The heatwave has broken and finally we are able to enjoy fall, the season of mist and mellow fruitfulness, close bosom-friend of the maturing sun. John Keats himself declares that it is FUR FACE FRIDAY!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia MacNasty, Edie Beale’s Pantsuit, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch, facw or Xyl0c41n3), 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.
On to our winners from last week!
booktart’s Dashiell missed his dinner but won our hearts.
vivlock’s Jubilee was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms.
teamPenguin found out who has been nibbling her basil:
SeungriVVIP’s Molko took five. Or maybe ten or possibly even half an hour.
tasteofhtebitchpudding’s Otto had a birthday!
ad infinitum’s Buster marked an anniversary!
and S65 gave us this long and scaly “doggo”, but there is no fooling mrsfinch, she knows a fine snek when she sees one.
Now, fill all fruit with ripeness to the core, and show us your Fur Faces!
