A Snack Or A Playmate...!
It's been a while since we've had a true "feel good" story on here.
I figured that today, if you don't mind, I'd put one on here...complete with pictures.
We all need a touch of something like this from time to time, and I'm no different! This is really more for me than anything else, because I was starting to get a little down on things in general.
You know how it is. Every so often, we just seem to hit a wall and start getting a little disappointed in things in general. I was getting that way, and this is an attempt to head that off at the pass, if you know what I mean!
Any way, I hope you enjoy this!
Photographer Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing pictures on safari in Kenya 's Masai Mara in October last year, said he was astounded by what he saw:
"These three cheetah brothers have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old,' he said. 'On the morning we saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking quickly but stopping sometimes to play together. 'At one point, they met a group of impala who ran away. But one youngster was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily'".
These extraordinary scenes followed.
This was the lucky day for the youngster. Instead of becoming dinner, he just made three new friends! We all need a day like this, where we go from being a small snack...to being a new friend ! Don't you think?
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside before it gets too hot!
