The cat (Felis catus) is a domestic species of small carnivorous mammal.
It is the only domesticated species in the family Felidae and is often referred to as the domestic cat to distinguish it from the wild members of the family. A cat can either be a house cat, a farm cat or a feral cat; the latter ranges freely and avoids human contact.
Domestic cats are valued by humans for companionship and their ability to kill rodents. About 60 cat breeds are recognized by various cat registries. ...read more.
Cats are way cuter than dogs but snakes are definitely the best! Cats should be second to snakes and dogs should be at the bottom of the list because they smell, they bark at every little thing, they slobber and they lick your face which is plain disgusting. I despise dogs. This is a zombie dog-infested planet. These creatures are manipulating us to serve for them so they don't have to do any work on their own. BOO DOGS
To the person at the top in the dog comments:
First of all, everyone tells me I look beautiful and smell nice. I've gotten over 10 compliments in one day because of my natural beauty. I never wear makeup if I don't have to. Also, everyone says I'm very smart, sweet and funny and a good friend. So I suggest you shut up before you say something you'll regret later :)
My cat is the fluffiest and sweetest thing! She gives me kisses, comforts me when I'm sad, and snuggles me! She is my best friend. Not surprised that cats beat out all other animals!
I wish I had a pet cat. These things are just so adorable, intelligent and playful. I love dogs and most of the rest of the pets in this list as well, but cats are my favourite.
The dog or domestic dog (Canis familiaris or Canis lupus familiaris) is a domesticated descendant of the wolf, and is characterized by an upturning tail. The dog is derived from an ancient, extinct wolf, and the modern wolf is the dog's nearest living relative. The dog was the first species to be domesticated, by hunter–gatherers over 15,000 years ago, before the development of agriculture. Due to their long association with humans, dogs have expanded to a large number of domestic individuals and gained the ability to thrive on a starch-rich diet that would be inadequate for other canids. ...read more.
As cute as cats are, I had to vote dog based on the connection I have on them. These animals are loyal, which only makes them more cute.
Dogs are 100% cuter as they don't only ask for love, they give it back and would be lost without you however cats would happily live without you.
No! This is not right! Dogs should be BEFORE cats. Dogs are way cuter than cats. This list is so wrong!
Dog should be number 1, there are ugly dogs just like all animals, but on average they're the cutest.
Rabbits, also known as bunnies or bunny rabbits, are small mammals in the family Leporidae (which also contains the hares) of the order Lagomorpha (which also contains the pikas). Oryctolagus cuniculus includes the European rabbit species and its descendants, the world's 305 breeds of domestic rabbit. Sylvilagus includes 13 wild rabbit species, among them the seven types of cottontail. The European rabbit, which has been introduced on every continent except Antarctica, is familiar throughout the world as a wild prey animal and as a domesticated form of livestock and pet. With its widespread effect on ecologies and cultures, the rabbit is, in many areas of the world, a part of daily life—as ...read more.
I don't understand why Rabbits can't make it to first position. They are the cutest animals in the world no matter what the breed.
I love my rabbit and he is the best but be careful, they need lots of hay, water, pellets and a large pen (unless they are out at least 6 hours) also they poop a lot and that's not cute
The horse is an odd-toed, hoofed mammal of the taxonomic family Equidae whose sole major subspecies (Equus ferus caballus) is a domesticate, although wild subspecies have survived into the modern period. All subspecies, including the two extant ones, descend from the Pleistocene Equus ferus. The horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed creature, Eohippus, into the large, single-toed animal of today. Humans began domesticating horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread by 3000 BC. Horses in the subspecies caballus are domesticated, although some domesticated populations live in the wild as feral horses. These feral populations are not true wild horses, as this term is used to describe horses that have never been domesticated. There is an extensive, specialized vocabulary used to describe equine-related concepts, covering everything from anatomy to life stages, size, colors, markings, breeds, locomotion, and behavior. ...read more.
I Love Horses I had one he was amazing (even though I could not ride him
Hamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. The subfamily contains about 25 species, classified in six or seven genera.
Hamsters are pretty much small versions of dogs. They have personalities and emotions, just like dogs and humans. Also, just look at their faces and cute hands!
This should be number one. Hamster are so fun and cute. Dogs are also playful and good pets but they are not really cute. Although some dog breeds are cute.
Hamsters should be the cutest!
Betta's little grumpy faces are so cute!
I have a sweeper fish and it is so scary and evil it bit my 3 fish: Angel fish, 2 goldfish may you rest in peace
Goldfish are cute
I have birds now. They are PRECIOUS! They are so playful and active, and I totally agree with the cute part. More than cute. But clipping their wings can cause stress, so we don't do that.
Chickens make great pets if raised with love and care!
I wish I had a bird.
So many cute ones
8 Guinea Pig
The guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.
Guinea pigs are the cutest creatures in the world! Second: fox Third: hedgehog Fourth: sugar glider Fifth: Axolotl
They are a perfect size and are like mini dogs except much cuter and small.
We just got two of them few weeks ago and they're adorable.
I voted for guinea pig because I like their teddy face.
Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, flying squirrels, and prairie dogs amongst other rodents.
Lizards are a widespread group of squamate reptiles, with over 7,000 species, ranging across all continents except Antarctica, as well as most oceanic island chains. The group is paraphyletic as it excludes the snakes and Amphisbaenia; some lizards are more closely related to these two excluded groups than they are to other lizards. Lizards range in size from chameleons and geckos a few centimeters long to the 3 meter long Komodo dragon. ...read more.
Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes over 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight. Exceptions include the diurnal northern hawk-owl and the gregarious burrowing owl.
Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects, and other birds, although a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except the polar ice caps and some remote islands.
Owls are divided into two families: the true (or typical) owl family, Strigidae, and the barn-owl family, Tytonidae. ...read more.
A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae.
How wont you like these cute exotic pets! They should be a lot higher!
They are so so cute
I love my hedgehog
The fennec fox or fennec is a small nocturnal fox found in the Sahara of North Africa. Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which also serve to dissipate heat.
I was hoping this amazingly cute animal would be on this list. I was even telling my friends on how I would move away from my area just to get this animal. VOTE FENNEC FOX
I love this animal and as much as I wish I could have one I can't get one. I would totally recommend one as a pet
I voted for fox because when they close their eyes, it is SO CUTE!
A pet? Its cute but...I'm sure no one has it as a pet...
The ferret is the domesticated form of the European polecat, a mammal belonging to the same genus as the weasel, Mustela of the family Mustelidae.
Hoe is ferret under chicken!?! These guys are the cutest things on Earth!
I have a ferret and he is the cutest thing ever!
Cutest and funniest animal ever.
They are the second cutest pet!
Turtles are an order of reptiles known as Testudines, characterized by a shell developed mainly from their ribs. Modern turtles are divided into two major groups, the side-necked turtles and hidden neck turtles, which differ in the way the head retracts. There are 360 living and recently extinct species of turtles, including land-dwelling tortoises and freshwater terrapins. They are found on most continents, some islands and, in the case of sea turtles, much of the ocean. Like other reptiles, birds, and mammals, they breathe air and do not lay eggs underwater, although many species live in or around water. Genetic evidence typically places them in close relation to crocodilians and birds. ...read more.
Chinchillas are two species of crepuscular rodents, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels. They are native to the Andes mountains in South America and live in colonies called "herds" at high elevations up to 4,270 m.
Their the cutest thing!
Because they're so fluffy so cute and I think in my opinion that they are the best pet
Snakes are elongated, limbless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes. Like all other squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. Many species of snakes have skulls with several more joints than their lizard ancestors, enabling them to swallow prey much larger than their heads (cranial kinesis). To accommodate their narrow bodies, snakes' paired organs (such as kidneys) appear one in front of the other instead of side by side, and most have only one functional lung. Some species retain a pelvic girdle with a pair of vestigial claws on either side of the cloaca. Lizards have evolved elongate bodies without limbs or with greatly reduced limbs about twenty-five times independently via convergent evolution, leading to many lineages of legless lizards.These resemble snakes, but several common groups of legless lizards have eyelids and external ears, which snakes lack, although this rule is not universal (see Amphisbaenia, Dibamidae, and Pygopodidae). ...read more.
Snakes are so underrated! Should be in the top 5 at least!
Easily the best
17 Sugar Glider
The sugar glider is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass.
I voted for sugar glider because they are small and adorable.
I love to keep some cute and tiny sugar gliders as pets.
I wish I had one myself
Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.
Rats are as loyal and affectionate as dogs. Technically, rats ARE dogs. So therefore, rats are actually number 3 on this list.
Rats are amazing! I have two rats at home! they are so cute, smart and afectionite! I love my rats and I want everyone on the planet to have a pet rat. then they will see how absolutly amazing they are!
Amazing pets. All haters will burn.
Super friendly and cute
Frogs are a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura.
A gerbil is a small mammal of the order Rodentia. Once known simply as "desert rats", the gerbil subfamily includes about 110 species of African, Indian, and Asian rodents, including sand rats and jirds, all of which are adapted to arid habitats.
I want some but my mom won't let me get some. She said their to much like rats.
They look so cute
Deer are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the elk, reindeer, the Western roe deer, and the Eurasian elk.
I voted for deer because I like their cute antlers.
A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar, along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog.
Really, no pig on this list? Teacup pigs and other pigs are so cute!
A mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet.
I have two mice and they give me so much joy!

The goat or domestic goat (Capra hircus) is a domesticated species of goat-antelope typically kept as livestock. It was domesticated from the wild goat (C. aegagrus) of Southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. The goat is a member of the animal family Bovidae and the tribe Caprini, meaning it is closely related to the sheep. There are over 300 distinct breeds of goat. It is one of the oldest domesticated species of animal, according to archaeological evidence that its earliest domestication occurred in Iran at 10,000 calibrated calendar years ago.
Goat-herding is an ancient tradition that is still important in places such as Egypt.
Goats have been used for milk, meat, fur, and skins across much of the world. Milk from goats is often turned into goat cheese. ...read more.
