Greetings, fellow lovers of all that is cute, charming, and furry (or fuzzy or scaley). Let us gather to celebrate these faces together - I am pleased to say that last week was a bumper crop!
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.
Let me begin by admitting a fundamental truth: I am a Bruce stan. So of course, now I’m in love with Bruce and his new bestie - look at those little paws touching! Thanks for sharing, KrispyPorkchops, what a treat!
Rocky was given a fun promotion to back seat doggo, and wow is he giving TheRealBicycleBuck a winning smile!
Bella also went for a trip, and took it easy while such a travesty chauffeured her around!
Next up is a couple of feline supermodels working those winning poses:
The Artist Formerly Known As NowIAmBecomingDeath brought us this stunning shot of Milhouse, who clearly knows his best lighting.
And k2b:da man just coughed up an apocalypse on us. caught lal cat in an elegant stretch.
In the canine world we have a couple of good boys who used nature as their backdrop for furry adorableness.
Yoshi kept a close eye on Lymond’s garden
and Agrajag’s Gus showed us that we don’t have to choose between floof and blep for maximum goodness.
A big Fur Face Friday welcome to Lhotse, who has joined bitchyolympian1’s household.
Today we send our sympathies to Alice in the North Pole as she grieves for her sweet boy.
In Alice’s own words “It’s so hard to lose them, but the time with them makes that pain worthwhile.”
So in that spirit, let’s celebrate those lovely creatures who make life worthwhile. Show us your fur faces!
