Kittens are just the cutest animals on the planet. They are tiny, cuddly and super soft. While many of us are amazed with these furry friends, how many of you have really wondered why we find these little creatures so damn sweet? Fortunately, science has come to save the day with a few explanations of why we love kitties so stinking.
Fun, furry cat
The first reason why people find kittens so irresistibly cute is their soft fur. Sure, other animals also have fur, but still, the reason we find them cuter than snakes and spiders is because of their goo. Honestly, who can pet a caressing little kitten?
It all goes back to the care
As humans, we love to stroke kittens so much for our genes. Humans are still part of the primate order, and primates are very used to nursing. While today's social standards do not necessarily allow people to care for each other, we definitely love to pet our soft, furry friends.
All eyes for kittens
People also can not get enough of kittens because we feel the need to protect them. Some scientists believe that even a kitten abducts a neurological reaction in our brains that causes us to take so much care of them. This immediate reaction is triggered by something you would never guess.
They look like us
The answer is due to the fact that we think that kittens look like little, baby versions of us. The proportion of their big heads and gleaming eyes on their tiny bodies reminds us of human babies. In fact, the more an animal looks like a human baby, the more attractive and lovable it becomes in our eyes.
We can not get enough
The soft, cuddly fur paired with those sweet, sparkling eyes is enough to lead us over the edge complete cuteness overload, Not that any of this information is so surprising. Of course we love you kitten because they are super soft and have cute little faces. These are their best features!
