Their tiny little noses and big eyes simply melt our hearts and it's really not hard to see why.

But why do we find puppies and kittens in particular so cute?

Apparently, their fur has a lot to do with this. Studies have shown that primates instinctively seek out, even need, soft pleasant contact, preferably with our own parents and kin, but the basic tactile sensation will do usually... so any animal which seems to be all soft fur is going to be instinctively more appealing.

Another factor is because they're babies.

Austrian scientist Konrad Lorenz coined the term “Kindchenschema." As the name suggests, it basically proposes that the more qualities and features something has in common with human babies, the cuter it’s perceived as being.

But putting the science aside...

But for those who are unfamiliar, in each episode, the reality show follows several different litters of baby animals, often puppies and kittens, from when they are just days-old squirming bundles of joy through the major milestones the occur in each baby animal’s first few months of life.
