What’s more frightening right now, my Fur Facers? Halloween or the pending US election? Count Floyd here says “both”.

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia, Edie Beale’s Pantsuit, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch), 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 any shelter or rescue site. I know I’m not the only one lurking on Petfinder!

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 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’s check out our costumed cuties from last week!


There’s no denying that CindyLouCthulhu’s Shrieking Eels are the finest fang faces around.

Pumpkin Spies’ Gus is dressed as a Wild Thing to atone for acting like one. Does it count as a costume when it is (dun dun dun) punishment?

Someone needs to tell Subrielisthedoctor’s Milton that his cloak of invisibility is not working.

Beaker C’s baby bun is dressed as a gift with purchase. Best gift ever!

And Toasted Cheeser’s Beezus is thinking: “This old thing? I just threw it on before I left the house,” knowing in her heart that we must all bow down.

Now, my Fur Facers, let us see more Fur Faces, costumed or not! The demons of Halloween require our tributes!
