The internet is a fantastic place full of funny and exciting videos and pictures of cats just waiting to go viral. And if you’re a cat lover like me, then this story will have your heart bursting with joy at the pictures.
Little Blossom is a precious little rescue kitten who is the latest trending craze on social media – and you can see why. She is currently living with her foster mom, Lauren Boutz. Two of her siblings, Bubbles and Buttercup, are also residing in the home with her. However, Blossom is definitely the most famous of the bunch and is a social media sensation.
When foster mom Lauren decided to share a few pictures of the adorable trio, she didn’t expect the pictures to go viral like they did. But the reason behind the popularity was simple: Blossom’s little smile.
While you might not believe it, it’s true. The little kitten is clearly smiling for the camera, and her 41-year-old foster mother was so impressed by it.
“Blossom smiling for the camera 😍,” Lauren posted to Facebook. “I foster kittens for the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department. These are my Powerpurr Girls: Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. They’re about 5 weeks old now #FosteringSavesLives #AdoptDontShop #OneAlbuquerque.”
The close-ups of Blossom are charming beyond words, and you can’t help but be captivated by the gorgeous kitten. And it’s clear that Blossom enjoys being in front of the camera as well. She certainly knows how to strike a pose for her fans.
When Lauren’s friend, Gary Sanchez, uploaded the additional close-ups, the internet went crazy for them – fans could get enough of little Blossom. Her close up photos have gained over 200,000 shares on Facebook, as well as countless likes across social media, including Instagram. Currently, Blossom is one of the most famous kittens on the web. On Twitter, her pictures collected over a million likes!
Roughly a week after the original pictures began trending, Lauren decided to follow up with a Blossom update, including some more heart-warmingly delightful photos.
She wrote, “I told Blossom that she’s famous now. #FosteringSavesLives #AdoptDontShop”
