Animal lover Annel Snyman and her pet cat Timba exemplify the incredible bond that can grow between man and beast.

But Timba is no ordinary house cat. He's a hulking house lion that can polish of 9lbs of raw meat a day and could bite off her head any time he liked.

But Timba is really a big softie, and loves nothing more than to cuddle up to Annel on the sofa of their home in the Waterburg region of South Africa.

This woman is going to die a horrible death the day this lion decides that it's time for his comeuppance in the pride.

Oh he is beautiful and what cat lover wouldn't want to snuggle up to him!!  But yeah, bad idea really.  Lions aren't pets, even when hand reared.  I have a scar on my cheek from my pet kittie when I was a kid and she was ill and scratched me, can only imagine the damage a fully grown lion would do if it lashed out!  I hope it all has a wonderful ending but sadly I don't think it will.

I really really hope that is true, he is a beautiful animal.  Unfortunately such powerful animals can cause serious injury without even meaning to.

^This, he may well claw her badly or chew through an artery just being "playful", not a good idea at all no matter how loving he may be 99% of the time.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I look at my cat and he has the same eyes. Until it's dinner time and I take a second too long to feed him. Then my ankle will get a clipping. :D
