The ‘Murder Mittens’ Group Is All About Cats Showing Off Their Claws, And Here Are 40 Of The Most Scarily Cute Ones

Cats are undeniably cute and can make us forget that they are descended from big cats like lions and panthers. However, there is a subreddit named ‘Murder Mittens’ where cat owners share pictures of their felines seemingly about to ‘kill’ them (with cuteness, of course).

Be prepared to be charmed by the unexpectedly large scratchies of small cattos, the panther-like claws of well-groomed floofs, and even the sight of them reaching for a knife in your kitchen. These shockingly adorable photos are bound to make you feel weak in the knees.


As you scroll through, feel free to upvote your favorite pictures and share photos of your own cats’ ‘murder mittens’ in the comment section. However, be cautious when viewing this list around your cat, as you wouldn’t want to give them any ideas! As a cat owner, it is essential to take good care of your pet’s claws. To learn more about cat claw health, read Bored Panda’s interview with the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, Cats Protection.

Lastly, make sure to visit the r/murdermittens subreddit, which already has a whopping 140k members. We are certain that cat-loving Pandas would be a welcome addition to their community!
