Busch Gardens' Baby Cheetah is So Cute We Literally May Have Died

We have to drop our cold, cynical Riptide front for a second, because Busch Gardens' new baby cheetah is literally one of the most adorable things we've ever seen. The 4-week-old, so-far nameless cheetah cub was born at Jacksonville Zoo, but his mother refused to feed him. So he was transferred to Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay to be raised by hand, and will eventually join the park's other cheetahs. He's like Florida's answer to Knut the polar bear (but hopefully with a happier ending). Video and pictures below.
