I became obsessed with cheetahs.
It started when I was watching African Cats. It was a weekend night and Ben was working late. It was chilly outside (I think early December), so I got cozy with a blanket, some wine, and African Cats. I know, party is my middle name.
For those of you who haven't seen the movie, it's a documentary that follows a pride of lions (actually two prides), and a few cheetahs over in Africa. It sounds totally boring but it's really easy to get sucked in - especially after a couple glasses of wine.
Baby, I am drinking wine and watching the kitty movie!
Dude. This lion is a bad ass. They don't mess around.
Oh my gosh, the cheetah just had cubs - so adorable!
No really baby, I almost can't take the cuteness. Forget a kindle, I want a baby cheetah in my stocking for Christmas.
Ah! Baby cheetahs! I NEED ONE!
The mama cheetah is so regal!
The baby cheetahs are so cute! Seriously babe, we could TOTALLY have one in the apartment! And when the dog upstairs gets annoying the cheetah would take care of it!
I could go on (and that night I think I did), but you get the picture. Since then, my obsession has only grown.
I talk about cheetahs a lot. I will tell you why they are better than all the other cats (some are valid reasons, most I make up), and I have a picture of a baby cheetah as the background on my phone. When I recently went to the zoo, I got to the cheetah exhibit and grabbed my friend's arm whispering, "they're here! It's happening!" (I'm no Kristen Bell, but it was pretty awesome). Forget shark week - I want to see cheetah week!
I've since learned that two baby cheetahs were born at the National Zoo a few months ago and they will be making their first debut later this year. You better believe I'm all over it.
How do you feel about cheetahs? If it's a negative opinion, don't bother leaving a comment. Just kidding. (Sorta). Do you have a favorite animal, or any animal you're
