Cheetah cuddles up to woman with kisses and a lot of purring

An affectionate cheetah at a sanctuary in South Africa came up to a woman for a cuddle, and purred very loudly to show off its joy in this heartwarming clip.

The video, filmed near Klerksdorp on January 30, shows the cheetah quietly walk up to the sitting woman and start nuzzling her for attention, eventually lying down next to her and purring contentedly.

The filmer commented: "This over loving cheetah really melted my heart. Just look at him sneaking up on me and just want to cuddle and give kisses."
