Hello little baby serval! You're so cute!
A serval is more closely related to an African golden cat and the desert lynx than a cheetah; it just has cheetah style spots.
It looks like it has the body of a big cat, but the head of a house cat! It's so adorbz! Just look at those ears!!
This little guy is Sheldon and he was recently born at Washington state's Point Defiance Zoo.
The kutie kitty is growing up alongside a Tiger cub and a baby Clouded Leopard, who are his play buddies!
They often play behind the scenes but now they also do in view of the public so zoo guests can take in all the cuteness.
What's surprising and extra cute about servals is they looooove water!
They play in it, swim in it and jump into it, part of practicing for a hunting method they use to catch birds in flight!
So cute! A kitty who loves water and has the body of a big cat? Yup, we think he wins the award for cutie of the year!
