I inter-pupt your regularly scheduled Fur Face purr-gramming to bring you a very special Snout Selecting Edition led by... me! Thank you so much to KrabbyPaddy and the rest of the Snout Selectors for giving me the opportunity to bring a bit of fluff and love into my otherwise cranky workday! I hope I can do it right < looks at last week’s FurFaces and squeals loudly > ... yep, I’m doing it right!

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.

All snouts are winners (but not all snouts are wieners), so I regret that I cannot select all of last week’s amazing Fur Faces! Here are some of many good boys and girls the universe sent to us last week.


Never fear; mwittier’s long-suffering Olive was successfully desmooshed after this picture was taken, and fierce Lorna is not the slightest bit sorry for smooshing her.

London has double-decker buses; KK4Bama has double-decker cats Asher and Koala.

Cats are weird. Don’t believe me? Ask Tofutti Klein’s Strudel.

My bird IS the word’s Bonnie went for a magic car-pet ride.

Frankenberry and vondon302 brought us photos of some of the local wildlife! (Spider pic ahoy!)

Don’t even dream of sitting on Chuckles’ Calvin the Catloaf’s comfy chair.

Penguin’s JJ and Sheba share a Halloween boo-p.

EL_ULY’s pupper looks like he could use a boop, too. Who’s a good doggy? You are!

Finally, a tribute in memory of PumpkinSpies’ Gus and all the furry friends waiting for us across the rainbow bridge.

I’m not crying. You’re crying.

You all know what to do!
