Hello and happy Fur Face Friday the thirteenth, everybody, where our sweet pets make us feel lucky in spite of it all.
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.
For those of us in the U.S. of Arrrrrggghhhh!!!!, it’s the first week of Daylight
Saving Scamming Time, in which some dudes who never have to get up early decided that everybody else should be more in the dark when they do, possibly so they will be too discombobulated to realize they’d get a lot more sunshine with a shorter work week. I might have opinions on the matter, and I’mma let the animals from last week’s post present some notions about screwing with The Schedule.
Natface’s Mortimer is wondering if you’re serious.
TAFKANowIAmBecomeDeath’s Millie is not having it:
such a travesty’s Bella isn’t either:
Bellamy is perfectly comfy as the keeper of Squirrel’s knees.
And His Stigness’ Mufasa likes his blankies just fine and will keep them, thank you very much.
Violet Baudelaire’s Colonel says it’s definitely still bedtime.
Krispy Porkchops’ shelter cats Erle Stanley and Payday concur.
Dr. Zoidberg’s Luna likes not getting up just fine.
And Mimi_Krimi’s Bob... get up now?! THE HORROR…
Tofutti Klein has even seen some more exotic creatures lion around.
But hey – CB is going to wake up to this cutie patootie, so it ain’t all bad.
That’s it for this week. Be sure to share your wacky, wonky, wonderful animals getting used to the silly things we humans do, or just doing their own thing.
