Hiya GT! Here in the south we’re thinking about local fairs, bonfire season, hurricanes, and cuddling up with our Fur Faces as the temperature drops. Note: If you’re anywhere near Hurricane Matthew, please be safe and let us know that you’re safe.

It’s also nearly Halloween, and I thought I’d start asking for costume submissions early so that whichever of my Snout Sisters is in charge of the Oct. 28th post will have plenty to pick from! Show us your dressed up doggehs, kittehs, and all other pets!

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.

Now, onto last week’s winning Fur Faces!

Lexador, DIS FACE:

Enzo is just so majestic:

I just cannot even with Thor... What can I say? I’m a sucker for a speckled belly!

I’m still so excited about Mrs.Finch’s new darling:

Speaking of adorable pit mixes.... This is Sydney:

And finally, because cats are hilarious and awesome, let’s end with some kitteh butts!!


Note: entries don’t need to be costumes-only! Please post any/all cute pet pics, as always. I was just making a special request for costumed pets.
