Welcome back for another action-packed episode of Fur Face Friday! I’m Chuckles, your host for the week. It’s the end of January, which means that the days are getting longer (by almost 2 minutes a day!), I’m starting to feel bad about not taking down my Christmas decorations yet (hey, at least I put them up this year!), and and we’re only a week away from getting to watch a Bill Murray movie marathon featuring an adorable Fur Face named Punxsutawney Phil.

Before we get started, special thanks are in order for CBG, who graciously stepped in to host Fur Face Friday last week after Krabby Paddy experienced technical difficulties. Nice work, CBG!

Also, for those of you who are finding your posts to be a little more “gray” than usual due to FFF being hosted on Oppositelock, just know that we’re working on it, and your floofs are not being ignored.


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


Here are the fur faces that I’ve selected from last week’s post. As always, it was excruciatingly difficult to select only a few winners out of the dozens of great responses, but just remember that this is based on WHIMSY. I’ve even perfected an Excel spreadsheet to help me quantify the exact amount of WHIMSY in each photo!

Dr. Zoidberg showed us a picture of two dogs trying to give each other dental exams at the exact same time.

“Say ahhhhh.”

“No, you say ahhhhh!”

“Ok, we both say ahhhhhh on the count of three.”

“Three!”

Lastly, Mwittier shared this adorable face-boop gif of Miss Sass. Keep sending good vibes to Miss Sass, as she’s dealing with kidney disease. But she can still boop with the best of them!

That’s it! Congrats to all of the winners, and thanks to everyone for sharing your fur faces and giving me an excuse to sit on my computer and enjoy them all. Now let’s see what you’ve got this week!
