Welcome to the weekly celebration of cuteness that is Friday. I’m pleased to be your host this week, as it gave me an excuse to visit last week’s post multiple times. It’s full of adorableness and well worth a return trip!
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.
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.
Now in my fifth week of work from home, I have found that my fur face, Tesla, has reached her own equilibrium. Her favourite moods: posing, snoozing, and judging. I saw all of these in last week’s comments, and here’s a few of my favourites.
The first order of the day is a good pose for the camera. In fact, here we have Jettgirl24's Piggie Smalls combining posing and snoozing in one gorgeous sun bath.
Next up to pose is Kobe, ready for his close up at Who is the Leader’s house
Andy “Cough, Cough” M-S spotted this glorious beast in a regal pose.
wesomeaustinv - likes T-birds and 4, maybe 5 people’s blue jay did a little posing of its own.
The second item on any Fur Face’s agenda is judging the hoomans.
Number One Cat and Saffron attempted the challenging coordinated double-judge of Area Woman here - and nailed it! Full marks you two!
Buster Brown Bluth, Esq. worked his judgement and snoopervision skills to keep HoneyHeart on task while working from home.
Alice gave Mimi_Krimi quite the stare in the evening sun. There’s a cat who knows his best side (all of them!)
At the end of the day (and the middle, and the beginning) our fur faces need a restful snooze to make sure they have the energy to stay so adorable.
TheOperaGhost’s Fluff shows us how it is done
Cousin Matthew’s Tingling Leg’s snoozing doggo uses the bed for both quiet napping and running in his dreams. Sleep exercise - how efficient!
Winston and Stella took on an expert napping challenge - the multi-level snooze around ClassicDatsunDebate’s couch.
And finally, we say a loving goodbye to Smokie, who passed away soon after this photo was taken. Our sympathies and internet hugs are with boredalways.
So those are some of the Fur Faces that caught my eye this week - and that’s only a fraction of the sweet faces you can find in last week’s post.
Now it’s your turn to share your photos of adorable beasties. Show us your Fur Faces!
