Afternoon and howdy, y’all! It’s the second official day of summer and it’s Friday, so y’all know what that means: FUR FACE FRIDAY!

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Xyl0c41n3, Chuckles or CBG), 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 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.

Anyway, let’s take a look at some of last week’s cutie patooties.

First up we have Andy’s fine feline, Nellie:

And a special guest spotted in Washington DC. I’m a huge sucker for raptors, but this one is new to me. I know it’s a hawk of some sort. Maybe a broadwing or a juvenile red-shouldered. Anyone else know?

Then there’s Kilted Padre’s Edgar. I absolutely love the juxtaposition of cat and bright blue mousy in this photo, but the entire series is just ridiculously cute.

KK4Bama’s Jet totally got busted by the security camera while looking for Scooby snacks, methinks.

And Periwinkle’s Millie clearly understands that you have to take a moment to enjoy the best things in life, such as rolling around in the grass on a sunshiny day.

Tofutti Klein shared with us this magnificent specimen of a long-haired tortie named Strudel, I think I am smitten!

Mufasa the gingercat definitely knows he’s king of His Stigness’ home.

And finally, Jetgirl’s colt is coming along fine! All legs and cute little snoot.
