Get your best “aww” ready and try to keep those emotions in check, please, ladies. We think we’ve captured the definition of cuteness in a single shot here.

The Vamps’ lead guitarist, James McVey, teamed up with PETA to star in a brand-new campaign shot by renowned celebrity photographer Ruth Rose. Snuggled up to the two adorable kittens from The Mayhew Animal Home, he was, of course, a total hit. James urges everyone to save lives by choosing to adopt homeless animals. The advert reminds James’ fans of the importance of adopting animals and that we should never buy them from breeders or pet shops.

We know James is a big cat lover, so we thought he was the perfect ambassador to encourage people to check out their local animal shelter or rescue group.

“There’s millions of animals in shelters – kittens … puppies, dogs, a variety of animals”, says McVey. “So go to a shelter, adopt and save a life!”

    Great video, great message and you do great work, but come on PETA – “try to keep those emotions in check, please, ladies” – aaagh! Sexist! I’m a cat loving bloke (like James McVey?) and it got an ‘aah’ moment or two from me. Cats get my emotions every time – sorry must go, our most important family member is giving me ‘the look’ that says “feed me” ….
