Hello and happy Fur Face Friday on Juneteenth. Sorry for the delay – seems we’re all a little discombobulated by the state of the world these days.
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.
Life has been a bit of a horror show lately, but our pets are so good at making us feel better it’s scary. Let’s see last week’s performances.
Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird’s QuiQue is coming from inside the house!
TheRealBicycleBuick found an alien interloper riding the fence.
leahaven’s Tesla is juuust gonna wait over here in this box.
Krispy’s shelter friend KitKat has got down the lurk.
Andy “Cough, Cough” M-S gives us Nellie the gate – er, porchkeeper.
Duck Duck Grey Duck FTMFW!’s Bobarino is like, NO! DON’T GO INTO THE WOODS!
And RiceRocketeer Extraordinaire found the doggos that made a clean getaway.
That’s the show, folks. Let’s see what kind of act we can get out of your Fur Faces!
