Kittens are cute. A simple statement, but it covers such a deep field because kittens can be cute in so many ways. There are the daring older kittens who love to pounce and play, making cat lovers silly over their cute antics. At just a few weeks old, kittens are taking wobbly steps and beginning to explore. Their little tumbles and first encounters with the big world are adorable.

And a kitten with the first taste of wet food all over their mouths makes us chuckle at the sweetness of a messy face. When the food flicks into their eyebrow whiskers, just forget it! Cat lovers are reduced to mush.

But, some of the cutest of the cute comes at the paws of newborn kittens. Everything a kitten so tiny does is pure, precious, and utterly heart-melting. Just like this sweet baby sucking his tiny thumb…

We don’t deserve such sweetness!

And just like this tabby love, the digital world is full of adorable newborn kittens just being the cute little bundles they are. Let’s have a look at some of them, but first…
