Happy Friday, everyone! And happy long weekend, fellow Americans! May your weekend be filled with sunshine, grilled foods, great company, and multiple fur face sightings!

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.

The competition this week was fierce, so go check out last week’s post if you can’t get enough cute. They’re all winners in my heart!

If you thought I was going to start with anything other than KK4Bama’s adorable Princess Poppy Winks, you can leave now.


Chuckles, how do you not just spend every moment with Tamba smooshing that face?


I’m really looking forward to teamPenguin’s The Shining reboot starring JJ.


Lawlover’s cat has some words of encouragement to send you off into the weekend with.

Now before you flaunt it, show us your fur faces!
