Welcome to October, everyone! It’s the month for warm shades of orange, red and yellow, and the beginnings of sweater weather. It’s the month of pumpkin spice EVERYthing (I may have had a few PSLs already). And of course, it’s the month of Halloween and Día de los Muertos! I can’t wait to see what costumes y’all have for your fur babies this year. Anyway, this is Fur Face Friday, your weekly dose of cute featuring all the bestest pets on kinja


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.


Anyway, onward with this week’s winners! (TW: There is a photo of a spider near the end).


Like many of us, Boswell is growing weary of the world (thanks 24 hour news cycle). He was sure to let MrsFinch know:

Chuckles’ Tamba is definitely ready for the fall. Psst, Tamba: I like crunching autumn leaves beneath my tootsies, too!)

Now here’s someone who tried to get a head start on the Halloween costume game and realized they’re not a unicorn after all. It’s ok, Asher, I’m sure you and your human KK4bama will figure something out. Meanwhile, we’re laughing WITH you, sweet pea!

Speaking of black cats and Halloween, farscythe’s Chewy is already working on his best spooky eyes. All the better to greet trick-or-tweeters with! (That was an autocorrect but it’s too good to fix).

And vondon302 got lucky when it comes to Halloween-themed yard decorations, as a wonderful orb weaver spider spun a beautiful web in his garden!

PumpkinSpies and her lovely kitty Gus are getting an early start on Día de los Muertos with this lovely Día and Gus coloring page! What a great idea, Pumpkin!

That’s it for this week, folks! Last week’s FFF had so many amazing pets and special guests from trips to the zoo and our country’s wonderful wild spaces. They’re ALL winners, IMHO! So please go check them out if you haven’t already:

And now, show us your fur faces!!!
