Hello and welcome to Fur Face Friday, where sunny funny critters radiate the cute for all to see.

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. And it’s still kitten and puppy season and will be for a while, so the more support your favorite shelter or rescue gets, the better.

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.

It’s summer vacation for kids all over the country – time to spend having fun with friends and being oh so lazy. So let’s get down to the felines and hounds from last week’s edition, who are footloose and fancy free and really happy to see ya.

That’s it for this week, fur fans. Remember to take extra good care of your critters in the heat (where applicable) and try not to let them be too much of a bunch of couch purrtaters... but make sure you show us if they are because I’m sure it’s adorable! ;)
