We would never dare to rank the cutest cat breeds. Frankly, they’re all adorable for different reasons. But choosing the cutest photos of purebred kittens? That we can do.
As a matter of fact, we like to think of ourselves as connoisseurs of cute — especially if we’re talking baby animals. So to bring you the most adorable photos we have (an incredibly difficult and taxing task), we scoured our cat breed profiles for photos that made us say "aww."
From the precious Persian to the fluffy Maine Coon, these 11 kitten photos are so cute that they’re sure to put a smile on your face.
7 Kitties in a Row
off, let's start out with the fact that there are seven Maine Coon kittens in
this photo. That alone is insanely adorable. And then those ears. So pointy. So
fluffy. It's hard to believe that one day, these kittens could weigh up to 18
pounds — in this photo they haven't even grown into their whiskers yet!
The Face That Launched 1,000 "Awws"
a tiny feline fashion model, this Persian kitten seems to know how to tilt her
head just so. And wow, her eyes are stunning. It's no wonder that the Persian
is one of the most popular cat breeds in the United States, according to the Cat Fanciers' Association.
We Want This Breed's Hair
knew cats could have curly coats? These Selkirk Rex kittens' wavy tresses are
on point. This cat breed can even have curly whiskers. That is amazing.
He's All About That Fluff
this Norwegian Forest Cat's coat look super soft? Don't his paws look huge? And
that little pink nose. We can't even.
A Quartet of Blue-Eyed Beauties
don't know about you, but these Birman kittens' sapphire blue eyes mesmerize
us. We could stare at them all day. They could probably control our minds with
those eyes. But we don't care; we'd do anything
for these cuties. You'll also notice the white socks they wear on their paws.
That pattern is called "gloves and laces." How sophisticated.
Have You Heard About Her Ears?
the name suggests, Scottish Folds are cats from Scotland who have folded ears.
That right there is super adorable. They're also said to look like owls. Well,
this Scottish Fold kitten does look
like an owl. He looks a little feisty, too, or like he's saying a friendly "hello." Either way, he wins tons of cute points.
We're Wild About These Kittens
these Somali kittens aren't baby foxes. But these bright-eyed and bushy-tailed
kitties certainly win cuteness points for looking like them.
No, He's Not a Dachshund Puppy
tiny legs on that Munchkin kitten won't get much longer. But that won't stop
him from running and playing. It just ups his cute factor.
A Tiny Tiger?
that's not a tiger or leopard cub? Could've fooled us. Doesn't this Bengal
kitten look like he's letting out the softest little roar? Plus, he looks like
he could fit in the palm of your hand. Sigh, he's almost too cute.
How Many Kitties Do You See?
photo of a clowder (a group) of Russian Blue kittens is beyond adorable. So
many pairs of green eyes on gray fur. And it's all against a royal purple
background. Talk about complementary colors.
He's a Sight for Sore Eyes
Ragdoll kitten, we'll do whatever you want. Those stunning baby
blue eyes are so captivating that we'll give you another treat. We'll build a
cat castle for you. Maybe the world should just be ruled by Ragdoll kittens.
