The Felines came out in force last week but I couldn’t highlight them all. I had to include some other pals in the interest of solidarity, as per the Super Unofficial Fur Face Rules. My apologies; I urge you all to go have a look at all the purrfect that Xyl0c41ne coaxed out of their hiding places last week.

ETA: The bottom picture is an “in memoriam” for Speakingdoubledutch’s Madagascar Roach. It’s been pointed out to me that this may startle some people, so I’m letting you all know.

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.

Let the booping begin!

While it would be logical to assume that a cat would win, I believe Dr. Sattler’s Liz’s face speaks for us all. Feel better, Liz.

A close second is the face of CindyLou’s Fred Astaire.
