Definitely TruthInTelevision. See also CuteKitten and PreciousPuppy. When the animal is far more dangerous than cute, but gets someone squeeing anyway, that person may be a FluffyTamer; when nobody squees then someone might end up saying "NiceKitty" instead. Compare DeliciousDistraction. See DistractedByTheSexy for the sexy, human variant.s

** This happens to a fair few characters in the series, really. Brianna thinks squirrels with anti-materiel rifles are just the cutest things ever, and Brittany goes full squee for any time Tiffy does or wears something cute, especially in Tiffy's infant years, but the worst offender is Ayane "Mistress" Anno. She loves EVERYTHING cute, to the point of fetishization. She sleeps with giant plushies and loves all manner of baby animals, even if they do get scared of her "cursed, fear-inducing eyes." One GD-Tangent side comic has her take in a kitten with abnormally large and scary claws, since she feels a kinship with it as someone who tries to be cute but is cursed to look scary.
* Lockjaw of Comicbook/{{the Inhumans}} basically looks like a monstrous pug [[CanisMajor the size of a VW Beetle]]. When he shows up in New Jersey, most everyone freaks and runs away... apart from [[Comicbook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan]], who thinks he looks [[FreakyIsCool absolutely adorable]], and coos over him like most people would with a normal puppy.

* ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} spends a strip being bothered by a passing woman this way, wanders away in the next strip deciding the next person to talk BabyTalk to him "gets his clock cleaned", and ends up face-to-face with a unbalanced-looking man -- piercings, HellBentForLeather -- delivering a similar, "Why, hehwo widdle puddy tat!" Besides a look of surprise, his own reaction is not recorded. (This made it into a short in the AnimatedAdaptation.)

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', the current Archive is a human girl (nicknamed Ivy by Harry.) with magical access to everything ever recorded by humanity, as well as the combined memories of all previous Archives. She is articulate, mature and scarily powerful, and when she states that if Dresden backs out of his duel she'll take it personally and kill him, Dresden realizes she ''is'' fully capable of doing so without breaking a sweat. But when Dresden's cat Mister suddenly appears, she shouts "KITTY!" and starts playing with him, making you realize she's still a 7-year-old girl. Her bodyguard (a HalfHumanHybrid SociopathicHero CombatPragmatist with a thing for explosions)'s reaction to this: "Now ''that'' is scary." Mister is [[MegaNeko the size of a small tiger]] and isn't above pushing Harry around, but he seems to quite like Ivy. Maybe a little of this goes both ways.

** Lord Vetinari's usually very reserved aunt Lady Roberta Meserole does this whenever her lapcat is around -- as does Vetinari with his own dog to a lesser extent. When we see teenage Vetinari (i.e., before he gets the dog), he finds his aunt's devotion to her cat extremely irritating. He also thinks that if she's ''going'' to have a pet, it should be a [[RightHandCat long-haired white cat which she could stroke in a sinister way]].

** Another subtle example earlier (the season 3 episode "The Abandoned") when a baby [[spoiler: Jem'Hadar]] is found and brought to the infirmary. When [[CommandingCoolness Sisko]] comes in he starts holding the child, stands with a slightly absent smile on his face and has to ask Jadzia to repeat what she's saying about orphanages and researching the child's unknown species. Then he subtly gets overcome with parenting nostalgia and when he gets to his quarters he asks his 16-year-old son Jake for a hug. (This is [[ContrastingSequelMainCharacter in contrast]] to TNG's Picard, who was reserved and articulate and though he didn't ''hate'' children, was uncomfortable around them.)

** One episode had Lily debating with Ted and Robin whether or not she and Marshall should start having kids. Her feelings are very mixed until she finds a baby's sock left at her apartment by a neighbour and starts gushing over it, unable to say anything but, "sock!" [[MaternallyChallenged Robin]] and Ted soon succumb to the cuteness too, but for Barney, it brings up some of his buried emotional issues (his DisappearedDad ones most likely,) so he goes to sing karaoke while crying the whole time.

* Whenever [[TheFlintstones Fred Flintstone]], normally a rough-around-the-edges Ralph Kramden-type, sees his daughter Pebbles, he goes all sweet and cute BumblingDad and starts to gush about his "little Pebbly-poo".

** On another note from Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, [[WebVideo/YouCanPlayThis JewWario]] would do this whenever he saw a kitten or a catgirl, proclaiming "KITTY!" in a high-pitched voice.
