Poor wild creature incarcerated in that way. I suspect a lion type Siegfried and Roy incident is on the cards any day soon when that cat just decides enough is enough already!

Nothing special. I wash and trim my own cat that way. When it has enough it lets me know with a quick hard bite to my hand.

fortunately it can't fit my head in its mouth

Saw a programme about Sumatran tigers in an Australian zoo the other night and they love water and are very good swimmers. One of the blokes was swimming with a young tiger hitching a ride on his back.

I don't keep cats any more because my dog tends to want to eat them but I have a great regard for the feline species and realised long ago, even as I was opening that tin of cat food that if only I was smaller or the cat was bigger I would make a fine dinner too!

Remember the old saying "dogs have owners, cats have staff"

Anthropomorphic slush perhaps but you know we are all living creatures on this planet...

That is a great story, always liked it since it was first on TV.

I certainly have no desire to add "lion-washer" to my CV - but it would make an interesting addition to anyones CV. :)

Nice video which simply shows that a bond can be formed between a cat and a man.

It's a much more complex bond than the smarmy thing a dog does.

That lion likes that guy! :)

Thanks for posting that Caco.

Really great stuff and a beautiful creature, quite moving.

I was sure 500N would post a copy of the leopard pic with a set of crosshairs drawn right between the leopards eyes!! KAPOW!!

Beautiful-looking creatures - but exceptionally nasty and aggressive animals, too. Leopards have no fear of humans.

No, I was going to post a photo of someone holding up a huge Leopard and I mean huge.
