That has to be a fantastic experience. Amazing that a big cat with wild instincts can be so gentle.

It was probably drugged. It was a rehabilitation center. She has loads of pics with all different types of wildlife......she loved it.

"Smile" probably isn't quite the right word, but it is one tiny piece of justice.

The Kaibiles, U.S. trained assassins who participated in the killing of hundreds of thousands of Guatemalans. I know someone whose whole family was massacred, leaving only her.

Not necessarily.

I went to a cheetah rehab place in Namibia and got close to cuddle a cheetah that had been raised as a 'pet' and had been bought to the centre so it could have acres of land to live.

I posted the video of me stroking him and everyone insisted he was drugged as though they knew for sure but the cheetah hadnt, he had been hand raised and I emphasise was still a wild animal but hand raised wild animals can and do react differently to humans, just as quickly as some of them can attack.

In Namibia there is a place that has a hand raised baboon called Elvis that eats with the family and even has his own cup for his milk - he isnt drugged at all.

You could be right....this place is also in Namibia. Although, part of her job did require her to administer drugs.

The thought that, in a little over 3 hours, I shall be rid of the auditors who've been camped out here for the past three weeks, for another year.

That's definitely something to be happy about. Nobody likes auditors, not even their own mothers.
