It's the Tuesday after Labor Day—and the beginning of a workweek after three glorious days off. Summer is over. The weather is humid and disgusting. What we're getting at here is that today is kind of crummy, but lucky for you, we have just the thing to make it better: heartwarming stories (and photos!) of cute sea-lion pups, all of whom are now at New York City zoos.


The five California sea lions got to the zoos in different ways: Two were rescued off the coast of California, and after a rehabilitation period were brought to the Prospect Park Zoo; two others were transferred from Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife to the Queens Zoo. And a female sea-lion pup was born at the Bronx Zoo in June—the unnamed cutie makes her debut with her mother, Indy, this month.


Awww. There, don't you feel better now?
