4 Reasons We Love Kittens
We love kittens. What's not to love? Certainly not these four things.
Kittens Are Adorable
With their large eyes, chubby-looking cheeks, wispy fur, and endearing antics, kittens are just plain cute.
In fact, humans are hard-wired to find babies cute and want to take care of them. Kittens are no exception: their sweet faces are irresistible to us.
Kittens Don't Require Too Much Housetraining
While you certainly need to make sure you have enough litter boxes and that they're kept sparkling clean, housetraining a kitten is not as labor intensive as housetraining a puppy.
Using a litter box comes pretty intuitively for most kittens, and you usually just have to show them where it is and you're done.
Kittens Are Playful
Everything is interesting to a kitten, and anything can become a toy. Kids are drawn to this attitude, of course, because they have it too, but adults also find this quality endearing. It helps take our minds off of the cares of the day for a few moments and allows us to see the world as the enchanting, fun place our kitten thinks it is.
A tiny kitten making a tiny purr when you pet him has to be one of the sweetest things ever. Some kittens purr almost constantly while others reserve it for only special moments, but either way, hearing and feeling a kitten purr is among the greatest pleasures in life for a cat person.
