15 “Illegally Smol” Kittens Who Make Up The World’s Cutest Criminals

There's a subreddit for just about any interest, so it's not surprising that there's one dedicated to pictures of teeny-tiny kittens!

The r/IllegallySmolCats forum is devoted to felines who are so diminutive "it should be illegal." Each picture is cuter than the last, featuring little fluff balls of all colors and breeds whose only crime is being way too cute for their own good. If being "smol" is illegal, these kitties are hardened criminals!
