Hello and happy Fur Face Friday, where we know all the coolest party animals.
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.
It’s a whole new year, everyone, and hopefully we’ve all had a chance to at least rest up and relax a bit before the next three hundred and sixty-something days of mayhem. Let’s see what kind of creature comforts were shared over the holidays.
Here’s Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird’s QuiQue, partying like the naughty boy he is.
qbeezy’s dog buddies were on best behavior, though (while everyone was looking, anyway).
booktart’s Dashiell was ready to treat himself to what was in his stocking.
Tabbytown’s Clover let her floof flag fly with OH MY GAWRSH DAT TAIL!
His Stigness’ Mufasa boogied down with a snowman...
...while leahaven’s Tesla did a funky solo routine.
Springboard’s Luna was just dazzled by it all.
In a more relaxing setting, Mimi Krimi found this capra grigia (gray goat) enjoying the winter scenery.
Hey there, Highlander – Datsuns are forever’s sib-dog, it’s not polite to point! Oh, I guess unless you’re an actual pointer.
That’s it for the new year’s cutie pie parade. Go ahead and float a little more adorable our way.
