Get ready for more adorable babies on display at the National Zoo. Born May 18, the fishing cat kittens are now a rambunctious three months old and on view for the first time. Visitors to the Asia Trail can find the youngsters fishing and climbing as they explore their new surroundings with mother, Electra. On view from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the kittens are most active in the morning, according to the Zoo. In the meantime, enjoy our up-close photo shoot from the Zoo’s Flickr page.
