Hello friends and furry faces alike! It’s that time again, so bring on the adorable little faces and fluffy tails (or stumps, stumps are good too).

You know the rules: Favorites are chosen by me alone, entirely on my own whim. However, in the interest of GT solidarity, I select one dog picture and one cat picture (minimum!) each week. Other pets will also of course be considered. I love all your rats, bunnies, ferrets and other furry pals. I WILL NEVER DISCRIMINATE AGAINST CUTE. As always, I am happy to dismiss any pictures if you decide you want them taken down at some point.

Side note: 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 any shelter or rescue site. I know I’m not the only one lurking Petfinder!

And now for everyone’s favorite part, a peek at last week’s winners!

Welcome to the family, Lisa Lexador!

token_liberal got this awesome shot of moose (meese) having a bath.

scarletwine’s mom’s barncat says, “Hay.”

PlentyOfPaper’s little Sepia has had it.

CindyLouCthulhu has some kind of sorcery up her sleeve that allows potted plants and cats to coexist. Read her tips here!

Sorcia, of course your loves get a shout out!

Stocking up for a bitch shortage’s Edgar reminds me of goth kids at a family picnic.

Lovely Subversive Feminist’s foster kittens are just waiting to swat at that toy!

Gretchen’s dog Pepper is doing the best impression of all of us!

Ahhh there were too many cute faces last week! It was impossible to decide (but it’s a task we must do), so go look at them all here.

And a reminder to everyone out there with pets thanks to Countess Von Fingergbang’s post, now that the temperature is rising and heat stroke is a real possibility. Our lovely FFF hostess with the mostess has passed on this link for what to do for pets with heatstroke. And over at The Vane, Dennis Mesereau reminds us not to leave our pets and kids in hot cars, not even for a couple of minutes. Be mindful and stay cool this summer, everyone!
