Every cat lover knows the joy of settling in for a long snuggle session with their beloved kitten. There’s just something about hearing and feeling them purr with happiness that can’t compare to anything else, and before long you’re both snoozing with a smile.
Dolph Volker is a volunteer at Cheetah Experience Park, Bloemfontein, Free State, South Africa and he has done everything he could to gain the trust of the resident big cats. But it’s all been worth it because now he can do some pretty amazing things with them.
Eden is one of Dolph’s best cheetah friends.
They first met back in 2014 and have been getting to know each other ever since.
They’re so close that she even nibbles and grooms him like he’s just another cheetah.
Dolph is planning to take the next step, one he says is the ultimate form of trust between animals, to sleep inside their enclosure with them. Some people might think he’s bananas, but if this video is any indication, he should be just fine.
