The two-month-old kittens were also dewormed and chipped at the appointment while photographer Vladimír Čech captured the milestone moment.

The 30-year-old said: “The two girls didn’t really like the doctor but the course of the event was fortunately smooth, fast and trouble-free.

“Sumatran tigers are very rare and the cubs were so cute but the process was very quick so I didn’t have time for much emotion.

“This particular zoo has had a birth boom this year with cats both big and small.
