Adorable Baby Cheetah “Mewing” (Video)

This African cheetah cub lost her mother. The people who took her in gave her 44,000 acres to safely roam around in, fed her well, and–as you can tell by this meow-filled moment–treated her with care!

Glad she was rescued ...but she looks a little sad sitting there tired up (short!!) to the table!...
I think she was mewing for some social contact!....and not sitting listening to an awful TV!!!!..

She sounds like a bird!

It seems she is free to roam outside but kept tethered inside. We really need an explanation (which we may or may not believe) of why the people thought they had to do that. Is that any good explanation? Perhaps when they first got her and were sorting out something better? But then...would she be tame enough to stroke?

When viewing this video, it's arduous to remember, that one day they will grow up.

"Maybe some cheetah herd can accept a new baby"..............Patricia T., cheetahs do not live in "herds". They live as solitary animals except a female with cubs. Males almost always live alone, although sometimes young males related to each other may stick together for a year or so. A solitary cub is not going to be "adopted" by other cheetahs. She will have to be taught to hunt when she's old enough, and in the wild, that usually means by the mother, with whom she'd remain until she was 2 or even 3 years of age. She certainly could be TAUGHT to hunt "artificially" and it's been done by humans before, but not likely while leashed to a table, that's for sure.

When would be the time to return her to her natural habitat? Maybe some cheetah herd can accept a new baby. This happens all the time even without being from the same species,
