Taming the Cheetah

Yeah, I petted a Cheetah, Elaine did too. Yes, we tamed the cheetah. It cooed for me (you know how I am with cats, my own run from me) and purred for both of us. I almost had it talking ..... the way my cats do. They call people over to tell secrets and ask whole groups at a time if they are fat. This cheetah was just about to engage in a conversation with me alone. You can see it in the pictures, it is looking over its shoulder at me, just about to tell me something loving. I had it in the palm of my hands, she was putty. I was the cheetah tamer. And just as she was about to say that loving something to me, the Cheetah Land employee told me my time was up. You only get so long for your 150 rand, but you do get your very own 8X10 photo as a souvenir all included. Yes I paid money to touch a cheetah. So did Elaine. At Cheetah Land. And we had fun.

This is awesome!
Several years ago this woman found a sick, malnourished lion cub in the jungle. She took the cub home and fed him and brought him up until he was too big to keep anymore. She made arrangements with a zoo in Colombia to take the lion.

This is the video of what happened when she went to visit him in the zoo for the first time.
