Zoo workers have to hand feed these adorable tiger cubs and you're going to have serious job envy

Three white tiger cubs were recently born at a zoo in Crimea, and discovering just how tiny they are is cute enough in itself.

Then you see the male cubs being hand fed and cared for by zoo workers and it takes cute, well, to a whole new level.

The mother of Athos, Aramis and Porthos – yep, they’re named after The Three Musketeers – has been refusing to feed her cubs. Which is why the task has fallen to workers at the zoo in Yalta.

Well, the cubs seem quite content with their baby bottles, don’t they?

And we’d just like to point out how much we enjoyed seeing one of the zoo workers cuddling them up into their little bed together. Yes, we can and will say it again – *so* cute.
