Hello, and welcome to another installment of everyone’s favorite weekly kinja collection of adorable animals. Hopefully everyone had a great week and can cap it off with heavily discounted heart-shaped boxes of candy. It doesn’t matter how you did or didn’t celebrate yesterday, because we’re on to bigger and better things here at Snout Selector HQ. We’ve got dogs, cats, cows, mice, bunnies, and even a beloved superhero makes an appearance!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Xyl0c41n3, Chuckles, CBG, 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.
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. So let’s find a moment of joy in these, our little endorphin-enabling wonders.
k2b did a splendid job with last week’s post, so let’s take a look at a few of my favorites. There were a lot of deserving fur faces, but we can’t pick them all:
BeakerC had another adorable batch of buns to show off, but this one stole my heart:
Diplodicus forgot his password got up close and personal with some very cool looking cows:
Meanwhile, bio spent some time with a few critters that are just a bit smaller than those cows (and there are still some available for adoption if you’re interested):
Just in case you were worried that we had forgotten about the dogs, here’s a sleepy Cosmo to the rescue, courtesy of It’s Ginaaa:
And don’t worry, there’s still a few cats hiding around here somewhere. Here’s one from HoneyHeart:
One of the challenging parts of being a Snout Selector is that there’s an unspoken rule that you shouldn’t select your own pets as winners (sorry, Olive, Apple, and Cassie!). But that doesn’t mean that we can’t feature the adorable fur faces that belong to the other Snouters! Here’s Hannibal A Portas’ Fanny, a dog that I wish we’d see more often around these parts We need more Fanny!
Wally gets good and spoiled by Ragged Claws, and here he is after a nice drink of milk:
Such a Travesty’s Bella looks very comfortable on her bed. Maybe it used to be someone else’s bed, but it belongs to Bella now. Are you going to ask her to move? I wouldn’t:
Some animals would rather get out of bed and seize the day, like JawzX2, Boost Addict’s Glorious Mrs. Louise Formal Kitty:
Lastly, we have Batman, courtesy of Jettgirl24. With ears like that, this dog has some serious sonar:
And that’s it! Congrats to all of this week’s winners, and thank you to everyone for submitting your adorable fur faces week after week. Now show us your fur faces!
