Happy April! Spring is here! March really went in like a lion, out like a... Hey wait a minute, why is it still snowing?! It sure doesn’t feel like Spring yet here in the Keystone State. Hopefully it’s much warmer and greener wherever you are. Speaking of where you are, you’re here! And it’s Fur Face Friday! So let’s get down to business.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch, 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.
KrabbyPaddy did an excellent job with last week’s post. As always, it was a very difficult task to narrow it down to a dozen or so furry faces. I wanted to pick all of the fur faces, but Olive demanded that I stop typing and get back to petting her after I got through a handful of winners. Just know that I loved each and every picture that you all submitted! Now on to the floofs!
Me every week: “I will not pick QuiQue again. I will not pick QuiQue again. I can’t always pick QuiQue.”
Me: “QUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” (Shakes fist angrily at God)
QuiQue wasn’t the only one feeling festive. Here’s KrabbyPaddy’s Walligator feeling a little Irish:
Some Fur Faces may have partied a little too hard. Here’s LadySparrow’s Pluto passed out with his head on a table. We’ve all been there, little buddy:
Sometimes, after a long night, you just need to get outside for some fresh air and a little time in the sun. Periwinkle’s Dude and Simba show us how it’s done:
Of course, some of us, like Bertolt Brechtiosaurus’ Harpur, would rather get our rest inside:
KK4Bama welcomed a new fur face into the family. Meet Bryant, an adorable 8 year old that prefers to be called Skeeter :-)
XJDano’s Delta and Penny spent a little time bird watching this week:
Meanwhile, Area Woman sent us a picture of the welcoming committee, probably on the lookout for warmer weather:
I think Tofutti Klein’s Strudel was just on the lookout for a tasty snack:
BeakerC was kind enough to share a lot of great pictures from an Easter photo session, but here’s my favorite:
Askim Benim shared a great picture of a very good girl with us:
Bitofivory’s husband did his best to try and cheer her up at work, and he enlisted the help of Rosa and Dalia. Send in the pups!
Hannibal A Portas took Fanny and her friend to Petsmart for some treats. They look like they earned it!
Mr. Spock sent in this terrific picture of Leo. Better late than never!
Lastly, we sadly said goodbye to a beloved fur face. Capriciavi had to say goodbye to Sirius, a truly good boy. He’s now reunited with his best cat friend. According to Capriciavi, Sirius was a very good boy who was always friendly, great with cats and who loved long walks along the fields. While we might not have known Sirius personally, we all know how hard it can be to lose a beloved family member. Rest in Peace, Sirius.
That’s it for this week’s edition. As always, I’m sorry if your fur face wasn’t selected this week, but just know that I truly enjoyed looking at every single picture that you sent in, so keep them coming!
PS-As is always the case when I host, this post is shared to Oppositelock. If you don’t have posting privileges there, please send in your picture anyway and someone will be along to pull it out of the greys as soon as possible.
Now let’s see your fur faces!
