SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Cougar kitties. Need we say more?

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources on Tuesday posted photos and videos after a citizen called to report finding three cougar kittens on the north slope of the Uintas.

The mother mountain lion was nowhere to be seen, according to the DWR. With cold temperatures on the way, biologists picked up the kittens and brought them to Hogle Zoo. Staff then cared for the kittens over the weekend, making sure they were warm and fed.

The kittens are now on their way to the Bronx Zoo.

Luckily, DWR officials managed to get plenty of video of the kitties before they headed out of Utah.
