The Lion King recreated with kittens and narrated by children is the cutest thing you will see this week

If you watched The Lion King and didn’t cry when Mufasa was trampled to death then you are a robot, devoid of emotions, or physically incapable of producing tears. Maybe I’m just a big softy. After all, not only do cartoon animals dying make me cry, but so does Cedric from The Mars Volta’s voice. C’mon, it’s called empathy! Look, you don’t need to agree with me on this point to appreciate the power of cute. Cute are those things that make you smile and forget you’re a grown-up with responsibilities and crippling debts. Cute is a child’s giggle, a dog being visibly excited when seeing it’s owner. Cute is watching children narrate a re-enactment of The Lion King, where kittens and cats play the roles of the lions, and the scenery and supporting cast are cardboard and paper cut-outs colored in with crayon.

This is exactly what The Pet Collective’s latest offering consists of, which should make your heart melt. Unless you are a robot, devoid of emotion or incapable of understanding cute.

this articles on this site have just gone to the dogs. Sick of the attempts at zany humor and sick of the biased crappy articles. You guys had an interesting thing going before, now middleasy is last on my list of mma sites to view. ftw

Andy's legs snapped off and you're posting FOOKING kitten videos!

You should be investigating if he's getting surgery not looking a freaking cats.

Was perhaps the biggest night of fights for 2013 and every reputable MMA site has covered every detail possible already.

Its almost 24 hours since the fight and no comments on even Ronda. When they do talk about her, its just absolute bias with not an ounce of objectivity.

Expect more articles on kittens for the next 48 - no make that 72 hours - then maybe they'll feature articles on the other fights.

He's had surgery and it was successful. They're estimating 3 to 6 months to recover - but everybody including Dana is probably resigned to the fact that this is retirement.

Now is the time he can focus on that dream fight boxing against Roy Jones Junior. Theres gotta be a silver lining to the dark cloud from UFC 168. Its probably a perfect time for him to retire - rather a broken bone than a brutal beating (it would have been only a matter of time)

I didn't see one kitten get trampled to death nor get ripped apart by Hyenas. What Horseshit storytelling.

What the fuck is this massive pile of shit?

"I know none of the readers have a sense of humor and feel like they need to read every article we post so let's do something light hearted and post a cute cat video."

This is what I imagine the middle easy guys were thinking before posting this.
