Question about Japan

What is the Japanese perspective on cuteness? Sometimes when I talk to people who are Japanese, (in Japanese) I’ll hear them say かわいい! Usually I hear them say it after a statement and it doesn’t even need to be about something that’s “cute” (puppies, etc.)

In other words, it seems that the word かわいい is not just reserved for things like puppies, baby animals, etc.? Would that be correct to say? What other things do Japanese people maybe commonly find “cute”?
