If you’re anywhere near Philly right now, know that a crazy cat lady in the OneTravel office is unreasonably jealous of you (as in, me). This past April, the Philadelphia Zoo got its paws on a litter of African Black-Footed Cat kittens.

As you can gather from the photos, they’re fluffy and impossibly tiny. So tiny that Uproxx reports that the breed’s adults weigh between three and four pounds, making them the smallest cats in the entire world.

How so much cute could fit into such bite-sized kittens is one of Mother Nature’s miracles. And for the record, they’re named Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion after the dragons on Game of Thrones. Go ahead and gush, geeks!
