The Lion Tamer

Does this guy have the best job in the world or what?



And a tip o' my hat to A Rose Is A Rose at ravings of a semi-sane madwoman where I first saw this video (together with the Cuteness Overload Kitty on Monday)! She always posts interesting stuff, so be sure to go check out her blog!

I'm playing blog catchup and LOVE all these posts I was missing. The cubs, the kitties, the license plate! All too cool.

Large cats have always fascinated me because their actions mirror our domestic furry friends so exactly. .only in super-size!

And I've always wanted to hold and cuddle a wild cub. .I'm so envious that this guy has so much interaction with not only the cubs, but the Mom too. it is amazing how much she trusts him with her babies. That says a lot for both of them!

Thanks so much for sharing this with us. .it started my day off with a smile and a big "awwwwwww".

Wishing you a great day too!

~can you even imagine...to be in the presence of such a large animal and in turn have it be ever so gently and loving with you...when the little one yawned...oh how cute was that...i may just have to agree that he has one hell of job or life shall we say!!! warm wishes and brightest blessings~

Oh, wow. I want to be that guy.

I would give anything to be able to interact with a wild cat! I did get to hold a Liger cub, (lion/tiger cross) at the Reno Zoo once...that was pretty spectacular...:)

I don't think I'd care for his job, but it is quite interesting.
