Answer:  TRANSFURRED

(A fantastic Friday stinky pun!  This one was a real groaner, too!  The things we’ll put up with when it comes to our pets.  The main reason we have to vacuum the house – SO much – is because of all the Wally hair.  And, it seems to like to get as close to the baseboard as possible, forcing me to bend over using the hand attachment!  Oy, my aching back!  Harrumph!

There were no new clue words today.  Two of the clue words came up as new, but we’ve seen both “rufti” and “sureh” sometime before.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic eleven letter jumble.  I didn’t find it to be obvious in any way.

Fun cartoon of a cat lover and her friend.  Nice scratching post/hidey hole thing, cute toy mouse, and what would appear to be a hairball!  From the expression on cat, both live and in the photo, it’s clear to see that Jeff is a real . . . dog lover!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I agree, this one feels original and really well done. Personally I needed more time to unscramble OVERDO than the final answer. Even though OVERDO was already on my tough Jumble words list, I still struggled to untangle this compound word with an odd sequence of letters from this new anagram. (Are there any other six-letter words that begin and end with O? Apparently just “octavo,” which I don’t think is common enough in English to use in Jumble. For five-letter words, there’s the also tough “outdo” and the questionable-without-an-ING “outgo.”)

    I couldn’t really back into OVERDO except that I figured an -ED ending was needed, so I did recognize that those two were likely circled letters, which only helped a little. Once I did get OVERDO, I saw -FURRED fairly quickly and had it.

    We had a shepherd-collie mix that shedded this heavily. During her twice-a-year moults, you could vacuum the rug, filling the bag, and half-an-hour later, it looked like you’d never vacuumed. Amazing amount of loose fur.

    Ditto here on all-things-dog fur, UR! No matter how thoroughly I clean and vacuum, it all gets replaced in no time! We’ve decided if we wear black, brown, and white, we have all the colors of our bassets’ fur covered, since we are Forever covered in fur! Have you had the experience of wrapping gifts, and dog fur gets stuck on the tape??? It’s all a small price to pay for the blessing of a doggy, isn’t it! Have a super weekend, and please give Wally a treat from me..and from our bassets Chauncy and Gabby!

    It’s a little token we must provide to our eternal masters. I’ll ruin a classy outfit any day just to have one of them landing on me for a few moments. Sadly it hasn’t happened in a long time – the cats at the pet shop won’t let anyone pick them up.

    My Aussie and Terrier mix were hair machines! I swiffered all the time and was totally aghast each and every time at how much hair I collected! I saw Chloe (terrier mix) waltzing through the den one day and the light was hitting on her perfectly. She looked like a little snow storm walking through, her blonde hair going absolutely everywhere! I was like…how is that possible!!

    When Chloe passed we acquired Izzy. She’s a Shih-Tzu Lhasa blend AND does not shed!

    Love my furr babies! LL
