Cheetahs are fast, yes, but what else? It appears that they’re keen hide-and-seekers, too, since this lean wild cat is seen sticking its head into the ground. Maybe it’s just trying to avoid the current discourse, or maybe it’s after something in particular, but for one reason or another, it’s buried its entire head into the dirt.
Looking for food? Saying hello to the neighbors? Maybe this is a way to stretch out those long legs before bursting into an eye-popping sprint to chase down Gazelles. One way or another, it reminds us of an inquisitive house cat who is hunting through boxes or bags to find something to play with. Or, most likely, something to eat.
Get Lucky, See Funny
Most cats have a pretty standard face. You know – the cat face. It... It looks like a cat. You know the one. However, if you’re quick with a camera at certain moments, you might just be able to take a picture of a cat’s face that looks like something a little different.
Like if you managed to get a pic of this caracal, who is either in the middle of a big yawn or just had a handful of sneezing powder blown into its face. We couldn’t tell you much about what a caracal actually looks like, but we bet it doesn’t usually look like this. Keep a sharp eye on the cat that is lying around your house, and you might be able to get a face similar to this one.
A lot of cats can’t get enough cuddles, especially if you have food or it’s near their dinner time. While it’s usually a pretty bad idea to try and get cuddles from a cat like this one, it looks like it can, at least, be done. However, you’d have to put in the time raising a dying lioness from a cub up to a happy, healthy adult.
The man who has the time and effort to spare in this picture is named Valentin Gruener, who is such an absolute chad that he not only raised this lioness from a cub (and she’s very grateful, obviously), but he also can just sit in the water with her on his shoulders. Well, if you’re a cat person, you’re a cat person. It’s a look of pure relaxation.
Just the Cutest
Cats are plenty cute, but what about little cats that will, one day, grow up to be much bigger cats? Well, it turns out that they can tip the cute meter, too. This white lion, no doubt one of the few in the world, can be found in the city of Yalta, in Crimea.
We bet that he or she is one of the biggest draws to the zoo in that city. We’re not sure if the lion suffers from albinism – the eyes do look a touch red – or if it’s some other lion thing that makes the fur fully white, but one way or the other this little guy or gal has quite the cute future.
They Don’t Mind That Much
There’s a reason that people keep spray bottles full of water on the counter where they don’t want the cats to go. They really seem to hate getting sprayed with water. They also hate baths, and being out in the rain. Most of them, anyway – wild cats have a much easier time dealing with the wet stuff.
This cat (a quick check revealed it's a wild cat species called a serval) seems to be done with a bath and is drying off with a few sharp shakes of the body. Maybe it’s playing in the water, too. We imagine a whole lot of time that predators spend is taken up doing things to stave off boredom. That and hunting and sleeping, of course.
