Welcome to Fur Face Friday! For those of you who are in cold areas, I hope you’re keeping warm. For those who are experiencing a heat wave, I hope you’re finding ways to keep cool!

I’ve offered to fill in this week as no other Snout Selectors were available, and I’ve never done this before. Apologies in advance if do it wrong or I miss something.

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 let’s make a resolution to find joy in the smooshy, floofy, beaky, squeaky faces of our acquaintance, and bring some squee to mind!

Now on to last week’s winners!


Orcim’s Shumba stalking geckos. Reminds me a bit of the glamor shots of the 80s.

AdamFTW’s dog has a lovely stick, dreamy eyes, and an expression that’s melting my heart. Such a sweetheart! I would totally throw that stick in a game of fetch.


Hannibal A Portas’ grandkitty likes watching fish on YouTube. I thought this was a cool composition; just some black, some blue, and some orange.


Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird’s QuiQue gazes into the distance, looking majestic. TreeQuiQue.

TheOperaGhost’s Lexa went for a swim and now looks ready to take on the world!


BookTart’s Dashiell needs belly rubs, STAT! Also, it’s so adorable that Dashiell plays cow! :D

BlueTulipRozeOnTheThirdDay is one of our GTers experiencing a heatwave right now, so here’s Moe trying to survive 100 degree F weather (38 degrees C). Give Moe some ice cubes to lick!


Bertolt Brechtiosaurus’s weatherTonk Firbank doing an interpretive dance as to how darn hot it is in Australia. The pose makes me think of the Creation of Adam.


Finally, St. Borg de Chupacabras (Shrugging Texty Person) posted a pic of their chinchilla (right? I thought maybe could have also been a bunny. Kinda hard to tell from the angle) doing a right ol’ flop. (Ok, now I’m really torn. I’ve switched between bunny and chinchilla a few times. One thing is for sure, though: CUTE!)

That’s all for this week folks! So let’s see your fur faces for this week!
