What's an even better way to prepare for the changing of the seasons than pumpkin spice latte?

How about video of two little girls playing around in a leaf pile? Not good enough? Consider this:

Two little girls playing around in a leaf pile... with a baby deer!

That's exactly what the following footage depicts and it's just as adorable as you might imagine. Let's just hope the kids' parents checked them for ticks afterward and let's just sit back and get ready for the fall with the help of this unexpected play date:

The only thing missing from this cute video?

Butch, the Siberian Husky who loves to play with leaves more than we love anything in the entire world. Perhaps the girls and the fawn can invite him along next time.

Consider yourselves warned, THG readers:

The following photo gallery and subsequent video may cause an end to all productivity for you today.

That’s because they feature two female cheetahs who were born on September 1 at the San Diego Zoo, with that famous establishment announcing the news on Facebook and noting that each birth is "precious" because there are only 12,000 cheetahs left in the world.

These three-week olds are being hand-raised by the animal care staff because their mother couldn't raise her previous litter properly. They only weigh three pounds each at the moment.

But that isn't stopping the sisters from playing with each other and making us squeal in delight.

Cheetahs at Play
These two cheetahs were just born at the San Diego Zoo. We could watch this GIF all day long, couldn't you?

"Every baby's different, but these cheetahs really seem to be developing quickly in our eyes," says Eileen Neff, lead keeper of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. "They are great eaters, they started playing when they were just three or four days old. They could barely walk at that time, so it was pretty interesting seeing them tumbling around with each other."

Say hello to Joplin.

This donkey was sick as a baby and, therefore, was raised indoors by Missouri natives Dawn and Chris Wegener.

Joplin grew very accustomed to the arrangement and has lived as a regular member of the family ever since, watching television at times, helping with chores and other times and, based on the adorable photos below, often irritating the dog as well.

Joplin can open doors all by himself; enjoys eating apples as a snack in the kitchen; and has learned enough by now to ignore Dr. Phil.

Don't believe us? Check out these pictures for proof!

Admiring Other Animals
What's the big deal? Nothing to see here! It's just a donkey living inside and watching some television.

Pretty amazing, huh?

Okay, maybe this is the coolest wedding photo of all-time.

We previously gave that honor to this wave-crashing image. And we also considered it for this amazing look at a bride and groom posing in front of a tornado.

But now a photo of Erick and Lauren Fix on their big day has been posted to Reddit, and it features the newlyweds standing in front of a herd of adorable, slightly frightened deer.

Deer Photobomb Wedding Picture

Fix tells ABC that the nuptials took place on the farm of a family friend, a locale that often has a herd of wild deer roaming all about.

Forgive (or embrace) the obvious pun, but... HOO says a cat and an owl can't be close friends?

Not Forbi, the feline in the following video, who is doing all she can to get the attention of an owl named Cleo.

The unlikely pals, whose footage has been shared more than 100,000 times on Facebook, are owned by Brazilian biologist Andre Costa.

They met at a young age and have been inseparable ever since, even if you wouldn't totally know it based on Cleo's reaction below. Come on, Cleo, give Forbi some love!

As unexpected as this friendship may seem, there are other examples of even more unexpected animal bondings.

Like this lion, this tiger and this bear. Or this cheetah and this dog. How adorable, right?!?

Who says bears are so different from humans?

These animals may seem scary, but they get excited when they reach the green in golf, same as anyone else. They also like to Twerk.

And as a heat wave hits Southern California, with temperatures soaring into the triple digits, they look to cool off in the same way as their two-legged frenemies:

By taking a quick dip in the pool!

Watch this black bear chill out on the property of a home in Sierra Madre Sunday afternoon. Someone get that guy a drink with an umbrella in it!

Pool owners in the area should take note: It's not expected to get any cooler in The Golden State over the next few days.

While Kanye West played concerts and yelled at people in wheelchairs to stand up this weekend, his wife played tourist in Australia.

Much to the chagrin of one very unhappy koala.

Indeed, Kim Kardashian took daughter North West to the zoo this morning, enjoying a few hours on the Sunshine Coast at a facility founded by the late animal conservationist Steve Irwin.

"Thank you @AustraliaZoo for having us today. So many good memories #AustraliaZoo," Kardashian wrote on Instagram soon after leaving, captioning a photo of herself and a resident who looked anxious to be put down by the reality star.

Kim Kardashian and Koala

According to Us Weekly sources, the famous family was given a private tour of the zoo, with Kim getting up close and personal with some cheetahs, birds and crocodiles.

Excuse this baby bear... but may he play through?

In an awesomely hilarious video captured by YouTube user/golfer Andi Dzilums, play for her and her group is interrupted when a four-legged creature makes his way on to the green.

Enamored by the flag stick in the hole, the bear plays around with it, sort of doing his own version of a pole dance, clearly having the time of his life.

And before departing, the adorable little guy finds another treat to take with him: a golf ball! All mine!

Draven Rodriguez, a senior at Schenectady High School in upstate New York, doesn't ask for much in life.

But he's had one simple dream since last year: he wants his yearbook photo to be the following professional picture, snapped of him and his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, along with a handful of lasers. 

"I'm not trying to make any statement," Rodriguez told The Daily Gazette. “Other than my photo is ridiculous and this is how I am."

A Kid and His Cat

Anticipating a negative response from the administration, Rodriguez preemptively started an online petition to allow for the image's inclusion in the upcoming edition of the yearbook.

No offense, pandas. You can be ridiculously adorable.

But a rare pygmy hippo was recently born in Sweden’s Parken Zoo and she may truly be the cutest animal to ever walk the face of the Earth.

Her name is Olivia, she weighed in at only 13 pounds at birth and she’s been dubbed the Michelin Man because, well, just look at her:

Pygmy hippos, which typically grow to about half the size of a regular hippopotamus, are an endangered species that are native to West Africa.
