If I had an opportunity to pet a wild cat, I would definitely pet a cheetah. Of course, other wild cats such as lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, and other are very beautiful and attractive. However, there are a lot of reasons why I would decide to pet a wild cheetah. In fact, there are loads of people who have wild cheetahs as their home pets. I also think that a cheetah is the best wild animal you can safely and successfully pet.
One day, I saw a picture of a travel blogger who was hugging two big cheetahs. The cheetahs’ mouths were not covered. That time, I wonder who could that man approach the wild animals without being frightened of them. I thought that the cheetah could maul the blogger. It was a big wonder for me. Then, I started making my researches on the Web. Finally, I discovered that cheetahs are the most docile and peaceful wild cats existing in the world. In fact, a cheetah is more friendly than those small cats we pet in our homes. Also, I found a lot of interesting information about cheetahs. Let me tell you about the main reasons why you should pet a cheetah if you decide to have a wild cat in your house.
CHEETAHS DO NOT ATTACK PEOPLE
If you have a lion, a tiger, or a leopard in your home, you will be always under a big risk of being attacked. Anytime, these big cats can attack you. Hunger is not the only reason why wild cats attack people. You never know what is in their minds. Thus, their actions are truly unpredictable.
Cheetahs do not attack people. Firstly, cheetahs are very light and small. They do not consider people as their prey since we are too big for them. They usually hunt small animals such as antelopes and gazels. A tiger or a lion can easily kill a mature person within a few minutes. If one of them gets on you, you will be unable to resist their attacks. Their body mass is too big for a human to handle.
If severely disturbed, a cheetah can attack a human being. However, this attack won’t be fatal. Presumably, it will scratch your hand or leg. You can punch it once, and it will go away. There is no a documented case of a cheetah killing a person. It is necessary not to disturb or insult cheetahs if you don’t want to be attacked. Watch the video below. This happens when a person disturbs cheetahs too much.
CHEETAHS ARE THE FRIENDLIEST CATS IN THE WORLD
In fact, wild cheetahs are more emotionally warm than our home cats. Cats are very selfish and manipulative. Cheetahs are very lovely and friendly. If a cheetah gets emotionally attached to you, it will show all the possible signs of its affection.

CHEETAHS ARE RARE AND EXOTIC CATS
Recently, I have found out that there are only 15 000 cheetahs in the world. Thus, we can say that this is a very rare type of animals. You cannot buy a cheetah in a zoo shop, nor can you find it on the Internet. In the USA and other Western countries, it is illegal to pet cheetahs. You can buy and pet a cheetah somewhere in Africa, Latin America, and in Asia.
Cheetahs are exotic cats. Nowadays, it is not a miracle to have a cat in your house. Even if you possess a wild serval or a lynx, you cannot boast of possessing something truly exotic. If you want status, you should pet a cheetah. If you are rich, buy yourself a cheetah. This will be the right choice for an affluent person.
YOU CAN EXERCISE WITH A CHEETAH
Cheetahs are the fastest runners in the world. Its speed gets up to 114 km/h. They are even faster than supercars.

Thus, if you like physical exercise and running, you can always play with your cheetah in your backyard. If you re a bodybuilder who wants to cut some fat by doing cardio, playing with a cheetah will substitute several hours of active training in the gym.
