You're not alone in thinking cats are adorable. Photos of the cutest cat breeds are everywhere online.
YouTube users looked for cat videos 55 million times in 2019. Nala, a lovely silver tabby, set a Guinness World Record for most Instagram followers for a cat (4,361,519) in 2020.
Several explanations explain why cats are cute. One is that their enormous, wide eyes and little noses resemble newborns.
Another is that a loving cat purring on our lap is soothing. Whatever the cause, cats have been cute since 10,000BC, when they were domesticated.
