*waves* Hi GT and Kinjaverse, I’m iroqdemic, and this... (dramatic pause)
is Fur Face Friday!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, Vivlock, 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, 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. And it’s still kitten and puppy season and will be for a while, so the more support your favorite shelter or rescue gets, the better.
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.
Alright, y’all did NOT make it easy for this newbie to pick winners. They are all winners! BUT that is why this job is hard. So I have put on my grown-up pants, made the hard choices, and focus-grouped this thing to the gills. (The focus group = my cat, ignoring all my requests for help). So let’s try to copy these cool cats, dogs, and others and take it easy in this HOT summer!
First up, Andy “The Folding Attorney” M-S met President Carter’s farm cat. His name appears to be less than adequate, because he is no Scardey-Cat. More like, Ignorey-Cat?
Euphronia got to pet-sit for a chihuahua that appears to be my spirit animal. I’ve never seen a more chill chihuahua.
Chuckles got to visit your favorite smooshface and mine, Tamba.
Krispy Porkchops’s Myles stayed cool by BEING cool. Lookit this cool cat:
What’s cooler than a greyhound ice cream party? Nothing, says Kiltedpadre’s Ruby!
Meanwhile, simon-on-the-river3 captured this fine feline staying cool on a stone wall and no doubt disapproving of everything us humans are doing.
Never fear, other types of animal lovers, because there were some excellent examples of many more animals, like... HORSIES! (sorry my inner 7 year old took over) Thanks for the gorgeous B&W pics, diplodicus forgot his password!
PumpkinSpies captured this industrious caterpillar making a meal out of some aphids. Collect them all, lil’ caterpillar!
Finally, we have the coolest drop in, in the form of the frog that wants to live in vondon302's deck umbrella. Maybe you can collect rent by having him eat bugs?
There were definitely a bunch more amazing and adorable pics in last week’s post. Check them out! Aphids were definitely injured in the assembly of this post. Sorry, ASPCA.
Now show us your FUR FACES!
