LIONS!!

There's a live streaming webcam of a momma lion and her four baby cubs here. I have seen sooooo much cuteness!!!!!!!!!!

It's apparently a pretty good zoo where the animals have a large, natural territory to roam and stuff. This is just the nursery.

You did it again.
I got my entire daily dose of cute in less than two minutes.
Now write me a receipt so I can tip on outta here...

Thanks, Laurie.  I love lions.  I blame it on Born Free, which I saw at an impressionable age.

What's even cuter is that they are apparently Norwegian lions.

Thanks for sharing, Laurie!

I love it when Mama Lioness grooms her cubs. I can practically hear them say, "STOP IT, MAAAAAAAAAWWWWMMM!!! JEEZ!" Especially when she licks them and they fall over onto their backs, and she continues to groom them and also when they try to stumble away from bath time. LOVE IT!

Edit: OMG! One of the cubs is on its side, and mom is grooming it, and the cub is pushing at mom's nose with its paw!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

This is amazing. Thank you so much for bringing this into my life, Laurie!

I wonder how long the camera will be active. I wish it would stay around forever, but those cubs are growing and they'll eventually move them to someplace bigger where they can't be filmed as easily and closely.

Hey, Laurie, I got to hug a lion cub once.  It remains one of the best things I've ever done.

Also, don't think I didn't notice your cagey response during Tom's questioning last night:  you carefully specified that you'd never had a Filipino manservant.  That leaves a lot of other options open, woman.

im watching them sleep.

its the opposite of boring.  in fact, its very relaxing watch them breathe in, breathe out. 






thanks, Laurie.  this is cool.

It's just as well. I would probably spend 24 hours watching the lions sleep and frolic and feed and groom and stuff if I could.

isn't a nuzzle far superior to a kiss?

I always thought so....

There's some pretty aggressive grooming going on right now.

Future wife found this one: http://nationalzoo.si.edu/Animals/SmallMammals/default.cfm?Cam=BFF

Not as cute as lion cubs, but endearing little ball of fur. The baby is a little weird looking.
