The word 'cute' is defined as 'attractive in a pretty or endearing way.' We see adorable kittens or puppies, and we exclaim 'Cute!'  But it doesn't have to be a small cuddly fluffy pet. It could also be a Giant Panda Bear that's cute. But then, someone just had to ask this important question: 

Why do Giant Pandas have black-patched Panda eyes?

The answer:

Because they wouldn't be so cute without them.
