Ha! Now I don’t feel so alone! I think every other species’ babies are way cuter than ours! I’m endlessly amused by my kittens, cats, and dogs, but when it comes to the babies, I find myself wondering “how long do I have to pretend to be interested in order to not look like an uncaring evil human?”

LOVE this post!!! Me too, absolutely. Babies are boring. The squirm a lot and cry an dspit and puke. Puppies are cute and they cuddle and play. There is no contest.

LOL, yes!  I joke that I have “puppy fever” right now, not baby fever.  I do oogle over babies sometimes, and occasionally feel my ovaries chiming in, but puppies make me the most excited right now hehe

yes, honestly I find baby pets way cuter than human babies- it’s hard to beat the fuzz, lol. Although at this point in my life I want neither of them- not home enough for a pet, and we’re still 3-5 years out from baby-making time. My gut says the only baby that could ever trump the fuzzy goodness would be my own, but maybe in a few years hormones will change that view, we shall see.

Yes! I don’t think babies are very cute or interesting, but if you put a kitten in front of me I’m gushing all over it and my excitement level is through the roof!

I’ve always wondered what if there’s some evolutionary purpose why humans find baby animals so damn cute, or is it a coincidence? And why aren’t our offspring that cute??

It’s too bad. Maybe if babies were cuter I’d want one, lol. But really, they look like little old people. 3 or 4 year olds are sometimes quite cute, but then they’re not cute any more really by the time they’re 7 or 8. Whereas baby animals are basically always cute.

This post makes me feel a lot better…always thought there was just something wrong with me. Hopefully it changes when it’s mine…

Oh my God…yes, yes, YES!!!!!!!  Thank the Lord, I am not alone!!!!  I was beginning to think there was something seriously WRONG with me!

I love animals…I can’t resist petting them, cuddling them, wanting to get more of them…

When it comes to babies…um.  I want one.  I do.  But I don’t like other people’s kids that much, and they usually aren’t all that cute to me.  I don’t want to hold them.  I feel fake cooing over them. They definitely don’t illicit the same “awwwww” factor that a little puppy will get.

I asked DH last week if we could get another puppy.  He said, “Puppy or baby.  Right now we can’t do both.  Up to you!”  Oh…he was joking because he is wanting to have a baby soon.  I, however, seriously had to think this over in my mind and debate between the two.  I’m not sure if that should have happened or not!

@UpstateCait:  Lol said it better than I can!

100% yes! But I am slowly starting to be interested in babies so I figure that’s a good sign lol.

Way way way more.  And I have an 8 year old and we’re TTC.  Give me a puppy, kitty, or bunny and I beg hubby for one like I’m 5.  A baby I’m like “meh”
