What with this week marking US Thankgiving, a celebration associated with turkey, American-style football, Black Friday sales, and family dysfunction, Snout Selection has fallen to mrsfinch, a Canadian who got her Thanksgiving over with way back in October. But you have my felicitations, my American cousins! I hope the holiday was all you desired - festive, or restive, and certainly digestive!

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia, Edie Beale’s Pantsuit, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch), 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 any shelter or rescue site. I know I’m not the only one lurking on Petfinder!

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 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.

We must now address the Fur Faces of last week, a splendid collection as always, curated by my American cousin, the pantsuited Edie Beale.

Vivlock’s Jubilee never loses her focus.

Xylocaine’s Enzo flips us the bird as no one else can.

Seungri’s Molko is a dainty lady. A dainty lady with cold feetses.

Stranger Bird’s Welby can quit the ‘nip any time he wants to, man.

mooncaf’s pup and McCoy’s Demoralized Mistress’s Willa are calm and accepting;

whereas Nixon’s Umbrage’s Murphy is still not over it.

The Amiable Slut captured His Eminence and His Minimus at a quiet moment.

temporary’s handsome boy is the staunch and supportive Fur Face Chase:

And crunch_y has a new Fur Faced Friend. Glory be to god for dappled things!

Oh! I nearly forgot! Here is Krabby’s baby Walligator, getting his first bath!

He was born in the U.S.A.! Happy Thanksgiving, all! Let’s see those happy, overstuffed Fur Faces!
