People all over the world agree that dogs are man’s best friend but cat lovers might have a bone to pick with that saying that cats are lovable when they curl and purr and wind up on your lap. Animals, in general, are usually very loving and adorable towards their human even if we term them beasts of the jungle. We often hear of wild animals sharing a loving bond with humans and taking them as their own. However, we generally don’t think of big cats like lions, tigers, cheetahs etc as loving as other animals. However, by watching this amazing video of a cheetah sharing an adorable friendship with his human is heartbreakingly cute and melting hearts online. The cheetah met his human best friend after a year and in jubilation hugged and greeted him.

When the cheetah, known as Gabriel met his special friend Dolph C Volker after a year of separation, he could not control his excitement and his euphoria and jubilation at the reunion was captured on camera. The video has gone viral on the internet and people are busy sharing it for the raw and pure emotion it showcases. The 50-year-old Dolph C Volker returned at the Cheetah Experience Breeding Centre in Bloemfontein, South Africa after a year and his friend the cheetah greeted him with a big hug on his shoulder and licked his entire face lovingly. Elephant Plays Mouth Organ in Coimbatore, Adorable Video Becomes Viral
