We’ve made it to the fall season, everyone (autumn for you fancy people). Time for indoor snuggle times and thinking about your fur faces’ Halloween costumes! But for now, let’s bid the summer adieu and welcome in the changing season with some of the last summer pet pics!

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia, EdieBealesCostume, 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 last week’s winners, who had a summah!

Happy name week to Buster, the sunniest dog.

Firbank and Beckett spent their summer trying to come to a tie in the game of musical beds.

Kamora spent it maxin & relaxin in a hammock, becoming the envy of humans and animals alike.

BeakerC’s bun made the most of the state fair by winning Best of Breed!

Pulpoperdida’s Niece Cat had some strong feelings on dental health.

And clearly, Boswell is having a tough time adjusting to home life!

Sometimes I just want to add all of the pictures, but that’s why we send you over here!

Now bring us your fall time fur faces!
