Cute Alert: Lion Has Two Daddies

This isn't footage of Siegfried and Roy, nor is this made by Disney (as far as I can tell). It's footage of a lion who was raised as a cub by these two dudes and then was returned into the wild where he socialized with his pride and got on with life. Then his caretakers returned to visit. There is no sound to this, strangely, and it needs no soundtrack. The look of recognition on the lion's face shows his disbelief, then joy, and gratitude. (Man, call me corny, but I teared up at this one. And thanks for the cute title, Flippy!)

awww controlledspin, my dad does the same thing if he finds a stray dog that has gotten hit by a car or something like that he also pays for his vet care and then finds a good family for them, this kitty loving reminds me of that, its adorable.

Okay, I am crying now too! My Mom rehabilitates animals (voluntarily in her own time, money, effort) and re-releases them to the wild, and it's so sweet to see an animal remember the love and care it received!!!

I think so, ladychaos. That's why the other one trusts the humans. Still, those are some big cats! :meow:
