Sweet merciful goodness, it’s finally Friday! We’ve made it another week, everyone! What’s funny is that looking back at last week, Krabby had a very similar reaction to the end of the week. So I’m gonna reward you with some winners and shield my eyes from the unseasonably warm sun.

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia, Edie Beale’s Pantsuit, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch), 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 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.

On to the winners!


Falafel Apostle’s Emmie is basking in the warm glow.


Piranha Plant’s Gidget and Baxter are milking this sunshine for all it’s worth.


Gus just can’t handle all this light without his sunnies.


Gretchen knows a few cats so goth that they are just not having any of this sunshine nonsense.


And Rooo gave us some very evergreen advice.


Your turn now, gimme fur faces!
