It’s International Tiger Day, and some very special Internet stars are here to meow all about it.
In the clip, the kitties explain (with a little help from captions) that while tigers are the largest felines in the world, their numbers are rapidly declining. There are only 3,000 tigers left on Earth today, a depressing figure these cats hope to change.
So put on your finest orange and black stripes, watch this cute – yet serious – clip, and learn how every animal lover can help save the tigers.
