These baby cheetahs are unreasonably cute. They also seem to be posing for the cameras, eerily aware of how desperately a heartsick observer would want to use their fuzzy little heads as giant makeup powder puffs.

As if they weren’t super-charming enough already, Winspear and Kamau, the Dallas Zoo’s two newest cheetah cubs, recently acquired a cross-species friend — Amani, a Labrador puppy whose purpose, according to a statement from the zoo, will be to chill the cheetah cubs the fuck out:

Zoological experts have found that because dogs are naturally comfortable in public settings, Amani will provide a calming influence for the cubs, as well as another playmate as they grow to adulthood.

AHHHHHH!!!!! Surely, nothing bad can come of this.
