Cape Town, South Africa

I love animals. So when the opportunity to pet one of the fastest land animals on earth came

my way, I took it. We walked into the enclosure where several baby cheetahs were waiting for us, still groggy

from their nap. Their mother looked on calmly but attentively from the other side of the pen.

And even though I’m allergic to cats, this time I didn’t even care.

I think you can see why. 🙂
