About

Cute Animals are animals that are considered to have the quality of cuteness, which is usually defined as an attractiveness based on a young appearance.[3] Because humans have a natural attraction to cuteness, cute animals have become extremely popular on the Internet as a source of entertainment.

Online History

One of the first websites dedicated to cute animal pictures was Cute Overload, which was formed in 2005.[4] Since its launch, the site has accumulated numerous awards from several organizations, including a Webby Award.[5] In 2007, the site I Can Has Cheezburger was created by entrepreneur Ben Huh to showcase images of cute cats with humorous captions, later dubbed LOLcats; the site later expanded to include other animals, and started a purely cute animal blog titled the Daily Squee in 2010.[6] Cute animals have also been a common subject for video compilations. One of the earliest and most viewed examples on YouTube was uploaded in 2006 and has gained over 26 million views.[7]
