Animals are cute, right? We are all on the same page about that? Because I am not. Yes, I will concede that some animals are cute but plenty of them are just plain weird.
Like, have you ever seen a squid? Try to tell me that a squid is cute. See? Can't be done. What with their tentacles and ink pouches. They're disgusting!
Then there are animals that seem to be both cute and creepy. Maybe they have big, loving eyes but they are covered in spikes and teeth. The cuteness does not cancel out the creepiness, nor does the creepiness outweigh the cuteness. It exists as both. Like Schrödinger's cat, which is also cute and creepy.
