Greetings, ladeez and gemplums! This week brings us a Fur Freak Friday, a safe space where the Fur Faces can let their freak flags fly and we are all better for the experience. Board the magic bus with your Fur Face and prepare to have your mind blown by teh qte.

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.

Now, onto last week’s prime Fur Faces!

Jubilee does her best to keep vivlock right where she wants her. Look at the big hippo nose on that girl. It needs booping, stat.


Ladybug the Ninja Cat’s namesake isn’t afraid to fly her freak flag.


Neither is Dr. Sattler’s Liz, who also boasts admirable dentition. I guess that retainer made all the difference.


NE carbs lover’s Duke is in the zone;


and anitadahhling gives us two handsome fur faces for the price of one!


The rest of last week’s fur-bearin’ varmints can be found here.

Now, let’s get our Fur Freak on!
