Fennec foxes (above), puppies and kitties do the cutest things.
Buckle your sweet-belts, everybody. Cuteroulette.com is here to sweep you into a fluffy vortex of adorable-ness.
Created by New York City design firm Hard Candy Shell, the site brings together a random assortment of “squee!”-inducing YouTube videos. Simply keep clicking the “Next Cuteness” arrow to up your dosage of incredibly precious creatures doing precious little things.
Some of the videos are old chestnuts, like “Puppy Howl” and “Surprised Kitty,” but new friends are in store, too. The videos aren’t relegated to the usual domestic pets, so you may find yourself unexpectedly charmed by a pair of fennec foxes, or suddenly soothed by the sight of a sleeping tiger kitten.
The most dangerous thing about Cuteroulette? The parade of related videos that appear at the bottom of each clip as it ends. Before you know it, you could find yourself watching 10 baby-and-doggie vids, disappearing into the black hole of “Awwwww.” (Or, like me, end up following the call of the wolf video for 20 minutes.)
Just remember: All productivity will be temporarily terminated upon visiting Cuteroulette. But if you’re having a bad day, there may be nothing better. Watch, you'll see:
