Happy Fur Face Friday, everyone! I hope you all managed to survive yesterday’s deluge of carbs and chatty relatives. It’s been a rough week for a lot of people, so let’s take a few minutes to relax and admire some adorable furry faces before we get on with our day. Thank you for your patience, as there were some technical difficulties at Snout Selector HQ today. I guess that’s what happens when your IT support consists of a couple of Torties and a Pekingese Mix!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Xyl0c41n3, Chuckles, CBG, k2b, and Hannibal), 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.
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. So let’s find a moment of joy in these, our little endorphin-enabling wonders.
k2b did a splendid job with last week’s post, so please check it out if you missed it. I’m still recovering from yesterday’s food coma, so the selections this week might be a little abbreviated. But don’t think that means that I didn’t enjoy looking at every single picture you posted last week! Here are just a few of my favorites:
CodCoFanBurnsAgain took us on a road trip with their well behaved Bun:
If you thought there was only going to be one Bun this week, you are sorely mistaken. BeakerC shared several great Bun pics with us, including these three adorable floofballs:
But it’s not all Buns around here. Flamingo83 shared a picture of our favorite bear, Chiflado. He’s a little scared of cats, even fake ones:
Meanwhile, His Stigness shared this picture of Mufasa, a cat so fearless that he likes to sleep in the mouth of a shark:
We showed you a bear afraid of cats, but how about a cat named bear? Tofutti Klein’s Sugarbear got tangled up in a devious viral marketing scheme for ginger beer:
Some cats can’t be bothered with advertising. Simon-on-the-river3 introduced us to Cookie, a 3 legged cat who is Queen of all she sees and who doesn’t have time for your nonsense:
From a Queen to a Prince. PumpkinSpies introduced us to Stuart last week, and I think we’re all looking forward to seeing much more of the adorable little guy in the future. I think that PS picked a great name with a lot of nickname potential (Stu-ball, Studebaker, Stu-wy Lewis and the News, Beef Stu, just to name a few):
So far we’ve seen some buns, a few cats, and a bear. But don’t think that I’ve forgotten about the dogs! Here’s It’s Ginaaa’s Cosmo to the rescue. He’s tired of all of this napping and he’s ready to get up and make the most of his day:
We were also happy to learn last week that ParkerPosaholic’s Lucy is doing better after a recent health scare. Here she is resting. Hopefully PP is spoiling her as much as possible:
Sadly, we had to say goodbye to several Fur Faces in the past week. Hannibal A Portas had to say goodbye to her beloved Corgi on Monday, and Hannibal the Younger’s cat also crossed over the Rainbow Bridge:
Blammobiddy also had to say goodbye to Linus this week, an adorable little sweetheart that had to leave too soon:
And that’s it for this week’s edition. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of your animals dressed up in adorable turkey costumes. I hope that everyone that celebrated Thanksgiving had a great day, and now please show us your Fur Faces!
