Awwwww. Kitty, kit*CHOMP*

*will not let my cats see this*

Felines. Wo, wo, wo, felines...

Maybe Seigfried (or was it Roy) needs to do an educational video.

This is your head.

This is your head in a 400 pound predatory feline's mouth.

Any questions?

In one of those pictures, you could clearly see the love in their eyes as they were tasting him.

*groan* @ Stevie

Animal behaviourist Kevin Richardson has such an intimate bond with big cats that he can spend the night curled up with them without the slightest fear of attack.

"A man and his puss*es..." agnfa p0rn documentary??

that grizzly bear man had a way with bears right before they killed him.

'e's a goner.

What the hell are domestic moggies? Can you say that in proper circles?

I think he's lion.

snork at Siouxie!

domestic moggies = common house cat.

Is that catnip in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Meowrrrr....

He reminds me of Timothy Tredwell aka the Bear Man also.

BTW it is a great movie.

Domestic moggies are mixed breed housecats - but only in England. We just call them mixed breed housecats. Or I do. Another reason why I have to get to England someday.

Male lions spend about 20 hours a day sleeping. Females hunt, cook, clean, knit...


The other 4 hrs are spent chasing the poor tired fems...

i tawt i thaw a puddy tat!

OK. I just have to say I love that first picture. How totally, incredibly awesome. They have apparently learned him as much as he learned them.

As for Siegfried and Roy, well, I'm somehow tempted to believe the story Roy told in the days after the accident in which he spoke of believing the animal was trying to save him from a stroke.

DD - by chomping down on his jugular????


"Five-year-old females Meg and Amy see Kevin as one of their own".

Their own what? Look at that 2nd picture. The lioness in the background has a certain look in her eye as she is licking her chops.

Leave me alone, I'm watching my soaps. Besides, you know I think everyone's lion.

*snork* @ Siouxie!

This guy needs to get out more. Or change his meds.

Mr. Richardson, your insurance company is holding on lion line 2.

Conversation at my uncle Chuck's house, circa 1968:

Uncle Chuck: Tony, lyin' is bad!

Tony, age 6: Yeah, Dad. Tiger is bad, too.

Uncle Chuck: *walks away, desperately trying not to laugh*


Conversation at my cousin Dave's house circa 2000:

Dave: Danny, are you lyin'?

Danny, age 4: *thinks a second*

Danny: ROWR!!!!

Dave: *walks away swiftly, covering his face*


Some things just never change.

Cuddles and love bites are all part of 'play' fighting.

I'd normally agree with that statement except for the part where it's the lion's sharp teeth doing the "love bites".

Someday this guy will regret walking out on the last 10 minutes of "Grizzly Man."

He's Keith Richards' son? No wonder he acts kinda wild.....

Siouxie - I think that was an accident. I don't think the tiger meant to grab him in such a vulnerable location. Maybe I'm wrong. I just think that they knew their animals better than anyone. They certainly have treated them better, though I disagree with putting them in shows like that no matter how well they are treated.

Should we just pencil this guy in for a Darwin Award right now and be done with it?

His last words will be-
"Hey, Simba, pull my finger."

I wouldn't trust Meg or Amy . . . whichever one is licking her chops as she stares at his butt.

Hot guy though. Why do all the good ones have to get eaten by lions?

I dunno, Diva. I love animals - but these wild types are very unpredictable no matter how much you know them and they know you. I would love to think the beast was trying to save his life but he'd probably never admit it wasn't. I'll stick to the domestic beasts - men and dogs ;-P

and a *snork* @ Annie's finger!

Born freak, as freaky as guys go,
As freaky as I know
Born freak, just follow your heart....
...with your liver, kidneys, and other assorted organs.

*snork* @ Boo Augustus.

May I recommend a nice chianti with your human, Ms. Amy?

Oh I just can't wait.....to be lunch.


Carrrrrrrrrne asada!!!!

there's got to be a far side cartoon in this somewhere.

Kevin Richardson...the other white meat.

Animal behaviourists...they're grrreeeaaaatttt!!!

The Far Side

Major Snork @ Amy

Funny, he doesn't LOOK chewish.

Mama Lion: Come on now, eat your comedian.
Son: But Mama, it tastes funny.


A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A-wimoweh, a wimoweh
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh

In the jungle
The mighty jungle
The lion eats tonight
In the jungle
The quiet jungle
The lion eats tonight


This would be a good time to point out the difference between "tame" and "domestic". Lions and other big cats may be tamed, but they are still wild. They still have an instinct to hunt and kill.

Most Dogs and housecats are domesticated. The instinct to kill (humans at least) has been bred out over many generations.

This would be a good time to point out the difference between "imported" and "domestic".

Well, shoot, ANYTIME would be a good time to point that out. Oh, waiter!

Yes, imported is good. Most of McDonald's beef is imported...

pogo - you had a typo there. It's all about the beeR.

This is also a good time to point out that the singer of Siouxie's bastardized song died this week.

*cue eerie music*

*schnork* to aw's "Funny, he doesn't LOOK chewish."

I didn't know lions kept kosher.

Amy - yes he did. And he tasted like Chick Corea.


Annie - I'll bet!!

Humph! We feel left out.

"Richardson, 32, who is based in a wildlife conservation area near Johannesburg in South Africa, works his unusual magic on other species too."

Last known photo of Richardson working his magic.

Annie - McD's in Italy serves beer, but they call it bira, and it's domestic.

I had wine in a Mickey D's in Choisy-le-Roi outside of Paris.

Thank you Wicked and Kathy! I would have never guessed a common housecat in a million years!

birra, actually. ;o)

I thought birra was goat.

Musical FYI - The first time I heard A-wemoweh, the Kingston Trio did it. (Geezer memory) and also Ladysmith does it.

Thanks J&B, I stand corrected. (Obviously I have been there but I don't know the language)

SW - you're right, in another language. Spanish I think? They had to call beer "cerveza" because birra was taken?


goat = cabra (en español)

(apologies to Millie Small)

My boy lion poop
I'll pick you up like Alley-Oop
You are my tasty munchkin
I'm having you for lunchkin
Whoa oh my boy lion poop
You are my sweetest favorite
Animal behaviourist
One bite told me so

SW - Go here. Birra = beer in Italian.
