Welcome once again to Fur Face Friday, where we banish the humdrums with a feisty pitter patter of our own critters’ cute.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, 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, we 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 week to Valentine’s and we could all use a little extraordinary charm in our lives. Let’s see who can bring in a little beauty and truth from last week’s post.
First, Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird paid witness to some elegant horsing around.
YoucancallmeAL’s Ruby gave us the blepping of a lifetime.
XJDano’s Penny struck fearful squee into our hearts.
Dogsatemypants’ pupper cocked an ear to whimsy.
Chuckles’ Olive showed us the sophisticated way to blanket...
...and PumpkinSpies’ Boggs the self-reflective way...
...while kristinbytes’ Bindi demonstrated recursive beauty napping.
smobgirl’s Ellie shared the joy of happy flavors.
Krispy Porkchops’ shelter friend Coral surrendered to being one with the ball.
And 415s30 + oIIIIIIo (ง •̀_•́)づ)˚з°)’s Sylvie expressed the pure joy of love and noms.
Finally, a sad goodbye to Euphronia’s dog-by-boyfriend-proxy, who was clearly a ferociously cute and Very Good Dog, and left a little music in both their hearts.
That’s the thing for the week, all. Let’s round up some more of that super cute to get us through the next one.
