Hey everyone, I’ve got good and bad news. The good news is that it’s Friday! The bad news is that Friday really should have been like Wednesday or something. Regardless, we’re here now which means it’s time for Fur Face Friday, so get ready for some cuteness (and prepare to show your own)!
Before we begin, we’re still recruiting for a new snout selector or two, sign up now for your chance to bring your own whimsy to our Fridays! To apply, shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, all that’s needed is authorship on a Kinja group blog (we’d prefer our normal homes of Groupthink, Balktalk, and Oppo, so that we don’t need to do as much ungreying). We’ll be selecting soon, so don’t delay!
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.
Anyway, moving along to last week’s post, we need to pic some winners so let’s get to it!
Here’s Toast giving Quasi Hatrack a full blast of those green (blue? yellow?) eyes:
Meanwhile a trick of the camera (I hope) allowed Gary to get boredalways with even more intensity:
No tricks here, just excellent shooting skills as Agrajag met up with Cozmo while out photographing things:
We aren’t lying in the boilerplate when we say it’s kitten season, check out Chuckles’ guests Elivs and Presley:
And look at this cutey courtesy of Jettgirl24:
Speaking of Jet(t)s, KK4Bama’s Jet was too tired to show his fur face, but his little brother Benny was front and center for the camera:
We has a special FFF double feature with Tofutti Klein’s Strudel and HoneyHeart’s Boo modeling the same stylish harness (I will never tire of cats on leashes!):
Not the only pair ready for the great outdoors though,The OperaGhost’s Lexa and Fluff are pleased for the arrival of summer!
And Blalock’s Kira is wondering if the distant (and well camouflaged) hawk would mind sharing (or becoming?) his meal:
Summer might be a bit hot for Bella though, as she’s clearly pleased such a travesty has an “upgraded” laptop:
Here’s Dante (fka Mexadog Jr) settling in to his new home with Lexador:
Meanwhile, back outside, we had a double helping of Disneyland ducks (and ducklings) from His Stigness and TamTams:
Those ducks should be careful though, since you never know which vicious predator might be lurking in the shadows (hint: It’s Harpur, though Bertolt Brechtiosaurus surely can’t see him):
Lastly, we didn’t get a pic, but we must say goodbye to Diego who Marissa lost last week. He sounded like a very special dog. (Feel free to share a photo in the comments)
With last week’s roundup complete, it’s time to Show Us Your Fur Faces!
