He looks so worried.

Hm. I think this is kind of a bad example. I can't stop thinking that the little guy cannot breathe properly. These cats are not very healthy, you know...

the eyes look like they're going to pop out :(

That's not cute - that's tragic. Disgusting, even. Not the kitten, but the extreme breeding for no sane reason. Shameful. :(

Villeline
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 07:41 AM

definitely one for "cute or sad?"

gillian
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 08:05 AM

I don't believe you in the slightest. Not real. It's a fake cute stuffed animal. Excuse me whilst I implode.

Nana B
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 08:12 AM

Awwwwwwww. Leave the poor wittle kitty alone! He's gotta grow in to those features of his. His nose is pink and moist and clean and not all that pushed in. His eyes show no signs of gook. He's perfectly fine, just needs to fill out a little.

The most frustrating thing about this site is that you can't reach out and give all these damn cute critters a big squeeze or a snorgle (is that the word)!

Wendy

It's adorable and completely lovable. But I think it's sad that people breed deformities into animals to satisfy their own criteria. Genetically, this little baby is predisposed to sinus and eye complications.

Big kiss to the baby and wotsa wuv.

This kitten says, "I will suck your brain out in your sleep... don't you want to naaaa-ap?"

Too, too cute.

*roflmao* Okay this is the funniest, saddest cutest little guy I have ever seen (how can something so small be the an example of so many adjectives).
He looks like someone just pulled him out of a dryer and he's not mad... no... his look says it all "why... why me?..."

Ayani

Oh! "I so fuffy, it makes me sad!"

Jude
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 08:28 AM

wow, can you imagine that one meowing? :')

"people breed deformities into animals to satisfy their own criteria"

Hold the phone and please be patient with my ignorance but people actually breed animals to this extreme?! I mean I knew that people bred for certain traits but to the detriment of the animal? What the hell is the point? This poor little guy isn't just a genetic anomolie?

M-
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 08:31 AM

oh my GOD!! this is *the* cutest cat I've EVER seen!

until i read the posts, i had no idea that they were bred to look like this though; I just thought that's how this kind of cat normally was supposed to looked. does anyone know the name of this breed?

christina
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 08:32 AM

Unbelievable!!! What a cutest kitten I've ever seen in my lifetime! Sure he is very fuffy but what the hell! He is too cute not to love him!!! Give that poor kitten a chance!

April

*look (not looked)

i've really gotta start double checking my spelling before i post. i'm making myself look like english isn't my first language. oh, well...

christina
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 08:34 AM

I posted a couple links to possible breeds: Persian and Exotic Short Hair. They both have the flat faces. Persians have been around a long time, though I'm sure someone bred them that way originally. Exotic Short Hairs were bred to have the facial features and look of the Persian, but with short hair.

Hopefully someone who knows more about cats than I do can tell for sure if that cat is one of those breeds....

seriously, that is one of the un-cutest kittens I've ever seen in my life. F-ugly!

So betrayed! *speculation time* "Why did you put me in the bath? I'm so little! I only need one lick!"

Why does looking at this depress me? :\

Wow! That pic is off the charts cute. My fave kitten pic on here so far was the kitten puddle. But I think this one pulls ahead.

I have to respectfully disagree, this little guy just doesn't fit my definition of cute.

Overall though, I think Cute Overload is awesome and I love your posts; I have your RSS subscribed on my LJ. Keep up the great work!!

I think the kitty looks more scared than sad. Cute puff ball though.

Woods walker
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 09:08 AM

The ball of fluff is a solid (white) Persian. Don't worry - other than a predisposition to goopy eyes and snoring while asleep, they are healthy, loving and energetic kitties, who lead normal cat lives. They are like Pugs or French Bulldogs - they are bred for those facial qualities. I've got two, and they are anerable. Honkshu! However, this baby is so puffy it makes me want to strap a stick to it and clean all my overhead ceiling fans and venetian blinds...

Awww man, it's the ears that are getting me! How CUTE-INS! Kisses for the little smushy face-ins!

Beauregard
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 09:23 AM

If you look at early paintings, say from the 17th century, the fancy ladies loved posing with their dogs, and pugs were very popular during that time. And you'll see that all of them have snouts, just like regular dogs.

The thing is, that the genetic material for the upper snout exists on/in a different chromosome than the lower jaw. That's why bulldogs, pugs, Persians, etc. have that look.

Without judging any of this, I can't imagine it's a comfortable way to live for the poor beasties.

jaypo

I want to snuzzle.

Please to let me snuzzle the kitten.

*snuzzle snuzzle snuzzle*

Maureen
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 09:29 AM

It's one of those Kittypugs. Or a Pugkitties. Wtf, its smushable anyways. Poor widdle thing.

Subhangi
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 09:44 AM

I can't even begin to see this kitty as cute... the word that's coming to mind at the moment is "hideous." :/

C
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 09:45 AM

While this kitten IS anerable, it does look like the breedline is too close. I hate seeing the results of improper breeding. :-( Nevertheless, I'm sure it will find a lot of love.

punkpie
 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 09:52 AM

If you go to Live journal and read the comments and objections there to the misbreeding of Persians (such as this kitten) and the like, you'll get an earful. This is animal abuse, pure and simple.
