Definition: An uncontrollable urge to squeeze, slap or punch the closest person when you see anything that is deemed extremely cute.
Now, unless you’ve been exposed to cuteness aggression you may be wondering what on earth I am talking about. There has been an epidemic of cuteness aggression in my clinic recently. We have had a run of EXTREMELY CUTE animals coming into the clinic. This has resulted in a couple of things. One of my vets, whom I love dearly, has cuteness aggression by proxy. We all run for the hills whenever she sees a cutie pie as well all know that we’re going to cop it – a great big thump to the arm as she gets super excited and oh’s and ah’s over the puppy, kitten, dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, duckling etc. And the rest of us looking end up looking at the face and fighting the urges to squeeze it, eat it or squash it.
I know this sounds completely insane! Whilst our hearts are filled with extreme love for these animals, we do have these bizarre urges to eat/squeeze/squish our patients. I assure you none of us would act on it! It generally has us rolling around in stitches about the very strange words that pop out of our mouths.
Now if you can relate to any of these feelings I warn you from scrolling down. I have included in this post some graphically cute pictures which can set suffers into a squeezing frenzy…
