Hello there, everybody and welcome to Fur Face Friday, where the cute makes the suck of the week all better.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, Vivlock, and Leahaven), 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 Friday the Thirteenth, folks, and it seems like we need all the luck we can get. Let’s see if last week’s Fur Faces can offer us any good vibes.
First, Marissa makes sure to make her offerings to the household Yonny whenever possible.
And we all know you can find good favor by rubbing the right belleh. ImmoralMinority’s Kirby has one on offer…
...as does Dr. Zoidberg’s Luna…
...and Ladybug could prolly help you hit the lottery with a tum like that…
...while booktart’s Dashiell promises you the silkiest of rewards.
HammerheadFistpunch’s bro and sis contend two bellehs are better than one:
honkhonkhonk’s Scout says you might as well take a shot with the feetz as well...
..but HappyBerry’s kitteh says she can give you a paw up.
TheOperaGhost’s Lexa might share her birthday wish.
Tofutti Klein’s Strudel will wave her magic feathers and do a spell for ya.
Tabbytown was kind enough to bring us the luck of new fur face, Clover.
This toad told myopicprophet that if all else fails, just lay low and blend in.
Last but not least, welcome Maya24’s oldkitteh-but-new-to-us Ollie, whom I will henceforth refer to as the Wizard of D’awwwws!
Keep those cuties coming, guys. We’re always happy to see more adorable floofs! Take care and be sure to surround yourself with lots of black cats and dogs and possibly birds or fish or whatever, or orange or white or cream or even some spotty stripey ones, just to be safe.
