Happy Friday everyone, and happy three day weekend to those of you who get MLK day off on Monday! Here are your fur faces to start the weekend off right.

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.

As always you can check last week’s post to see the runners up, but here are your winners for this week!

Welcome to the tasteofthebitchpudding family, Pudge Jr!


Mimi_Krimi’s Alice is amazed at how crisp this folding is!


Alice in the North Pole’s Rugby is just checking if there’s any more soup.


I’ve always suspected that Gus is Liberace reincarnated.


And mrsfinch shared this lovely tribute to Fusspot she received from a wonderful friend.


And before we go, we need to make a very special Fur Face shout out to a special couple who will be moving very soon. Thank you for all of your service, Bo & Sunny! The White House won’t be the same without you there to greet the visitors!

Let’s see your furry faces for the week, everyone!
