Meet the newest members of Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary in Cornwall, England ... if you can spot them.

These two tiny felines are rusty-spotted cats, the world's smallest cat breed. The rusty-spotted cat grows to be just 35 cm - 48 cm in length, reports The Independent.

"We had an enclosure spare last summer and were given the opportunity to take on a pair of rusty-spotted cats. To our knowledge they are 2 of only around 40 in captivity across the world, so we were excited about the opportunity. We've been waiting for the right moment to reveal that they have had 2 cubs!" the park shared in on Facebook.

According to Porfell, the little cubs are currently eight weeks old and are "starting to explore their surroundings with mum."

"She has done a fabulous job at raising them and continues to be very protective of them so we are unsure of their gender," the park added. "We are over the moon with the new babies as the majority of our animals are old and here for retirement."

The birth of these two little superstars was part of the Rusty Spotted Cat Conservation Breeding Programme — a program started to protect the endangered species, which is native to India and Sri Lanka.

Porfell is excited to help protect this precious species and offer some "positive news" amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
