Newborn Cheetahs Will Cure Your Hump Day Blues

Hey, how's your Wednesday going? Just okay? Well, pay your troubles no mind — your life is about to improve drastically with the help of some tiny spotted felines. That's right: The world just got a little more cheetah-rific thanks to these two adorable cubs.
The cubs were born on September 1 at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park's cheetah breeding facility. They will be hand-reared by the staff, who have already reported that the wee ones are flourishing. "They are great eaters. They started playing when they were just three or four days old," said lead keeper Eileen Neff via the zoo's Flickr account. "They could barely walk at that time, so it was pretty interesting seeing them tumbling around with each other."

In case the vision of baby cheetahs tumbling around with one another didn't provide the necessary dose of cuteness to get you through hump day, get ready to actually explode with adorableness. The cheetahs are going to be "animal ambassadors," which means they'll each be paired with a dog friend.
Yes, all cubs at Safari Park are given a canine for companionship. "The dog's body language communicates to the cheetah that there's nothing to fear in new or public surroundings, which relaxes and calms the cheetah," reads the zoo's statement.
