Wild Cats: March 2008 Archives

Imagine a 400lb Lion hugging you!? It turns out that the King of the Jungle is just a really, really big kitten.

This woman rescues big cats in Colombia. The lion was abused, injured and malnourished. She took him in and cared for him until he was healthy – the two developed a close bond. He loves her. He really loves her. You’ll see in the video that he recognizes her right away and so excited that she’s there. He jumps up and wraps his paws around her neck and kisses her! He is actually hugging her. He acts more affectionate than some domestic cats out there! You’ve just got to see the love!

Here is another video of the same lion and the same woman – she has several big cats in her care.

I was in Vegas a couple of years ago and I bought a plush toy replica of a Snow Leopard for my daughter. Little did I know that all we may have left of these majestic animals will be plush toys.

Today 12 nations (Afghanistan, India, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan, China, Bhutan, and Uzbekistan) have come together to try and find a way to save these rare and beautiful animals.

According to most reports, the greatest threat to Snow Leopards are poaching, loss of habitat and increased conflict with humans over livestock. Depending on who you talk to, there may be as little as 3500 of these cats left in the world.

I've made a slideshow of the snow leopard, visit my pictures of cats page and select the snow leopard gallery.

You can make a difference by donating to the Snow Leopard Trust.

The video below was filmed by the BBC and is apparently the first video ever shot of this cat in the wild. Check out the size of the tail on this cat. Incredible.
