Everyone, meet Santos. He’s an 11-week-old ocelot kitten who lives at the Cincinnati Zoo. He’s been living in the zoo’s nursery because his mother couldn’t produce enough milk to feed him. There, he befriended Blakely, a dog who lives in the nursery and serves as a companion animal to the baby animals. The pair became best friends, playing together nearly every day.

Watch here as they enjoy one final playtime session before Santos heads to the zoo’s Cat Ambassador Program. That is, if you’re prepared to handle some extreme, hardcore, squee-inducing cuteness.
