She may be only eight weeks old, but this purr-fectly adorable Persian leopard already has lots of love to give.

Born Oct. 25 at the Augsburg Zoo, the cub is simply telling us she is ready to embrace her public. On Sunday, she and her mother, Thea, were moved to the zoo’s Tigerhaus, which is now open to visitors.

Mom is just going to have to tell her kitten (who could grow to be a whopping 200 lbs.) that humans may not be quick to reciprocate!
