Hello and happy Fur Face Friday, where you get great deals on all the cute you can handle.
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.
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.
So it’s Black Friday, kicking off the Official Shopping Season for the Christmas holidays - though heaven knows that stores have been pimping sales for a nigh-eternity already. Odds are you’ll hear the music of the season piping in everywhere, watch a few holiday movies and start dreaming of what Santa might bring. For now, we have memories of fur faces past (last week in particular) to get us through.
To get us started, simon-on-the-river’s Tiddly sends you warm Yule greetings from the wild.
myopicprophet’s Gino still has that post-turkey crash look.
But such a travesty’s Bella is NOT DONE with the turkey at all. AND SHE MEANS IT.
In entertainment news, diplodicus found a kitteh auditioning perfectly for the part of Clarence the Angel...
...while Agrajag’s Gus is going for the “oops I spilled water on the Mogwai” vibe.
Krispy Porkchops’ shelter buddy Jose (or maybe Carlos?) has found the perfect ledge for stockings, as evidenced by his feetz fitting juuust right...
...and Sweetie has adjusted to the amenities and is making her shopping list already.
Dogsatemypants shrimp babies are tiny enough, but probably not good stocking stuffers.
HappyBerry’s Roxie is practicing her “staying in bed like a good girl” routine for when Santa comes...
...while Azrek’s Autumn practices at slyly peeping from the bed for reindeer.
And It’s Ginaaa’s Cosmo is working on his cold-Christmas-morning blanket-swathing technique.
Of course LadySparrow’s grandkitten (?) just looks forward to time off with friends.
That’s it for this week, all. Do stay safe in the winds and snow and mad shoppers and remember, lots of little toe beans will be cold too. So think of giving to your shelters and rescues this season if you can.
