them:
Let’s also thank Chuckles for his work last week with this pic of Olive’s uncle, Baxter:
And we would be remiss not to celebrate Beijinhos’ 1st birthday with BeakerC:
Sadly we also have two good cats to say goodbye to. Attack It! (fka SVVIP)‘s Molko passed after a life full of love at age 22 (still not enough!):
In addition, Krispy Porkchop lost one of their shelter kitties, Ripley:
There are always more animals in need of love though, and Krispy is definitely doing their part to make sure they are taken care of.
With last week done, it’s time for us to present us with the pet you love: Show us your Fur Faces!
