    • Nolaboy

    freaking nuts

  • MonkeyMadness

    #2 Where does a 500 pound lion sleep? Anywhere he freakin feels like!

    • mihaisuzuki

      This is not normal…That big cat should stay in the wild not trapped in some house.That's not a lion anymore.That's an oversized pussycat. Although i wouldn't want it to get on it's bad side 🙂

  • Poodle of Death

    Not sure if fucking scared or fucking jealous O.O

  • Wet_tosti

    Did anyone let the closet door to Narnia open?

  • Stinky Pete

    Later that day, while he was out partying, his house got burgled 😛

    • Yo diggity


    • babychairing

      When he came home, he did not notice anything unusual but Simba seem to have lost his appetite for the week and was constipated.

  • Coy

    Would totally suck to be on poop patrol in that household.

    • ROK247

      can't imagine what kind of litterbox that thing would need…

      • Underbaker

        Would be totally awesome if they toilet trained him. Imagine seeing a lion on the pot when you open the door.

    • StaticFX

      not only would it be easy to find them, you could break an ankle if you werent paying attention!

    • chicago

      they probably burn through vacuum cleaners and furnace filters like the amount of kibble it eats.

  • C Dubs

    step on that lion's tale on accident one time and it'll go from being his best friend to his best meal…

  • brentbikerun

    I want one

  • Chester

    Mai dung pu.

  • Fabio

    Like as I care.

    • Jawbone

      You took the time to type a response. Poorly.

      • Ricco

        Yea, go back to the roller coaster Fabio. LOL

  • SuperiorTo8

    #14 OK guys. If your not going to eat it, then I'm not letting it go to waste

  • Quickr

    until someone gets hurt

    • Jawbone

      You noticed the decorating and clothing, right?

  • Leo

    #8 check it out, it's K9 teeth are cut off.

    • StaticFX

      that is disturbing… wtf

      although, could still kill you if it wanted to.

    • ImpressMe

      That is why the Lion was at the preserve….because of what had been done to it…… they didn't do it so they could keep it as a pet.

    • sfwaterdragon

      Only one of them is gone; the one on the left (lion's right) is still there…

      • myself

        They were cut, not removed. Those canines you are mentioning at nowhere near full length. They are just molars that are in the wrong animal now.

  • TempTheGuest

    Declawed ,defanged, and very possibly neutered. The shame.

    • You

      Exactly. Not nearly the paradise it's made out to be. Defanged and declawed but not castrated (pic 11 gives a hint), but still, a needless thing to do to an animal that could kill you simply by hitting you with its paw.

      Humans, in general, are idiots.

    • etcrr

      Yes they were abused, that's why she created the Shambala Preserve to take care of the abused cats

      • Flicka

        etcrr hit it: The family created the preserve for abused animals like this. They kept this one. Nobody got hurt.

  • nathan

    that is so crazy awesome…i wonder if the cat ever had a bad day…or what did they do when they irritated the cat or the cat accidentally "scratches" you hahaha oh and i wonder how big the cat box is…SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!

  • Oddie Monsta

    Lol yeah totally not smart

  • seagan

    #6 would shit myself every morning

  • Aaron

    Leo, K9 is from the word Canine which are dogs or doglikes, this is obviously a cat. Therefore he's a feline.

    • Dave

      He meant canine teeth you fucking retard

    • David

      are you kidding or being serious?

    • dpep


    • Ken

      I have canine teeth Aaron, does that make ME a feline?

      • Meh

        I have nipples Greg… can you milk me?

        • asdf

          you can milk anything that has a teet Meh.

        • Guesty

          He will milk your penis

    • for shame

      Fuckin' derp to the max over here…

      just in case you were NOT joking:

    • gary

      Aaron, leo was referring to the lion's fangs, which are commonly referred to as canine teeth. Before you correct someone, be damn sure you know what you're talking about.

  • A2_tha_MFK

    Always ends in disaster

  • dashete

    #14 Well, I just realised my childhood sucked.

  • MonkeyMadness

    It's all fun and games til he eats your kids. 😛

    • Generic User Name

      Then it's profitable, too!

      Okay, maybe not profitable, but revenue-positive, as it eliminates some overhead.

    • Tom

      Notice they removed his large Kanines. But still, yes, he could eat the kids. I'm sure they de-nutted him as well.

      • Really?

        I don't think they did that, I think it was part of the abuse the animal had already suffered. A male lion lacking canines in the wild is pretty screwed as wildebeest doesn't come in smoothie form.

      • babybusa

        Did you not look at those photos? He is obviously not castrated.

  • girn

    sometime im of poops dont no how 2 say on english.but the clamps have bargin

    • sadman

      I couldn't agree more. Is that a saying from your country?

    • Danny


    • cr1min4l

      Well said, sir.

    • Dave's Cat

      Sometimes I wonder if the clamps have more bargin than anyone realises.

  • dragos


    • MonkeyMadness

      Not by a long shot, asshole. You barely made it on the first page.
