Hello, and welcome to another installment of Fur Face Friday. I’m Chuckles, your snout selector for the week. This one might be a little bit abbreviated due to a combination of the heat and my dying laptop. It might be time to upgrade after a good decade of use. But first! We have some news:
After a very extensive search, I am happy to report that we are welcoming three new snout selectors into the rotation! Welcome Iroqdemic, Vivlock, and Leahaven! Thank you for stepping up and volunteering, and we look forward to seeing your contributions soon.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, Vivlock, and Leahaven), 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 Petfinder or any other shelter or rescue site. If you’re like me, you probably know people doing some good rescue/foster/support work in your area, so please feel free to share the love and the fluff from your hometown. And it’s still kitten and puppy season and will be for a while, so the more support your favorite shelter or rescue gets, the better.
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.
Hannibal did a great job with last week’s post. Let’s take a look at a few of those adorable snoots before we move on to this week’s batch:
Booktart’s Dashiell was very naughty, but I don’t think I could stay mad at that face for very long:
The Infamous Periwinkle shared some great shots of Mateo, who looks like he might be a distant, ginger cousin of QuiQue:
Everybody enjoys a nice comfy nap, even pigs! Here’s Jetgirl24's Piggie Smalls:
Such a Travesty was kind enough to share a few long overdue pictures of Bella with us. Here she is looking good in the grass:
I know that we showcased Springboard’s new kitty just last week, but this picture was shared late last week and I don’t think that enough people got to appreciate it:
Tofutti Klein’s Sugarbear has some serious TEEF! I’m seeing shades of Gmork from the Neverending Story here:
YoucancallmeAL’s Otis might not have serious teeth, but he’s got a very serious blep:
Poncho Denew’s Maisie decided to show off some majestic floof. She also wants to talk to you about the pack of Swisher Sweets that she found in your pocket:
TheOperaGhost’s Lexa got a new bed. And by Lexa, I mean Fluff got a new bed:
And lastly, we have PumpkinSpies’ Boggs, a cat truly at peace with the world:
And that’s it for this week’s edition of Fur Face Friday! Please be careful during this heat wave and remember to keep your furry friends cool and hydrated. Now show us your Fur Faces!!!
