ours are all spoiled too, naturally. We have a neighbor who has a male and female "Lap leopards", and they are gorgeous. It is so strange to hear it meow a normal meow out of a cat that one would think ought to have a snarl. I have played with lioness cubs, pet a full grown lioness, played with a friend's full grown snow leopard, talked with cougars, pet an African black leopard, and others, and love them all. We have a female Siamese, the daughter of one of my cats who is no longer with us. She is an absolute character, and loves to be aggressively played with. Anyway, suffice it to say, I love em!
