I won’t claim to be a huge animal lover. I don’t even own one right now. The last time I had a pet was in third grade, and it broke my heart because the poor dog became rabid and died in harrowing conditions. I haven’t personally looked after an animal since then.
In spite of the traumatic experience, I’ve secretly harbored a fondness for furry, four-legged creatures, quietly admiring them in the myriad of videos and photos scattered in cyberspace. It was this soft spot for pets that made me publish a compilation of Instagram photos showing Ford Broncos and dogs last year, for instance.
And so when I saw these images posted to Instagram by Toyota Japan a few days ago, I just knew I had to share them. These pics show an adorable kitten playing with a cardboard Prius. I have no idea what these pictures are for or about—the caption is in Japanese—but I’m not even interested to know. The photos are more than enough to put a smile on my face.
I hope they are for you as well.
