Today’s Solutions: December 05, 2021

For all you big cat lovers on the Internet, we have a little something for you. In both Miami and Washington DC, zoos have announced the successful birthing of rare baby clouded leopards and cheetahs—and the photos are incredibly adorable.

Both cheetahs and clouded leopards are considered “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, which keeps track of the world’s endangered species. The cheetah cubs are part of a breeding program aimed at sustaining the number of cheetahs in human care. Zoo Miami’s kittens, born on February 11th, are their parents’ second successful litter and are “developing well,” according to the zoo.

Zoo Miami shared 10 photos of its two kittens (one male, one female) on Instagram, providing a special glimpse into the young cats’ lives, which are especially precious since clouded leopards are one of the most secretive species of wild cats. If you want to have a heart-melting look for yourself, follow the link right here.
