Three cutie Cougar cubs are getting hooked up at Oregon Zoo!
The little kitties headed to the zoo's veterinary medical center to get some TLC.
The cubs are only temporarily hanging out at the zoo until they can catch flights to their permanent homes.
All female, those seven-week-old siblings are "incredibly cute, but definitely not cuddly," according to an Oregon Zoo keeper.
"They are tiny and feisty. They’re only 8 pounds right now— about the size of small house cats— but with feet the size of hockey pucks. They still have blue eyes and fuzzy spotted coats, which they will eventually grow out of.
They’re nervous of course, but they’re starting to calm down. When we brought the third cub in, the first two were huddled in back of their crate, growling. Within 20 minutes, the third cub slinked out of her crate and joined her sisters, and then they all settled down together."
Two of the cubs are going to head to the Lee Richardson Zoo in Garden City, Kansas while the other is going to the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park.
There are already other cats and trained keepers there waiting for them.
So glad these cubs are going to head to forever homes… we couldn't be happier!!
