    This is young Jonas, the tiger actor from the Ang Lee movie Life Of Pi. The zoo handlers would take turns bringing the six month old tiger home to get used to humans icon_cool.gif

    Just beautiful !!
    As an animal lover , i am really keen to watch video like those which shows a wild animal leaving as a domesticated one .
    Zoos are a awful place to be for any kind of wild animal , they belong in they natural habitat !!
    At least Jonas has a loving family and is treated as any dogs or cats would in a regular household .icon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

    I know, that is what is so cool about interacting with a tiger cub. But even domesticated cats and dogs have their 'wild animal' style. When mistreated, cats and dogs will attack their humans, we have seen this time and again.

    As a cat person myself, they have incredible independent personalities. However they like to play, you never crowd or smother a cat. A dog on the other hand, requires much attention from its human

    I think people who pick their pets, pick them based on their own personality traits. Like I am an extremely independent person (Fire sign Sagittarius), therefore a cat, also extremely independent (Fire sign Leo) is a good match, pet to human, human to pet. We understand the independent requirement. (the same with Horses)



    These are pretty scary, domestic cats, with claws, can hurt you. I am sure a pissed off Tiger, no matter the age, has the same temperament as their smaller cousins when provoked. Cats demand respect.

    I hung out with a tiger at a strip club once.

    I was having a smoke with some guy, and he randomly blurted out i would never guess what was in his truck.....turns out he had a fucking tiger in his van. He was an exotic animal handler and his tiger, that he rented out to do various movies and also work with his exotic dancer girlfriend. At that point, i begged, harassed, begged and pleaded for him to let me see his tiger. He said fine, and brought it out into the hallway of the strip club, like this long empty noiseless hallway before you enter the actual club, and i got to pet it. It wasn't long before there was a giant line of people wanting to pet the tiger....i went first, as it was my idea to get him to bring it out...


    I sat down beside the thing, it was laying down, and began to pet it. Its breathing was very deep and when it exhaled it sounding like a fucking beast. I pet it like a cat for a few seconds, then its shoulders and then i (being drunk and also having little fear of anything at that point in my 20 year old life) began to fuck around with its teeth. I massaged outside its gums (its mouth was closed) cause i wanted to feel its teeth. I could clearly feel them through its skin.

    At that point, it started to growl a little, i kept doing it and the thing just layed there growling at me lightly. The handler told me to move along, which i did....

    The next person, sat down to pet it but didn't even get to bend at their knees before the Tiger lept up at the person and took a swipe at them. The handler had to pull on his "leash" a massive chain and that was it. "show's over" There was at that time, like a line of 20 people wanting to pet the damn thing and i ruined it for all of them.


    I didn't care though. The Tiger was only out cause i harassed the guy until he brought it out. And i got to pet a damn 350lb tiger while it growled at me, when i was drunk and high at a strip club. I still totally and vividly remember the experience of feeling the outline of its teeth and it growling. It was a weird sense of "this thing could rip my head off if it wanted to" but at the same time just knowing it probably wouldn't.

    I can tell you, getting ready to go to the bar and strip club that evening, at no point did it cross my mind i would be running into a fucking tiger. You, have no idea, what it is like to be high and unexpectedly find yourself petting a tiger.

    I just adopted a kitty and I can't stand cats! They're cute and quiet but I get tired of litter boxes and being poked and scratched. Tomorrow I get to trim nails for the first time. Looking forward to it icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif

    Is this tiger declawed or something? All I have to do is rub my cat the wrong way and she can draw blood. She also does not like it when you touch her belly or feet. One touch with a finger and she wacks you. This would be much worse with a big cat.

    I grew up with 2 dogs , a cat and a kangaroo that my mother had nursed after her mother was killed by a car . He was trained like a dog would be , he was housebroken , he sometimes would sleep inside with the dogs all 3 sharing their beds ..My mother ( as i am ) had OCD , when it came to cleanliness , and her house was always spotless , it was the proof than a wild animal can be trained to be clean .
    He used to ride with the dogs on a back of our Land Cruiser , he also was part of our boat rides ..
    WE had the happiness to have him with us for 14 years ,before he passed from kidneys failure ...
