Cheetah Encounter

Here is a video clip of my encounter last Thursday with Masai, a full-grown male cheetah, at Lion Park in South Africa. Listen to his purr! He started to lick my hand and it felt like sandpaper; the manager warned me not to let him lick it for too long, as he would take the skin right off my hand!

That is a gorgeous cheetah. You're so lucky!

That's one of my favorite sounds for sure. What a blessing to have a chance to pet that cutie! How did he go for the tummy rub?
