As always, though, the internet reminds us how small the world really is — even the feline world! Someone put together a series of photos by various sources that show just how similar black cats and black panthers really are, and the result is both majestic and adorable.

Both types of cats stalk their prey, but it’s hard to take smaller kitties seriously with those adorable eyes!
