Oh the weather outside is frightful

But our pets are so delightful

And since we’ve no place to go

Boop that nose, boop that nose, boop that nose!

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.

And if you have some supplies you can donate to your local animal shelter, remember to check out accordingto’s donation guide.

We missed out on winners last week, so you get double the fun this week!
