Tiger Cub and Tiger Kid Have Adorable Zoo Play Date

More on PawNation: Awesome, Cats, Cute, Newborns, Tigers, Zoo

With all of her furry playmates at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium occupied, Kalia the tiger cub turned her attention outside the glass. There she found a familiar-looking new friend: 2-year-old Marshall Shaffer, a little boy in a tiger suit. Seeing the stripes, Kalia instantly went into fierce fun mode, bounding after the boy with cuddly pounces from behind the glass. But the cub's energy is no match for Marshall's. After a few laps, Kalia takes a rest and watches the boy do the playing for the both of them.

Seen this video first on the weather channel now here. So adorable how the cub is playing with the child! :-) watching this not only made me and my husband smile and laugh but warmed our hearts. wish she had a real playmate though. That baby (the cub) seemed lonely. :'(

Yes, and when he catches one some day, he's going to eat him.
