Welcome to the first FFF of the new season - summer for us northerners and winter for the southern hemisphere-ians. This past week many excellent faces were shared so let’s have a belated solstice party to celebrate!
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.
This week, I found a lot of our fur friends indulging in the summer snooze / winter nap. Particular favourites include
The Tonk Patrol managed to look cozy but also keep a close eye on Bertolt Brechtiosaurus at the same time
Ever majestic, Cornbread is showing all the teef at Kiltedpadre’s house
Mufasa demonstrated perfect curled napping technique chez His Stigness -gots ta hide that nose!
Kira tried to play on Blalock’s sympathy with a little “melting doggo” melodrama

Autumn found the ideal snoozing sunbeam, but needed Azrek-pets to make things perfect.

The secret to a cozy snooze can be found at HoneySmacks’ house: hug one’s own tail!
