Hello, and welcome to another installment of Fur Face Friday, everyone’s favorite Kinja weekly cross-post. I’m Chuckles, your host for this week. It’s Friday, February 14th. For some people that’s a holiday, for other people it’s a day to forget. All I know is that there is a lot of chocolate that goes on sale tomorrow, and that is truly worth celebrating. But until the heart shaped boxes of candy go on sale, let’s satisfy our collective sweet teeth by looking at some super cute pets.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, 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, we 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.
k2b did a truly excellent job with last week’s post, so let’s take a look at a few of my favorites:
It might be winter in Canada, but that didn’t keep CarsofFortLangley and Targa from going on a hike.
Meanwhile, further south, Stef Schrader and Fluffy Bunny, Eater of Souls, got into plenty of trouble without ever leaving the house:
There are few things better in life than the cuddle pile shared with us by Jettgirl24. A dog, a cat, and a pig?! I’m in love with this picture.
Not all dogs around here are willing to cuddle with cats (or pigs for that matter). Here’s Lymond’s Yoshi and Buddy Boo, ever vigilant as they scan the fence line for cats.
Sylvie and her best friend Ella don’t have time to care about cats. They’re too busy having fun, as seen here by 415s30 + oIIIIIIo (ง •̀_•́)づ)˚з°)
Michael showed us a picture of the girls keeping themselves occupied with a nice friendly game of tug-of-war.
But it’s not all fun and games around here. Sometimes we need to rest. And Mimi Krimi’s Bob is a champ when it comes to napping:
Naps are so important that they can even bring mortal enemies together. Tofutti Klein caught a rare moment of peace between her two cats:
Edie Beale’s Costume’s Little Dude, King of the Chair, takes a moment out of his busy day to survey his domain.
Do you ever wake up from a nap and decide that you’re not quite ready to return to reality? Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird’s QuiQue knows exactly what I’m talking about.
And lastly, it is with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to Otis, YoucancallmeAL’s big sweetheart last week. He will be missed around here, but we’re glad that he got one last ride in the ‘71 Scout before it was time to go.
And that’s it for this week’s edition of Fur Face Friday! I hope you enjoy your weekend, however long or short it may be. But before you go, please show us your fur faces!
