The Oakland Zoo has a few more little cuties to show off.

These two female mountain lion cubs were rescued after the worst fire season in California history.

The two cubs lost their mother in the so-called Zogg fire that burned some 56,000 acres earlier this month.

They are receiving treatment and care from the zoo and from the looks of it, they seem to be doing much better.

The zoo says they plan to introduce these two cubs to Captain Cal, a male cub who was also orphaned in the Zogg fire.
