A video taken at the Rowan County Zoo in North Carolina shows a lion pawing at the plexiglass divider between him and some gawking visitors, including an adorable 14-month-old girl.
As the adults in the room sang "Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur," the lion excitedly tried to make friends with the baby as they both pawed the glass.
Of course, we're just assuming they were trying to be friends. And thankfully (spoiler alert) it all turned out okay in the end.
Animals and babies is the perfect daily dose of morale, and this vid's got it all, so fire it up and enjoy the cross-species bonding between predator, prey, and plexiglass.
