Why do we find furry animals cute?
If it was simply a question of displaced maternal instinct you would think we would find hairless things, eg baby birds, naked mole rats and such more cute than say a fluffy bunny, because human babies are hairless and yet its almost the opposite. Why is it that humans are drawn to fluffy things and off put by the naked ones we when ourselves are lacking in fluff?
