Equivalent of Kawaii (Japanese) or cute (aesthetic) in Ukrainian?

Hello! I am wondering if there is a word in Ukrainian for things seen as Kawaii or cute? Or "cuteness"? I do not mean to ask for a word that describes someone as cute in the sense that they are pretty/beautiful, but more like puppy-dog cuteness. I am doing a little bit of research and would appreciate any help! Thank you :-)

I was told милий when I asked what cute was (it was in reference to a cartoon pig so hopefully shouldn't have been confused with beautiful), but I'm not sure how common this is or if it's the best translation.
