Oh hello there, it’s nice to see you! Now that it’s Kitten Season, Kitten Happy Hour is starting again! Check back here weekly for new photos on adorable, adoptable kittens.

“I have food on my face, don’t I?”

MAY 25

Welcome to the 1st Annual Helen Woodward Animal Center Sweetest Kitten Face Contest! Adorable kittens will go whisker to whisker to see who has the sweetest face in the whole Center. The competition is sure to be cutthroat, and claws could come out.

Note: There is no talent portion of the competition (all contestants listed “looking cute” as their talent) nor swimsuit portion. (They started taking off the swimsuits as soon as we put them on.)

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started!

Our first contestant is Minnie. She suggests just calling the winner now, because it’s clearly her.


MAY 26

Our second contestant is Honey Nut. His claim to fame? Having the world’s most boopable nose!


MAY 27

Next we have Barracuda. She believes her adorable face is the answer to World Peace.


MAY 28

Our final contestant is Cocoa. We made him stop playing with his feather toy to compete in this contest (see the remnants in his mouth?), and he really just wants to get back to that. Ok, Cocoa, you may go now.


MAY 29

And the winner of the First Annual Helen Woodward Animal Center Sweetest Kitten Face Contest is...all of them! (Bet you didn’t see that coming.) Congratulations to all our cute contestants!

Are you a morning person or a night owl? We wanted to ask our kittens, so we woke them up from naps. Here are their reactions. (Note: No kittens were harmed during this experiment, though some were irritated.)

Kitten Loaves

Does your cat ever morph into an adorable rectangular prism, similar to a loaf of bread? This phenomenon is known as the Cat Loaf. Our kittens are only a few months old, but they're already mastering the technique.

Excellent form, Galen!
