  1. this guy just made my whole day : )

    can the
    singing cougar join the chorus?

  2. “Two gnus and an antelope walk into a bar…”
    “take my mate, please”
    “I get no respect…wait, look at the size of my paws and I can run REALLY fast, so I get a lot of respect Hahaha!”

    Cheetahs are notoriously good joke tellers.

  3. His face and song remind me of the Cowardly Lion: all dream and no do.

  4. I am fascinated by his take on guyliner.

  5. He looks like he’s making biscuits with his front paws. :)

  6. Wait a minute! I’m usually ‘Juno’ here. How long have I been posting as ‘Judy B.’???

    Harumph. I’m going to get my eyebrow pencil and extend eyeliner all the way down my nose to my mouth, just to cheer myself up.

  7. And THAT was supposed to be a ‘reply’ to my post above! I’m going back to bed now. Harumph again.

  8. *looks around suspiciously* *picks up big stick* *climbs near by tree* *hopes for the best*

  12. Oh drat! Moderatified again!

  13. Hovertext: Impressive cheetah rhyming skills!

  14. I’ll catch a ostrich and put it in a pot-strich!
    I’ll catch a gnu and put it in a stew!
    I’ll catch an antelope and put it in a cantelope!

    I crack myself up!

  15. I think Juno/Judy B. has issues. :)

  16. I assume you mean the “tear stripes” going from the eyes to the nose. These are called “malor stripes,” which act as cheetah sunglasses. The reduce the glare, much like the black paint football and baseball players put under their eyes.

    Izzn’t tracylee s’pozed to be in charge of this post???

  18. fish eye no miko says:

    Oh, that’s neat! Thanks for the info. (-:

  19. You got that right. Send chocolate.

  20. Cool! Actual information! Mr. Guilt, you inspired me to do a little googling, which led me to this link

    http://cincinnatizoo.org/blog/animals/cheetah/

    which I highly recommend for any cheetah fans out there. Includes video with lots of cheetah running (chasing a ‘toy’ on a string, no less), more shots of the malar stripes, and a few seconds of a baby cheetah. I also learned that 1) cheetah’s claws are unretractable and 2) the zoo’s list of cheetahs’ diet starts with “small antelope.”

  21. I live in Cincinnati, and a member of the zoo–it is one of the few zoos in the US that actually runs their cheetahs, in the summer and fall. The videos show the run. One of their cheetahs, Sarah, is the current record holder for a 100m run (for all land animals): http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/08/cheetah-land-speed-record/

    If you have the opportunity to watch one of their programs, it’s definitely worth it. They are amazing to watch run, and, among zoos, it’s nice to see the animal doing what it was built to do.

    (the Cheetah Run also includes demonstrations by servals, ocelots, and a fishing cat)

  22. You’re not teh only one.

  23. I has teh hovertext snickers. ;)

  24. I posted a singing cougar up yonder ^ who wants to join in with Mr. Cheet :)

  25. (oopsie!!! *blushes*)

  26. oooooooooh tl :)

    Sooooooooooooooo prittie !!!!! YAY (feline-type) cougar photo!!!

    *shakes pompom in one hand and rattles tambourine in t’other ‘un…*

  27. “cheetah’s diet begins with ‘small antelope’ ” =
    me not likey the Darwinian system of Nature :(

    Signed,
    I know I know I’m a wimpy goofball.

  28. That was just amazing! Thanks so much for that wonderful link.

  29. Quintet. (Just sayin’.)

  30. Ooookey. :P

  31. It’s fun to go to the zoo early (Bronx Zoo) when they let the cheetahs out into their enclosure. First thing in the morning they chase each other around – it’s like cats with the super-duper zoomies. :D

  32. AWW :) One happy cheetah there :)

  33. I can just picture a Cheetah cookbook: “…take one small antelope…”
