I cannot be sure whether the person who posted this image had thought about it at all at the time, but it was inevitable that this one would have launched the kitten-model avalanche that followed.
Reddit user Hobolovechic has shared an absolutely awesome image of her kitten under a great title: This is Olivia. She’s a model.
As one viewer put it, “that’s so sweet I think I just got diabetes”. Immediately people started inundating the comment thread with images of their own modeling felines, which has only amplified the effect the original image had.
