Newly Adopted Kitten Always Looks Like She's Smiling

SALT LAKE CITY (KSTU) -- The kitten that is going viral for her constant Cheshire smile is from right here in Utah.

This "smiley cat" is the complete opposite of grumpy cat.

Temma Martin with Best Friends Utah Adoption Center said before "Baby Rey" hit the jackpot with her forever home, she started out at the Best Friends Kitten Nursery in Salt Lake City.
