things are about to get crushingly adorable in here.
These delights are taken from a website called terriblycute.com, so we’re already off to a good start. Please, enjoy these selections from the fine, fine article called Tiny Animals in Cups– Maximum Cuteness.
My cousin knows a good gif when she sees one.
My other cousin just knows her stuff. In general. In the best way.

I suppose the theme of this post is– these cats make me feel like I (or anyone) could go on living and it would be a good idea. This is summed up nicely this article from Gothamist entitled OMG: Kitten Stuck In Bag Of Chips Saved From Subway Tracks. Go onnnnnnnnn.
Okay, it’s wonderful to hear stories about nice people, but when it involves a subway conductor who stopped his train so he wouldn’t hit a kitten whose head was stuck in a Sun Chips bag, it’s just off the charts of AWWWW.
The Daily News spoke to conductor John Ross, who shared photographs of the poor kitten: Apparently he “was pulling his Franklin Shuttle train out of the Brooklyn [Botanic] Garden station about 9:15 a.m. Tuesday when he spotted trouble. A cat with a Sun Chips bag over its head was lying smack in the middle of the tracks.”
Ross, who said, “I figured it may be a cruel trick by some kids — or the cat might be trying to get some food,” ended up pulling the hand brake to stop the train. Then Ross got down and removed the bag from the cat’s head. The cat looked at him—Ross said it was like the kitten was thinking, “Wow, I don’t know where I’ve been”—before running off.
Also, the News had recently profiled Ross for risking his life to save a passenger: In 2009, a passenger was randomly stabbed by an ex-con, and Ross, who was off-duty, helped pull the attacker off his victim and also tackled the suspect when he tried to flee.
The adorability of Mike Shea’s post is reinforced by his man-on-the-street statement, added as an afterthought.
also there is a new tiny black kitten living at the bodega on Franklin and Prospect on our side of the street
Mike Shea, I’d say there’s detective work in your future.
