Eden the cheetah proves she is just a big kitten as she lies down with her best human friend and licks her face.

A volunteer at a big cat centre in South Africa has formed an incredible bond with a docile cheetah.

Goska Zdziechowska describes Eden as “one of her best friends” after forming the special relationship with her at the Cheetah Experience in Bloemfontein.

Zdziechowska said: “She starts to purr when I get close to her and I try to spend as much time as possible with her.”

The clip above shows the pair lying down, cuddling and purring before Eden licks her pal’s face. Her behaviour is more like a house cat than big cat.

Eden is no stranger to media interest as she also hit the headlines after forming a unique friendship with a Jack Russell called Chloe.

    That is beautiful but I pray that this young lady remembers that her cat Eden is still a wild animal and should be treated as such.

  2. A cheetah is not a big cat, it is a lesser cat.
