A litter of three puma kittens was found in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

According to the Santa Cruz Puma Project the kittens were huddled together in a redwood tree stump.

This comes after four puma kittens were found in the area last week. 

The pumas have the same father, according to the Santa Cruz Puma Project.

The Santa Cruz Puma Project is tracking the kittens to learn more about puma reproduction, and how to best manage land for puma conservation," according to the group's Facebook page.
