This reminds me of our house cat

When he is content he just lies down someplace comfortable and ignores everyone around as they are completely beneath him.

John Boehner Transformed Into a Cheat - ah

Boehner reminds me on a wild animal that has discovered its much easier to survive by looking for a free handout rather than to use its natural hunting skills for survival..

Humans can be quite in tune with wild animals

Here's a video of the "Cheetah Lady" interacting with wild Cheetahs. They're not "acclimated" to humans, rather it is the human who is acclimated to the animal. Absolutely fascinating!


Thanks for the post!

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Actually it's depressing

Great cats should never become as acclimated to humans as this cheetah obviously has. My suspicion is that this, by the looks of it's hesitancy to leap off the vehicle, is an older cat who has been fed by humans. While cats are notoriously untrustworthy humans are even less so.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Your suspicion is probably incorrect.

This cat does not behave like a cat expecting to be fed. Or looking for any kind of attention from humans. The cat was looking for a high vantage point, nothing more.

That Was My First Impression!

Not knowing a thing about cats or Cheetas..I did notice though, the big cat had his or her eyes looking over their heads, as if it was looking for some game to hunt or maybe just a temporary safe place to rest a bit before moving on...

SteveMT's picture

Those in Congress are even less trustworthy.

The Texas Congressman who has had the 'trust market' cornered for the last 30 years is in this last weeks of serving in that otherwise corrupt body known as the House of Representatives. If trust was a commodity, then Ron Paul would be the richest man on this planet. I hope that all are relishing these last days of his being in office as I have been for the end is at hand. That chamber will not be same without his Constitutional voice of sanity. The thought of a Congress without Ron Paul in it is difficult to imagine; actually watching these future proceedings will be extremely difficult.

Sorry about the rant. Your great comment just set me off.


The cat's "farewell address" to the tourists should be seen as analogous to Ron Paul's farewell address to Congress.

nice post that was amazing!
he used the vehicle to scout and was uninterested and not even concerned about anything else.

Well to be fair it was likely a zoo / nature reserve

yeah people have probably fed the animal....but people also have protected the animal. They likely have even supplied a steady stream of antelope for it to feed on.

Frankly those people should have been carrying a gun along with the camera. That Cheetah was wild and always will be wild. Even a "pet" Cheetah is dangerous. So, those people were smart not to panic but hopefully they had a gun just in case it leaped unexpectedly. While cute and seemingly relaxed, the cheetah had its ears down the whole time. The body language would have had me very wary and cautious.

But this was a cool video. Once in a lifetime event for sure!

couldnt agree more.

it looked like the cheetah wanted a higher vantage point, but it made me sick when they suggested to feed it chicken.

People have become such a liability to nature

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Humans ARE a part of nature


the propaganda that we are parasitic on the Earth has permeated the views of so many people.

What if you replace "people" with any other animal or vegetation.

for example....

Elephants have become such a liability to nature

Bats have become such a liability to nature

Bears have become such a liability to nature

See it's oxymoronic and so is your statement about people.

im a permaculturalists man of course I know that ..

my point was that in general people don't think like that and it is poisoning my water.

everybody is so emotional damn.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

You seem to be

You seem to be confused.

Elephants, Bats, Bears, and any other example you choose to give to do not willingly destroy their homes, waste food, pollute water, air, and earth as people do.

People are not necessarily 'parasitic' our culture is and it is destroying our home.

Sure they do

Bats can carry diseases that harm other animals and if you don't think Bears and Elephants have a damaging effect on the environment, put one in your back yard for a while. Report back what they destroy

Animals are not conversationalists no matter what you would like to believe. What food they don't eat they leave to rot. Some will kill a whole group...like wheezels for instance will kill a whole group of 25 chickens with no ability or intention of eating them all.

Do we have environmental responsibilities? Sure but we aren't as harmful as you have been taught. What you have to realize is that you have been taught that in order to further a different agenda that has nothing to do with saving the earth.

It's all about depopulation and then controlling the ones who are left. it is about modern day feudalism. And you are being manipulated.

"People have become such a liability to nature."

I profoundy disagree with your statement accusing, damning and claiming that, "PEOPLE have become such a LIABILITY to NATURE".

PEOPLE ARE NATURE. When you look at the adverage person, they consume very little and produce very little waste. Matter of fact, many people use their intelligence to be assets to nature, nurturing, patronizing, loving, worshipping even, people LOVE nature and nature LOVES people.. it's a symbiotic relationship and one that should be respected and protected.

I have a problem blaming people because that opens the mind to "holocasts". It's like George Carlin says, "The planet can take care of itself, maybe the planet wanted plastic.. we don't know the grand design.. you've got to save yourself, or as I found, asking Jesus to save me, forgive me, have mercy on me, and having the faith he would.

Ever since I was a kid, who had to clean up my room before I could go mess up something somewhere else, it bothered me tremendously to see the destruction left behind from war. I thought the military should begin cleaning up what mess they made.. even if they won. If I won playing 52 card pick up in my room, I still had to pick up whatever the loser neglected.

I've spent decades, since 1972 "saving the planet".. and I was far from alone. Where I am now I came here years ago thinking about how to live off the grid and live simply so others could simply live. Of course I know many people here that came for the same reason.. a movement started here in the early 70s..

As a granger, I've learned many animals are dependent on humans for their existance, and that goes for crops too.. like medical marijuana.. nothing really natural about that stuff, eh?

The UN Agenda 21: Sustainable Development is all about "saving the planet", and that's just a real bad way to think of people.. who are born into the technology of the time.. maybe it's our generation's cosmic job to clean up the messes from the "Spoils of the past", and perhaps technology will reward us in many ways we can not realize today."

And I do believe the planet has pole shifts and meteor collisions that drastically change the surface and eliminates life as we know it.. but that's no reason to not clean up what remains from past generations that did not think about building deconstruction into their construction plans when they went into their wars or built the mills and used toxins they didn't understand as well as we do today.

How many vans were there?

How many vans were there? South Africa is now a tourist trap.

Didn't the cat notice that the vans were full of Sheep?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

That's freakin awesome!

That's freakin awesome!

I'll see your cat and raise you one penguin.
