Folks, it’s been a week. I don’t know about you, but I need to forget about the world for a while and just enjoy looking at some adorable animals.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, 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 find a moment of joy in these, our little endorphin-enabling wonders.
Thanks again to facw for taking action in the 11th hour and pulling together a great set of fur faces on last week’s post. Now let’s take a look at just a few of them:
Diplodicus broke out a roll of the good film to capture Molly’s essence:
Napoli showed us why you should always leave your car window rolled down. You never know who might hop in!
hedbutter celebrated 1 year with the adorable Tucker, seen here with a magnificent blep:
Speaking of celebrations, happy 1st birthday to KK4Bama’s Kevin and Cannoli! In just a year they’ve grown from tiny peanuts into full-fledged cats, seen below in a photo taken for their upcoming album cover:
From 1 year olds to a 12 year old, here’s MattHurting’s loveable dog, looking very comfy on some pillows:
It’s not just dogs that can get comfy though. KiltedPadre’s Edgar decided to relax and show off some beans:
Such a travesty’s Bella got a bath, and wasn’t particularly thrilled about it:
Area Woman’s Area Cat is living the dream:
We’ve had dogs and cats here today, but how about a wolf-dog? VincentMalamute-Kim started volunteering at a wolf sanctuary, and was kind enough to show us that even wild animals can do a blep:
Lastly, we have a bear. Specifically, MasterMario’s Bear, who is burying his head in the snow and refusing to admit that Spring is nearly upon us:
And that’s it! Thanks again to everyone who participates in Fur Face Friday, and congrats to all of this week’s winners! Now show us your fur faces!!!
