    Guard Dog.

    • HatBomb

      You will NOT be outrunning that guard kitty. Fact.

      • Jack Wagon

        hows about no.

    • Mjmchiver

      Yea, best guard dog ever- until Jolie Gets startled one day and grabs ahold of her owners jugular. It's just a matter of time until this cheetah follows its natural instinct.

      • Ruttiger

        Actually, Cheetahs are well known to be quite domestic & very compatible with humans when raised as pets from young. Leopards on the other hand … no matter how well behaved when young they almost always turn once they reach a certain age. Hence the saying, a leopard never changes its spots.

    • Versari

      It's a Feline man.

  • Myst

    I want a pretty cheetah as a pet where can you buy one in Canada?? Or even a mountain lion;)

    • krypto092108

      @Myst: There are laws against that here, in Canada…. Thank God…

      • Scooter Mcgavin

        Canada has laws? This is news to me.

        • Scooter Mcgavin

          I also thought this was page one. Had two browsers open. Major fail on my part.

        • krypto092108

          We have laws. It's just that they get ignored most of the time, when they're not being broken outright…

    Not one picture with a bag of Cheetos? WTF?

    • Rob

      • MylesofStyles
        • Rob

          Hahaha thanks, 14 days delivery, the wait is on.

      • @Speedstripe

        We used too. They where short lived though.

        It was generally cheaper to get one of those HUGE bags of puffy chips from the corner store. I never did though because I was too busy loosing my money in the cadilacs and dinosaurs arcade machine.

  • givethedjabj

    Got told when on safari in Kenya, 'If you see a leopard, shoot it on the spot'

    (i'm here all week)

    • Cranzo

      Cheeta does not = Leopard.

      • givethedjabj

        Oh dear, and it's Cheetah you sad person

  • chicago

    #12 #20 it's that whole nature vs nurture thing. best of luck when it gets in a 'mood'.

  • Rob

    Cheetos wtf come on

  • Mr_fn_T

    Seems like this "pets who will probably kill you one day" thing has become a weekly post. What's next? Hippo in the swimming pool? I hope so…

    • Androaz

      I'd PAY to see that

    • GuySA

      We had a hippo in a pool for a few days in the WC in SA. It died unfortunately. Google Solly the Hippo

  • Rick

    must have to keep it well fed, couldn't imagine wanting a hungry cheetah in the house

    • CaptainInsano

      That German Shepherd is equally lethal

      • rick


  • Ethix_

    Is Russell the cheetah? And when did the cheetah say that I could profit $6532? I'm so confused.

    #19 I'm sorry, they have a Cheeta AND a Lynx….the countdown to mauling begins.

    • Jeff

      I noticed that also

    • Justin

      I believe that's a Caracal, not a Lynx.

      • Jeff

        Fuck you, you piece of shit.

        • Justin

          Want to be best friends?

        • Jackson

          Fuck you, you dumb piece of shit. Lynx' don't even live in Africa.

      • KCO617

        You sir, might possibly be correct.

        • emailhobo

          He might be correct but he still wants to fuck you.

          • Justin

            Nope. Just correct.

  • tv_paul

    Remember..Cheetahs never prosper.

    • Regal Eagle

      Animal puns are terrible. I ain't lion.

      • tv_paul

        I know, there unbearable.

        • OhioChiver

          Oh quit pandaring to the masses.

          • WonkyS

            Owl wait for you lot to finish because your giraffing me crazy with all your ANTics. In fact even my own hawkward rant is making me horse now. I am too highly koalified to lower myself to your level.

    • BSS

      Stop splitting hares

    • Mr_fn_T

      I don't mean to badger you, but if you keep posting these bad puns, the chive community might ostrichize you

  • BrendanTheKid

    This can only end well.

  • RobboJohn

    I cannot help but say it…AWWWW!!! I need to go hug my cat now whether he wants to hug me or not.

  • temujin1234

    Awesome pet, although you might have trouble making it stay off the furniture. #7.<img src="; alt="." width="1" border="0" /><img src="; alt="." width="1" border="0" />

      "Get the fuck down!"
      *growls at you*
      "… Or, you can stay up there if you want. I really don't mind."

    There's rugby on every TV. You just gotta love Bloem.

  • bczu

    Cheetah just jumps up and licks their chicken….he runs that house. And when his dominance is tested. He will F someone up.

    • Crystal

      I wanted to like your comment but hit the wrong button :-/ poop

  • @RDRKeeper

    so Cats when domesticated are all the same regardless of breed? o.0 #21

  • Beev

    lets see what happens if that dog tries to pick on a cat…

  • V4Vendetta14

    #3 Love the stripes down from it's eyes. Such a graceful animal.

    Not sure this is the answer to the loss of their habitat. A wild animal still has wild tendencies. As much affection it gives it's owner, it has the instinct to bring down game. And it would never get to do what it was born to do, RUN.

    • 29er

      To quote The Other Guys, "I'm a peacock, Captain! You gotta let me fly!"

      • MEEEEeeeee

        judging from the pictures the owners don't keep it locked up in the house all day…. nature preserve? #10

        • wtf

          Cheetah's can be domesticated- they need to learn how to hunt from their mother, unlike lions and leopards. And, for your own good, NEVER confuse a cheetah with a leopard 🙂

  • John

    The cheetah looks happy. All animals were meant to be wild, But if the creature is happy let it live and be happy.

  • pepito115

    #17 Can't decide which is cooler: the bear house pet from an earlier post, or this guy. Either way, this picture makes me smile.

    • nuccabay

      cheetah! although housecats suck, big cats are still the shit

  • aiden

    it's all nice and great until someone gets hurt. it's called WILD animal for a reason

  • Angela Nelson

    #17 love
