A most unlikely friendship has blossomed between two creatures that traditionally tend to be at odds with each other.
The Cheetah Experience is a big cat centre in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Opened in 2006, its aim is to breed cheetahs for release into a protected wild in order to sustain the species.
When rescue dog Chloe came to work with her owner one morning, no one could’ve expected what was to come – he kissed a cheetah!
During a morning walk, the 5-year-old Jack Russell came across a magnificent 14-month-old cheetah named Eden.
Instead of growling and trying to rip each other’s throats out, they became the best of friends!
Leaping up at Eden to bestow affectionate kisses upon her face, Chloe was enamoured with her new pal. And the mighty cheetah clearly felt the same, judging from the lack of dog meat in her teeth.
Even though they live in different areas of the park, the four-legged friends are reunited as soon as the cheetahs are let into the big camp.
Once the pleasantries are over, Chloe and Eden spend their days playing, nuzzling and cleaning each other.
So who says cats and dogs have to be enemies?
