Happy Friday, everyone! The news cycle this week has been a nonstop whirlwind of “are you effing kidding me?!?!” headlines. Just when I think things can’t get any crazier, they do. And boy, how they do! Luckily, it’s time for Fur Face Friday. So, come on in, sit back, relax and enjoy the cute!

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, mrsfinch, facw or Xyl0c41n3), 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.

And don’t forget, you can always visit last week’s post to see all the rest of these munchkins! Let’s get started with the winners!

First up is a FFF regular. Sir Boswell celebrated the Big 6 last week, but he’s still struggling with issues related to his time before finding his furever home with Mrs. Finch. Good thoughts sent his way would be much appreciated.

Next up is this girl with the gorgeous smile, Olive! Miss Olive adopted our Oppo friend, Chuckles, who himself got a little excited about his first trip to FFF. Check out last week’s post to see some of Olive’s fur brothers, sisters and cousins, including a VERY cute bully who likes napping sitting up.

Pumpkin Spies’ Gus continues to be on the mend. He’s finally taking his medicine without much fuss, and found much entertainment with this rascally bit of string.

Looks like there are some bun fans over on Oppo, too, as itschrome shared this GIANT bunny with us.

And as anyone who has seen one of the many Catlopnik posts, Oppo’s got a ton of cat people. WJalopy shared his very wise looking ginger cat, Atticus.

Speaking of eyes, Woodle’s Frizzy has eyes that can only be described as stunning. Look at this precious girl!

Then there’s lawlover’s Cat who enjoyed playing a rousing game of peekaboo!

Edu-petrolhead wowed us with his pooch, Malu, who might just moonlight as a model. He’s definitely got the look!

Taking a walk on the wild side, we come upon this smiling couple, Duchess and Blaze, who grinned affably for their human, bmorebellepartedeux.

MOAR BABY BUNS from Miss BeakerC! Don’t you just want to boop this snoot?

And finally, Miss Miasie made a deal with Nixon’s Umbrage. There is now a permanent spot on NU’s desk for this fine feline companion to lounge upon, though not without some quintessential kitty side-eye.

That’s it for this week, folks! It’s hard to choose when all your pets are so ridiculously cute. And for all you Oppos out there who have started participating, WELCOME! We’re so glad you’re here. Keep your fur faces coming. The comments are now open!
