Best thing about being young is not knowing when people aren’t being kind. Things that would bother adults fly over the heads of youngsters, and that is amazing. Turns out, this is not just a human trait.
This young cheetah loves the meerkats at his sanctuary. The meerkats do not feel the same about him.
Apparently meerkats are persnickety about whom and what they like, and will attack those they do not like.
So when young Kinji decided he wanted to spend some time with these creatures, he rubbed up against their enclosure. The meerkats were not as receptive toward this show of attention and decided to attack.
Literally, the cutest attack ever.
But since the young don’t understand the idea that someone might not like them, Kinji started purring, happy for the attention! Take a look!
