The science of cute by Vsauce

Michael Stevens from Vsauce explains why we consider cute things as being cute: because we love our offspring. Cute is a bit disproportionate, has round shapes, big eyes and so on.

It seems that the dog, man’s best friend, was built into being cute and somehow evolved on this path. Like cats, sloths and many other pets one might have at home. Enjoy the cuteness.
