Aye...go have a mighty craic, ya buncha lovely hooligans! Fur Face Friday shenanigans luckily happened to have fallen to me, yer own KrabbyPADDY, for this most beloved Irish American holiday: The Feast of Saint Patrick*. (It’s a Catholic Saint’s Day everywhere, but, you know...)

My understanding is that we Irish Americans have turned this Saint’s Day up to 11 as a touchstone of heritage. ELEVEN! Edie’s post last week turned a sleepy spelling error in to Christmas in March:) So great!

This week, I will NOT be above making whiskey jokes in honor of our Furry Friends, but I officially & firmly denounce green beer on their behalf & on principle~

Now, off to the Parade ya go; and mind yer manners.

*There is a Papal Dispensation for Lenten Friday Saint Patrick’s Day. You are ALLOWED to eat the Corned Beef today. Enjoy without guilt!

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia MacNasty, Edie Beale’s Pantsuit, KrabbyPaddy or 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 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.

Bring us your Faces, right now!!! xo
