I shall start this post with a big “awww”! Meet Memebon, the Japanese baby kitten. She’s an Exotic Shorthair and cuts a teeny weeny figure with a humongous amount of cute! I’m usually a sane person but cute animals like this simply render me weak and powerless. I can only surrender to the cute!

Memebon

I mean, look at her! Isn’t she the cutest thing in the world? *melts into a puddle of goo* Right now the only words out of my mouth are “aaah”, “awww”, and “so cute!” where are her ears anyway?

Kawaii overload!

"Ehn! Wanna get out of this bed but I'm too smaaall! Ehn!"

“Ehn! Wanna get out of this bed but I’m too smaaall! Ehn!” (Are those little stuffed sheep in there?)

"Hey, what's all this fluff doing?"

“Hey, what’s all this fluff doing?” *presses around with tiny paw but tiny little black tail gets in the way*

Sigh!

Sigh!

"I weigh even less than Hello Kitty, who's just the weight of three small apples!"

“I weigh even less than Hello Kitty, who’s just the weight of three small apples!”

"Lemme out of this bowl, pweeease?"

“Lemme out of this bowl, pweeease?”

"Ye humans there, my baby's not for eating! Meow!"

Mommy’s (wearing a pink bell) here to help!

And Mommy’s all “ye humans there, whaddya put her in all these cups and bowls for? She’s nice and yummy, but she’s not for eating! Meow!”

"I wuv my little plastic fwens! They are the only things teenier than me!"

“I wuv my little plastic fwens! They are the only things teenier than me!”

(The Japanese really know how to ramp up the cute with toys and props!)

Baby kitty's first shower. "Bath time!"

Baby kitty’s first shower. “Bath time!”

Kitty's all naked and wet and helpless! Awww!

All naked and wet and helpless! Awww!

"Ehn! Mush... Get... Head... Through! Ehn! Almost there!"

“Ehn! Mush… Get… Head… Through! Ehn! Almost there!”

"Nobody touch her!" says the proud and caring Mommy.

There’s Mommy again. “No one can touch my babeh!”.

Now we know where baby kitty got that black streak on her face!

"Little blue octopus is my bedtime buddy. Must hug."

“Little blue octopus is my bedtime buddy. Must hug with all four paws.”

"Blankie!"

“Blankie!”

Ain’t she an adorable little doll? Almost too good to be true!

*sucks paw to sleep*

Tell me, are you not charmed yet? I saw some of these Exotic Shorthair cuties at a recent kitty beauty pageant.

Admire Memebon at Memebon.jp, a Japanese site with many other cute cats. She’s all grown up now and of course bigger, but still adorable (in the grown-up cat kind of way).
