Even their names – kittens – sound too cute for words!
When you are face to face with a kitten, you are most likely going to say “Aww” several times and act like you discovered the sweetest living being ever.
Though many of us tend to call ourselves dog people, there is something strangely cute and adorable about kittens. They look curious yet frightened, and they are always willing to do something to melt our hearts further.
In case you needed a fresh dose of super cute kittens, we got you covered. You might also learn some fun facts about baby cats and understand their behavior better.

These babies are truly needy, as they can’t self-regulate their temperature. That’s why they sleep on top of each other. If you are taking care of a lost baby, it’s essential to give it enough heat, ideally 90 degrees Fahrenheit with a humidity of 55-65%.
