Hello, and welcome to Fur Face Friday, August Edition! I’m Chuckles, your host for the week. July is over, but summer is still in full swing here at Snout Selector HQ! I’m sitting in our poolside cabana as I type this, enjoying a tasty beverage.
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 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.
Last week, Hannibal A Portas hosted her first official FFF as a Snout Selector, and she did a great job! Let’s take a look at a few of my favorites:
PumpkinSpies’ Mr. Toomey is an adorable rule-breaker:
Otis didn’t want to be outdone by his sister Ruby, who was picked as a winner last week. Here’s a pic of Otis courtesy of YoucancallmeAL, and he’s looking rather dapper after a good brushing:
The Tonk Patrol was out in full force at the home of Bertolt Brechtiosaurus:
At the home of Piranha Plant, Gidget was kind enough to show us a little blep:
Boobiechick’s Motto is trying her best to keep cool in this heatwave:
Gerbilsoutofexile has the best in-car navigation that I’ve ever seen:
Tofutti Klein’s Strudel doesn’t look particularly interested in travelling anywhere at the moment:
KK4Bama’s Jet got to spend some quality time with Georgia. These really are the dog days of summer:
Quietandfierce2 shared this picture with us of a cat who appears to be rather quiet, and rather fierce looking. This cat is not joking:
Lastly, we were saddened to learn that teamPenguin had to say goodbye to Sheba last week, a truly great cat. We’re sad to see her go, but we’re glad that she lived a good, long life and was fortunate enough to pass away peacefully. Rest in Peace, Sheba.
That’s it for this week’s edition. Now before you all leave town for your beach trip this weekend, please stop by and show us your fur faces!
