About 4 times a day, I get the overwhelming urge to annoy the life out of my cat. Occasionally she seems appreciative of my over-zealous love, but mostly regards me as a nuisance. I wish there was a way to explain to her that she’s just too CUTE and FUZZY and ADORABLE to be left to her nap in peace. But she doesn’t get it.

That’s the struggle humans have to face with their cute animal encounters. It’s gotta be perplexing when we suddenly run after them and scoop them up while babbling baby gibberish. The good news is, you can do your babbling from afar using this list of adorable animals from around the web. No petting, unfortunately, but it’s the next best thing.

Let’s take a look at these cute creatures and if you don’t want to meet them all after going through these posts, well, you have no heart.
