Somewhere a mouse just had a heart attack . . .

She looks a *little* scared... :)

This is either one of those giant stuffed toys that you could win at the carnivals of my childhood or your resume includes Olympic champion sprinter!

I want one!

Marginally related: When I visited the Safari Park (formerly Wild Animal Park) in San Diego, I learned they've started a program pairing baby cheetahs with puppies. They grow up together and it makes the cheetahs less skittish around humans and easier to handle for educational outreach, because the cheetahs can look to the dog, see it's not scared, and calm down. It was one of the cutest things I've seen.

What a beautiful cheetah. They really are extraordinary animals.

I hope the zoologists forgive me, but it seems Suzie has a "tiger by the tail." Cheetahs ARE the fastest land mammals, right?

And what do you call a cheetah-kitty? "Spot" seems more of a dog's name and "Fluffy" seems inappropriate.

I'll take "Places I'd rather not be" for $400, Alex.

And now for something completely different -- Today's A Softer World made me think Publishing Interns and that it might amuse you.

Suzie looks adorable, and the kitty? LOVE!!!

What a gorgeous, magnificent animal. (The shy but steadfast agent, rarely captured on camera.)

I like the cheetah a lot, too.

Laura said...

The look on her face is priceless!

Maybe it's just the cynic in my talking, but I wonder if this is all part of some circuitous plot to one day say, "My cat ate your manuscript."

Gorgeous!

This is the kind of cat my hubby would like to have. I told him they don't make litter boxes that big.

Steve Stubbs said...

I am simultaneously afraid to ask and feel compelled to ask: what does she feed it?

I am advised they only eat warm meat.

One of my friends is a huge cheetah nut. She'd probably squeal like a fangirl if she ever got to be that close to one.

Kevin said...

WOW!!!

I want to go to there! (to a place where I can hold a cheetah's tail)

Whirlochre said...

Looks like she's about to tug gently on that ole tail and have the cheetah's spots fire up like Christmas lights...

Ellen said...

SQUEE. it's so CUTE!!! <3

Dear Ms Reid

That is one cool-cat.

(Isn't there a saying, something like "Cheetahs never perspire"?)

It's eyes have a look like it has seen it all, and not all of what it's seen looked good.

This is mind-blowing.

That's me in the picture! Dave the Cheetah. Or Daithi O'Shiotagh, to use the Irish.

Look how alert I am, scanning the bush, hoping to catch sight of, believe it or not, Suzy Townsend. And there she is right behind me! She must think I'm so rude.

Tell her my brother bit my tail when I was two and it's been numb ever since. Just between you and me, that's not true. I'd been to a party the night before and I was still out of my head (note the remnants of my bondage gear).

Anyway, I wanted to talk to her about my book. Does My Tail Look Fat In This? Beauty Tips for Cats is going to be huge. The average cat knows shit about make-up and surgical enhancement. The feline market is untapped and ... (insert some marketing bullshit here)

By the way, have you tasted those new genetically-engineered baboons? Yum-yum!

Look at the time, gotta go. My spots need buffing. Love your blog.

PS. Call Suzy NOW. As you know, proscrastinators tend to get ripped to shreds by wild animals while walking home at night.
