Happy May! It looks like we’ve finally defeated the evils of winter! The snow is gone, the flowers are blooming, and I’m already running my air conditioning in the house. The gap between running the heat and running the AC lasted all of about 2 days. That was fun while it lasted. Oh well. When it comes to weather, I guess the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Another week of temps in the 80's and 90's and I’ll be begging for snow. I can’t win. Speaking of green grass, I’d just like to use my soapbox for a minute to point out that mowing the lawn is by far the most overrated activity out of all of the household chores. Being really into mowing your lawn is like being really into vacuuming. Truly, there is nothing worse. But enough about my lawn, let’s get on to the Fur Faces!
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 a stellar job with last week’s post. You may notice that this week’s post includes fewer selections than the last time I hosted this. That has nothing to do with the quality of the fur faces and everything to do with the fact that I stayed up late watching hockey before remembering that it was my turn to host Fur Face Friday. Please don’t take it personally if I didn’t select your beloved animal. I enjoyed seeing all of the submissions. So let’s take a look at just a few of my favorites:
Let’s start things off with PumpkinSpies’ Mr. Toomey looking particularly smug:
The Vicious’ Gracie can put a smile on any face:
AestheticsInMotion showed us that work isn’t all bad if you get to hang out with your customers’ cats:
Hannibal A Portas showed us that Fanny and Mims can wait patiently, at least long enough to snap a picture:
His Stigness’ Mufasa showed us that cats really are liquid. They will take the shape of any vessel that you pour them into:
And that’s it for this week’s edition of Fur Face Friday! Tune in next time if you want to see me pick a dozen more adorable pictures while ranting about the weather, complaining about lawn maintenance, and generally being sleep deprived because I was up all night looking at prices on used pinball machines.
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!
