Everyone, it’s been a long week. You know what helps a long week? A furry little face staring at you and reminding you it’s time for food. Pets, they always know how to prioritize.

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia MacNasty, Edie Beale’s Pantsuit, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch, facw or Xyl0c41n3), 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 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.

Now before we check out this week’s competitors, let’s take a look at last week’s winners!


Congratulations to Frank The Tank for being adopted, and thanks to Piranha Plant for introducing us to this adorable hippo!

And the Fur Face team sends our deepest condolences to BeakerC, who lost our favorite bun, Emmett. We watched him grow up, it was far too soon. We will miss you, Emmett.
