If there is one thing cats can do just as well, if not better than dogs, it is the begging face. No matter how derpy your doggo is when he is begging for something, cat's are just built to be cuter when they want something, which is unfortunate because the cat's real personality is cold and indifferent the second you can't or won't give it what it wants. Meanwhile the dog is too dumb to know the difference and will eat a rock if you do a good enough job convincing him it's food. http://www.awesomelycute.com/2015/04/25-of-the-cutest-kittens-ever/
Luckily Instagram and other social media platforms exist, that way we can see some of the cutest cats on the internet in all their glory, from the comfort of our laptop/desktop/smartphone/smartwatch/insert other device here. Who needs the real thing when a digital copy is available whenever you want, sans the need to take care of it and clean up after it. Sounds like a great deal to me.
