Sleepy Cheetah Mom Tries To Relax, But 3 Cubs Won’t Stop Climbing All Over Her

It’s a feeling many human moms know all too well — you’re ready for a bit of relaxation after a long, grueling day of running a household and working. Unfortunately, your kids have other ideas in mind, preferring to demand your attention and sneak in a bit of playtime.

But with parenthood comes patience — and that’s exactly what one cheetah mom demonstrated perfectly in a recent adorable video.

In a clip captured by animal lover Janice Wei during a trip to Tanzania, Africa in June 2017, a cheetah mom is sprawled out in the grass. It is clear that the cheetah is attempting to relax as she stretches out there. She is surrounded by 4 of her tiny, adorable cubs.

Unfortunately for this sleepy mom, most of her cubs are not tired in the least. As she lies there, several of the cubs hop all over her. It seems obvious that they are trying to get her attention!

For a portion of the video, 3 of the cubs roll around and play together away from their mom, while one well-mannered and sleepy cub lays on mom gently. But for most of the clip, the 3 rambunctious cubs climb all over mom’s head and body — even pushing her head and nuzzling her ears!
