Gooooooooooooooood morning (or afternoon) kinjateers!!! And welcome to the last edition of Fur Face Friday for the year! 2017 has had its highs and lows, but FFF has been an uplifting, fuzzy, snoot-filled constant of cute through it all.
Last week, Miss Krabby announced the emeritus status of snout selectors, Sorcia McNasty and Edie Beale’s Pantsuit while simultaneously putting out a call for new snout selectors. As a result, we here at FFF headquarters are proud to announce the addition of CHUCKLES to the team! You may recognize Chuckles as the hooman who belongs to the sweet pooch, Olive. Welcome to the fold, Chuckles! Can’t wait to see your first post.
With news and announcements out of the way, let’s recap what FFF is all about:
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch, facw, Xyl0c41n3 or Chuckles), 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.
Welp, that’s enough of that. Onward with last week’s winners!
FluterDale announced the welcoming of a new FluterPup to her household. Welcome to FluterHeaven, FluterPup!
Puppy dog eyes are kryptonite to many a hooman, and KK4Bama is no exception. Her pooch decided to make his very own foam party inside his crate by rending a pillow to ribbons. But, who can stay mad at him with those puppy dog eyes?
TheOperaGhost’s Lexa is just begging for belly rubs. I volunteer as tribute!
Speaking of belly rubs, everyone knows it’s a game of risk to give a belly rub to a kitty cat, but boobiechick’s Motto offers such a tempting, floofy belleh!
12/10 would risk catastrophic claw damage to my scritchin’ hand!
Then there’s Steve’s Very Good Boy™ Binkie, who got into the Christmas spirit and lent his puggy expertise to the decorating!
But not all pets are Christmas experts right away, as Tom.Cruise.IsWeird’s QuiQue demonstrated with the Christmas tree. 13/10 would show this embarassing photo to all of QuiQue’s friends.
From the awkwardly entangled, to the quietly regal, we move on to a submission from our newest Snout Selector, Chuckles! Say hello to Calvin the Cat, brother to Sophie the Dog.
Calvin knows how to Christmas right. They key is to lay down atop the tree skirt for maximum paw warmth. Good job, Calvin!
PumpkinSpies’ Mr. Toomey got a little too excited by the holidays and slipped into the
eggnog catnip, much to the delight of Pumpkin. Look at that adorable derpiness!
Mimi_Krimi’s Alice must have been a goat in a previous life, because this kitty has never met an object he didn’t like to eat.
Next, Lemmons998's Miss Eleanor comes to us with another example of expert cat-Christmas tree skirting.
Meanwhile, woodle’s two felines had a fine time exchanging an Eskimo kiss!
ANd fhrblig’s Sophie doesn’t mind letting it allllll hang out. There’s no wrong way to sprawl across a couch, after all.
Welp, that’s about it, folks. There were so many amazing and incredibly adorable pics in last week’s post that it was hard to narrow things down. Clearly, our pets are as big of fans of the holidays as we are. But with Christmas come and gone, the new year awaits! So, show us how your fur friends are celebrating by showing us their fur faces!
