Greetings! It’s that time of the week again!

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 gather up your endorphins and prepare to squee as the curtain rises on our lovable talents!

As we head in to a long holiday weekend here in the US, it seems the cats that visited k2b last week are having no part of the festivities.


Just ask Mimi’s Bob

or Kiltedpadre’s Edgar


we see you, Pumpkin’s Mr. Toomey

you, too, Toffutti’s Sugarbear with the tiny blep


The dogs, however, are enthusiastic! Just look at Hannibal’s Fanny

and Piranha’s Gidget!


Meanwhile, gerbilsoutofexile & Beaker’s turtles be turtling


Now show us your fur faces!!!
