People have always loved cute cats. All you have to do is search on YouTube to see how enthusiastic most people are about a really adorable house cat. But did you know that there might be some cats so cute that your sanity may come into question if they don’t make you smile?

PURRRRRRRFECT sanity if you smile at this.

If you didn’t smile when you saw those pictures, there’s no telling what you might do. I wouldn’t want you dating my daughter. And I certainly wouldn’t hire you for a job in which you had to interact with people. I would consider you too dangerous.

Doctor Randal FakeDoc of the Funny Institute of Sanity had this to say on the subject:

“We always try to be respectful in situations where someone’s sanity may be compromised. So, I’ll say this as respectfully as possible. Are you f&@king insane?! How do those f&@king cats not make you smile? Especially that last picture that had A BUNCH OF CATS. You’re a monster.”

Kittens sleeping!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But what about people who are just grumpy?

The study goes further. A second group of people were polled. All of this set of people were grumpy as hell. Their friends describe them as grumpy. They describe themselves as grumpy. They grumped all morning on the day of the study, grumpily slouching in their chairs with their arms folded, and grumping about the perfectly fine coffee being bad. And they still smiled. At the same rate. This cat makes even grumpy people smile. Only the people in this group who were both insane and grumpy continued to not smile.
