Def.: The sense of calm and joy that can be attained by looking at puppies, kittens, and other cute baby animals, either in person or real life. (Can also, honestly, apply to grown animals, but oftentimes the viewer will still refer to them as puppies, kittens, etc.)
Usage: I am always glad to see our family pup, but especially when I’ve been having a day and need to experience the baby animal effect.
