This big cat likes water a whole lot more than your fuzzy feline at home!

An adorable Snow Leopard was captured on video by zoo staff enjoying the sun and warm weather, playfully splashing with a ball in her water bucket at the Los Angeles Zoo.

The animal has an adopted sibling at the zoo who was born within hours last may, so the two got to grow up playing together and are best of friends!

While this cub may have grown up quite a bit over the last year, it's obvious she still knows how to play like a newborn at heart!

The Snow Leopard is listed as "Vulnerable" on the IUCN Red List since the animals' global population is estimated at more than 2,500 but fewer than 10,000 mature individuals in the wild.
