Curtain Climbin’ Ankle Bitin’

The rambunctiousness meter registered new levels at NewZoo curator’s Carmen Murach’s home recently. See, she was caring for two lion cubs who’s Mama died in childbirth. After almost three months, and each kitteh weighing in around 25 pounds, Carmen decided it was time to spare the furniture move these ankle biters to the zoo.

The kittehs love their new home, attacking logs, each other and rooting for Green Bay.

  11. When big cats play with each other do they use their claws?

  12. you get a look at that pawsitude? i’m sure that zookeeper thinks she’s the boss, but we all know those paws are the ones in charge.

    (p.s. how jealous are you of her job?)

  15. “We’re not hitchhiking anymore. We’re riding!”

  16. There has been a program called Big Cat Live on the last week here in the UK so I’ve seen baby lions in their natural habitat… These are cute though :)

  17. snorglepup says:

    He rather looks like Stimpy in the first picture…

  18. Editors, you are wonderful:
    love the “Rambunctiousness Meter” idea and that they are alleged to have been “attacking logs”.

    Yet another day made sweet, thanks to C Overload.
    Again — Meg for President!! (if she wants it; it would be rather a tedious assignment, compared to managing COverload, I suppose :))

  25. Von Zeppelin says:

    “Rooting for Green Bay?” They should be Detroit fans, no?

  26. if they were in their natural habitat…of Detroit…then yes

  27. HA. Shout out to my hometown! Although technically, the N.E.W. Zoo isn’t in Green Bay, WI. :P

  35. Boomer's Babysitter says:

    I’m charmed by the little meow from one of them in the early part of the video. I also noticed the missing finger-part on the behalf of the keeper. She can have her job. I’ll watch, thanks!

  37. I love this site, thanks for all of the cute! I just wanted to comment on this entry because I see a typo. The photo credit is incorrect, it should be “Corey Wilson/Green Bay Press-Gazette” (I know the linked page just says “Press-Gazette”, but technically there is a “Green Bay” in there too)

    Keep up the cuteoverloading. :D
