Young ones often look just like their parents. Babies are designed to resemble their parents so that they can maximize the love and affection they receive. From a biological perspective, it makes total sense.
Well, it isn’t just humans who are designed this way. Other species can also be miniature versions of mom and dad – and the result is always adorable. Its like having a tiny little pal to play with and raise all at once.
We found 50 of the cutest cats ever with their adorable mini mes, and we just had to share their sweet little faces. Get ready for cuteness overload.
1) Those Eyes
This mini-me is purrfect. Just look at those gorgeous eyes! That is so rare and beautiful.
2) So Fluffy
These fluff balls are so adorable! I wonder how big they are when their fur is pressed down. That would look crazy.
3) Uh Oh!
This little guy looks so startled! Look at the way he hugs his mama. That is true love.
4) Snuggle Time
These two are just too cute. They are so cuddly! Awwww.
5) It’s Uncanny
I can’t believe how similar these two look. This little one definitely came from his mom, there is no doubt about it.
The only difference between these two are their blue and golden eyes. They look startled, as if someone called them right before taking the picture.
7) The Sweetest
Maybe it is the way this little one’s face is stuffed between mom and the pillow, but these cats look so angelic together. How adorable!
This little one is already climbing all over everything. He looks so curious as he hangs from those blinds! I wish I could see how he got down.
9) Too Many!
Okay, this is a lot. They all look like mom except for the darker grey one. He also looks the grumpiest.
10) I Love You!
This little kitten is so in love with his mom. And with snuggles. Probably with life in general.
These two kitties are sharing a bed, and they couldn’t look any cuter. There’s nothing like spending quality time with your mini me.
12) Supper Time
These proud parent cats are watching over their mini mes. It’s adorable times 6!
13) Longest Whiskers Ever
Wow those cats have long whiskers! I guess it runs in the family. It must come in handy, right?
14) Staring Contest
It’s like looking in a tiny mirror. These two cats clearly see eye to eye, which makes their relationship that much more special.
15) You Called?
These cats both look like they’ve just been called to attention. Their glossy green eyes are just so sweet.
16) Copy Cat
Don’t you know, mom? I want to be just like you! But it’s a little scary up here…
17) Valuable Life Lessons
Your little ones want to grow up to be like you, so they will copy everything you do. Remember to set a good example!
18) Kitten Kisses
Nothing says love like a kiss on the forehead from your little one. This kitten is so full of affection!
19) So Precious
These cats are identical – right down to the mix-match colored eyes. Their genes must be incredibly rare; they look so stunning standing next to each other.
20) Look Both Ways
21) Comfy and Cozy
If you weren’t a fan of nap time before, you will be after this picture. These cats look SO comfortable together!
22) Our Bed
These cats are stretched out and they don’t want to share. Can you blame them?
23) Total Fur Ball
Look how fluffy these kitties are!! So much cuteness!
24) I’ve Got You
This kitten looks so adorable nestled up in her mom’s arms. It’s confirmed: kitty love is the best.
25) Electric Eyes
These cats’ eyes are pure gold. What a beautiful color! It stands out so boldly against their midnight black fur.
26) Cow Colored Cats
The patches on these cats are so unique. You don’t see that print much in the feline world.
27) Don’t Mess With Us
These cats sure look like they are up to something. Or is it just me?
28) So Soft
I cannot get over how comfy that rug looks! Imagine being a fluffy kitty and curling up on that super soft rug. That would feel so amazing.
These cats look so comfy curled up with each other. Kittens definitely know how to love on their little ones.
30) Cat Yoga
Or should we call it cat-crobatics? Gymnastic-kitties?
31) Here You Go
It’s okay, little one. Let me show you how to do it. Stretch all the way out so you can reach the countertop and mess with the humans’ objects.
32) Jungle Gym
This kitten loves climbing on his bigger version. That’s what maxi-mes are for, right?
33) Hide and Seek
Silly kitty. He’ll never find me here! Oh wait…
The bigger cat just looks like an older version of the little one, in a reality where he gets grumpier as the years go on.
35) So Guilty
I have no clue what these cats did, but they definitely don’t look proud of it. Come on, pull yourselves together!
36) Heart Melting
This kitten is so small she doesn’t even have much of a face yet, but she already looks just like her mom. So sweet!
These cats are taking turns yawning, and the resulting photos are hilarious! These kitties must be so sleepy.
38) This Chair Is Awesome
These cats just can’t get enough of each other. They even want to share the same chair. That’s what love is all about.
39) Our Fort
These cats have found the purrfect hiding spot. They look so snug on that shelf!
These cats don’t seem to lose their curiosity with age. When you have a mini me, you can stay young forever.
41) Super Sweet
I will teach you my ways, little one. One day you will be as cranky as me.
42) Trouble Makers
These cats are up to no good, and they are conducting their business in style. They look super edgy for two fluffy kitties.
43) Cuddles Are Everything
Cats totally love to cuddle. And it is ALWAYS adorable.
Welcome to the world, little one. You look just like your mom!
45) Happy Birthday, Human
Okay, so the mini me here is just a toy. Still, the resemblance is remarkable! Do you think this cat got so grumpy because of the party hat?
46) Too Cute
These cats with white patches on their chests are just too adorable. They must really love each other to be standing so close together.
47) Sprawled Out
These kitties look like they were relaxed before the picture was taken. Then one cat freaked out about the camera man, while the other couldn’t care less.
48) All Balled Up
This definitely looks like odd behavior. Clearly this little cat wants to grow up to be just like her mom.
Both of these cats look so startled! I guess the idea of a photo wouldn’t make much sense to them…
50) Best Photo Ever
Just when you thought these cats couldn’t get any cuter, here you have it: a mom pushing her kitten in a shopping cart. We have now reached maximum cuteness.
