Hello, and welcome to another edition of Fur Face Friday, everyone’s favorite animal-centric weekly kinja cross-post. I’m Chuckles, your host for the week. I don’t know about you, but I had a few moments this week where it felt like Friday would never get here. This week seemed to drag. But then in a blink of an eye, it was 1 AM Friday morning and I realized that I still needed to write this post! So here we are, in the middle of the night, listening to random live versions of Mountain Goats songs while combing through last week’s post. But enough about me, let’s get on to the Fur Faces!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, Vivlock, and Leahaven), 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.
k2b did an excellent job with last week’s post. As always, the hardest part of being a snout selector is narrowing down the list of snouts every week. But it’s getting late and I need to be up for work in about 5 hours, so let’s just take a look at a few adorable critters:
Such A Travesty’s Bella had a lovely day outdoors, and was kind enough to pose by the water for us all:
Meanwhile, Bertolt Brechtiosaurus’ Firbank opted to stay indoors and celebrate his 10th birthday. He doesn’t look a day over 9!
415s30 + oIIIIIIo (ง •̀_•́)づ)˚з°) shared a picture of a truly ferocious looking Sylvie:
Piranha Plant’s Baxter is an adorable orange and white ball of floof:
YoucancallmeAL’s Ruby doesn’t care if it’s #tongueouttuesday or not, she’s going to show off that tongue anyway:
Vondon302's Joy took a break from reading Janet Evanovich to strike a pose:
Michael’s Dogs, Cora and Z, know how to be comfortable:
LadySparrow’s Spring is got so excited about dinner that he jumped right in the bag:
And that’s it for this week’s edition of Fur Face Friday! Enjoy your weekend, try to enjoy the lingering remnants of summer if you can, but before you go please show us your Fur Faces!!!
