There seems to be a very distinct difference between “Cat People” and “Dog People”–and even those who have a genuine appreciation for both! But whether you relate more to the graceful, independent spirit of a feline or the silly, friendly nature of a canine, one thing is for sure: it is nearly impossible for anyone to look at these fluffy kitties without saying “aww!” at least once!
Here are 16 pictures that can make anyone appreciate the beauty of a cat, and may even make a convert out of most pup-obsessed dog person!
1. Let’s start with this adorable, red-striped kitten. Red panda or feline? Either way, it’s utterly adorable!
2. And this one, who looks like a raccoon. Now this is what you’d call a “master of disguise.”
3. As does this beautiful bandit. WHAT KIND OF ANIMAL ARE YOU?!
4. This little sweetheart poses bashfully for the camera. “Cheese!”
5. And this smiley girl knows how to strike a pose. (A yoga pose, that is.)
6. …Maybe they learned their camera skills from this guy? “Smile with your teeth!”
7. This speckled beauty looks like a green-eyed abstract painting.“I know, I am a work of art, Daaahling.”
8. And this Dapper Dan has quite the ‘stache. Hence, those classically good looks.
9. This precious peanut wears her heart on her…nose! “To remind you how much I love you!”
10. And this one-eyed kitten is just about the cutest pirate you’ve ever seen! “Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of…FUN!”
This is Sir Stuffington. He was found under an apartment building in Troutdale, Oregon with his 2 brothers. Mother had been killed (presumably by a racoon, maybe a stray dog) Covered in fleas, anemic, with calicivirus and a heart murmur.
11. These two lovebugs prove what cat lovers already know: kitties can be very cuddly. They’re puuurrrfect for sleepy time snuggles.
12. And this little lady will hypnotize you with those big, glassy doe-eyes! “Look into my eyes and you will find me IRRESISTIBLE!”
13. This guy has the cutest smushed face in the whole wide world. It looks like he’s got a fuzzy five-head.
14. And this little princess will share her royal cuteness with you.“I dub thee: Lady Loves-A-Lot!”
15. There’s a zillion reasons we love our cats (including their eye colors! Just look at this blue-eyed beauty).
16. But at the top of the list? They’re just so darn adorable! “YAY FOR BEING CUTE!”
