Hello, and welcome to another weekly installment of Fur Face Friday, everybody’s favorite Kinja collection of adorable Fur Faces. I’m Chuckles, your host for the week.
It’s Memorial Day Weekend, and Summer Solstice be damned, this is the start of Summer. Hopefully you can all get out and enjoy the weekend in the best possible way. But before you head for the beach, stop by and share an adorable animal pic or two.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, 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.
Hannibal A Portas did an excellent job with last week’s post, so let’s take a look at just a few of the many excellent fur faces. There were way too many great faces to choose from this week, and it was really difficult to only select a handful.
I knew from the moment I first saw this picture of Kiltedpadre’s Ruby that it was going to be the lead image this week. I mean just look at it:
YoucancallmeAL’s Otis prefers to keep all paws firmly planted on the mattress:
It’s Gina’s Cosmo keeps most, but not all of his paws on the ground while sleeping.
Sleeping isn’t just for the dogs though. Blammobiddy’s Littles also enjoys a bit of comfort:
Vondon302's Hope might sleep with all paws on the ground, but she always keeps an eye or two open:
Such A Travesty’s Bella was a little grumpy about having to share a napping spot with Bailey:
Duck Duck Grey Duck FTMFW’s Clyde got in a vicious fight with a blanket and it was absolutely adorable:
Future Heap Owner and Ravna took a trip north of the border, and along the way they got some pretty great pictures:
And lastly we have Rocky. The Bicycle Buck got a great picture of him embracing the start of summer by drinking out of a hose. Cheers, Rocky.
And that’s it for this week’s edition of Fur Face Friday! Congrats to all of the winners, and stay safe this weekend, folks. Now show us your Fur Faces!!!
