Small cats are incredibly cute. It’s possible that this is the case because they look like tiny kittens. A kitten’s large, expressive eyes, diminutive stature, and endearingly mischievous nature make it impossible to ignore. Everyone they meet falls in love with them, and it’s against the law because they’re too small. They’re so tiny you might mistake them for a speck of dust or a shadow lurking in the corner. Because, well, who the hell is that gorgeous, they are labelled as criminals.

We have pictures of tiny kittens from a subreddit called Illegally Smol Cats, which has 391,000 members. The internet says, “It should be illegal to be that adorable,” and we agree wholeheartedly. The cuteness of these itty-bitty kittens will make you want to throw your socks out the window. There are many adorable kittens in the pictures, and it’s hard not to say “aww” at each one. Keep reading to find out for yourself and then thank us!

I’ve decided to name him “Mini Me.” Quote: – Raven Sheridan

Since its creation in August of this year, the subreddit Illegally Smol Cats has amassed millions upon millions of smol kitten pictures.


The first few weeks of a kitten’s life are characterised by rapid and extraordinary development. Even more so than in the case of infants of most other species, their bodies mature extremely rapidly in this species. Both of their sensory organs, the eyes and the ears, are covered at birth. Although they are unable to walk, they are able to get around with the help of their developing sense of smell and tummy time as they search for their mother and her milk. By the time they are 2 weeks old, kittens have opened their eyes and are able to observe their environment with their own criminal eyes.
