It’s Father’s Day weekend! But here at FFF we believe in inclusion. So we’re honoring all caretakers of the furry and fluffy.
Hey you! Ever wanted to be a Snout Selector? We’re now hiring at Snout Selector HQ. The pay is lousy, but the perks are second to none.
To be clear, we already have this week’s edition covered. But we are looking to add a few new people to the rotation.
All you need is authorship on a kinja sub-blog and a working email address. We operate on a sign-up schedule, so ideally you’ll only be hosting when it works for you.
If you are interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and please include your kinja name so we know who it is. If we get a lot of volunteers, we’ll use some sort of selection process.
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. And it’s still kitten and puppy season and will be for a while, so the more support your favorite shelter or rescue gets, the better.
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.
