Like it or not, Donald Trump‘s face is here to stay. From being named Time magazine’s person of the year, to daily coverage of his transitional plans, you can’t glance at a news source—let alone social media—without seeing Trump’s face several times over.

Or can you?

With the help of a Google Chrome extension called “Make America Kittens Again” you can find sweet relief, in the form of kittens. 

The extension finds headlines with Trump’s name in them and replaces the associated images with pictures of adorable little furballs snuggling, playing, and being generally kittenish.

The tool works particularly well on the New York Times. Simply pop the extension into Chrome, and coverage of Trump’s cabinet is transformed into a full-on kitten party.

Unfortunately, as some reviewers have noted, the extension does not appear to work as well elsewhere. As a result, other news sources remain totally Trump-ified, and void of kittens. Sad!
