Greetings, friendbeasts and beastfriends! It is time for our weekly exhibition of beastfriend pulchritude and general snuggliness, the first FFF in August. Theoretically summer does not end until 22 September, the official first day of autumn, but for most of us summer ends with Labour Day, when the endurance test we know as life drives us back to the office and the schoolroom. So let us make hay while the sun shines!*

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia, EdieBealesCostume, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch), entirely on our own whimsy. WHIMSY. However, in the interest of GT 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.

Here are some lovahs from last week:

* Since Edie covered the topic most assiduously last week, and since mrsfinch is Canadian, this FFF will be free of all political innuendo and especially of any mention of the current Republican presidential candidate. This is a safe space, my friendbeasts.
