Hey howdy, o critter lovers of the Kinjaverse. Once again it is Friday, thank Bast and Anubis and Thoth and all those other snouty, pointy-eared, be-feathered deities.
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, 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.
Y’all, election season is in full swing and things are going to be very serious. So let’s turn to last week’s beloved fur faces for comfort and a little totally made-up commentary on the state of the world.
BlazinAce – Doctor of Internal Combustion’s Garfield is unimpressed with the news cycle.
awesomeaustinv’s Buddy wants you to know how proud he is of you for engaging the process of giving him skritches.
oneavjoe caught this little bandit trying to steal an election, or something.
ysubassoon’s Darwin found evidence of tampering (because he couldn’t have possibly done it himself).
FishCopernicusV2’s kittehs and onlytwowheels’ doggos showed us how to practice proper social distancing in a queue.
Krispy’s shelter friend Aaron Purr leans neither left nor right, but directly forward.
...but poor Matt Dillon might need a while to get over this year.
415s30’s Sylvie put herself forth as a proponent of the wide open spaces.
And It’s Ginaaa’s Cosmo demonstrated how important it is to deliver your vote on time.
BrianGriffin’s Lincoln is giving us four score and seven seconds to deliver some proper pets.
Finally, a very important message from this eel Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird found: keep your chin up, even if it looks like we’ll end up in the soup again.
That’s the deal, eels. All’s we can do is keep swimming. So step right up and submit your candidates for the super bestest special-est fur face! (Spoiler alert: it’ll be an all-way tie.)
