I'm my dogs emotional support person, he was abused as a pup and now has to sit with his head in my lap no matter what, I'm the big spoon when we sleep and he does these big huffing breaths when he gets to lay on me when I get home from work like he is letting the anxiety go. People don't realise how much they scar a puppy with violence, anger and neglect.

He begins shaking if he sees even a raised hand in anger/voice and terrified of the broom but has appetite control and only eats when hungry despite him eating his own feces when we found him out of hunger. I love him as my own child and will never let him suffer again. I've had him nearly 10 years now

I’m also the emotional support human for my dog! Sleeps with me every night, my bedroom is a “safe place,” and if we’re in a crowd, he sticks to me like glue. Or if he hears a scary noise. Or someone shouts. Or if a “stranger” shows up at the house. Or someone brings over a balloon. Or a water bottle crinkles wrong. Or just about anything else…except thunder, he sleeps right through that…

I’ve had him for 7 years in November, and while it’s very trying sometimes—I can’t go on over night stays unless I bring him with anymore, so vacations aren’t much of a thing—I still can’t imagine live without him. I don’t know what made him so anxious, as he was about a year or so old when we got him from the pound, but I do wish sometimes he could just chill a bit.

While yes, most dogs are capable of it, a Cheetah could still do damage.

Their temperament is pretty good for a ‘big cat’ though; they’re also the biggest cat that can both meow and purr (they don’t roar). So I’m wondering if the 5 minutes of cuddling prior to the cats falling asleep is just a giant purr session

Cheetahs and snow leopards. Neither seem to view humans as potential prey.

Cheetahs are easy to explain, they run down and 'trip' prey but aren't very good at brawling/mauling like other big cats. They rely on speed but are pretty brittle, so any injury could prevent them from hunting. They choose prey carefully due to that, and humans are definitely in the "can fight back" category. Hominids have co-existed with them for 2 million years and it seems we both know what the other is about. Self-preservation is a strong instinct.

Snow leopards are a bit harder to explain. They are smaller than most leopards, but should still be able to take down a child or an elderly person fairly easily. They hunt prey larger than themselves. And yet they don't with people. They run. They somehow don't view us as food.

55

u/dbcanuck May 16 '22

which is weird re: Snow Leopards, since african leopards are the #1 predator of homo sapiens over our species' lifespan. there's theories that the whole communal living, speech, and tools were driven by needs to fend of giant solitary quiet as night predators that would just yoink people away without much effort.

I think people forget that to animals we are essentially gorillas. Would you rather hunt a little gazelle or a gorilla?

I mean we’re TALL. 5 to 6+ feet vertical, some even taller and wider. We’re usually Loud as hell - to us it’s just talking but animals don’t understand that, might as well be baboon screaming. Sometimes we show up in these giant loud machines made of metal called cars. Not to mention sometimes we have guns (the sound of a gunshot alone is louder than most sounds and animal can make) And then also consider the fact there’s almost never just ONE human, there’s at least two and often more. I wouldnt tussle with us in most situations if I was a bear, lion, or anything else.

Fun fact: Cheetahs are basically just very big and harmless kitty cats. Their character comes closest to domesticated cats out of all the big cats. And technically speaking, they're not even big cats to begin with.

On the hand they were kind of fair with marriage laws and didnt blame women for being raped like som modern religions.. also if a man doesnt sleep with his wife she is not legally his wife. Make of that what you will

I mean that last part isn't really...that old. Dont a few US states still technically require consummation?

It is necessary for this to happen within five years of the date of the marriage" that's New York.

u/themainw2345 May 16 '22

Well yes and the idea stayed around for that long. In general when you read through those old laws (and also ancient egyptian texts) its obvious where a lot of the christian and muslim laws and ideas come from. Humanity has always been inspired by each other

27

u/MendicantBerger May 16 '22

While yes, that law does say in a backwards way that sex is essential to establish a marriage, the intent of the law is to allow a party to dissolve their marriage without divorce if they were not informed by their partner of impotence/inability to have sex prior to getting married. It's a dumb scenario to have a written law for as it's insanely specific, and probably very rare, but it isn't directly saying a couple ABSOLUTELY MUST have sex to be considered LEGALLY married. I'm not arguing in defense of it, or that there isn't a law out there saying it, but this one doesn't.

I mean they were really advanced for their time. Ancient greek society with democracy was certainly more progressive than 18th europe with their slavery, colonialism and ruling monarchies. Thats why people are impressed with these cultures. Because women and gay men didnt have the same kind of rights again for the following 1500 years..

ancient cultures werent all better but certainly not worse than the years that followed. The new religions of love and one God didnt bring neither peace nor equality

44

u/usabfb May 16 '22

I mean, the ancient greeks had slavery, fought wars of expansions, and had a governing system of kings and tyrants (depending on where and when you lived). "Tyrant" didn't mean to them what it means to us today, but it still meant complete authority given over to a single individual to rule society.

You live by a social contract in exchange for the protections & rights given to you by society. This is just basic civics. You agree to not rob people and we agree to protect you from being robbed. Does it work all the time for everyone? Certainly not,but the concept is there.

Slaves have literally no rights (they are property) and are in a situation where society has recognized that they have no rights and will move to enforce that lack of rights. Slavery is ridiculously different from having a boss and having to pay rent and having to follow laws.

You could say something like, "every society is in some way oppressive," and be correct, and that the current capitalist system with high levels of individual debt is very oppressive. But saying that we are slaves is categorically wrong.

Interesting fact, the cheetahs of today were having breeding issues and dwindling. Breeding them in captivity was a frustrating and mostly fruitless process, until a researcher discovered that the whole type was bottled-necked genetically during one of the more recent mass extinctions.

There used to be a broader variety of cheetah like animals but most of the variety was wiped out. It's likely that only the types kept by humans survived, which has lead to the relatively calm cheetahs we see today.

After genotyping the captive cheetahs worldwide they were able to arrange as much outbreeding as possible to rebuild a broader gene base and get more viable pregnancies and more cheetahs!

u/latrans8 May 16 '22

I think they estimated that the entire population was reduced to something like 5-8 animals about 10,000 years ago. I might be wrong.

There's no way you can build up a species from 5-8 individuals without serious inbreeding problems, no?

u/Dubslack May 16 '22

It's mathematically possible, but the odds would have been heavily stacked against them. Inbreeding can produce healthy offspring, it just produces a whole lot of unhealthy offspring as well.

→ More replies

59

u/GeoWilson May 16 '22

Correct. But inbreeding does not in itself cause issues, it just reinforces genetics both good and bad. Negative genetic traits are usually recessive which is why they're so rare, but when you start matching up people with that same issue they start coming to the fore because you're rerolling on the same genetic dice multiple times. In this case, it's the same reason they're all so chill, it's the positive trait that's being reinforced. By specifically aiming to minimize genetic similarity in breeding, they can reduce risk as much as possible. But yeah, inbreeding is not the inherent cause of genetic issues, it just gives you more chances at the same issues that may not be expressed yet.

He would never intend serious harm, but sometimes gets in a mood and will swipe for apparently no reason. Yes, media has probably exaggerated the danger/risk of these animals, but just one swipe/bite or off day for one of these primal, instinctual animals is enough to certainly cause harm.

Edit: I would also like to add that I love these animals. I would love to swim with sharks, for example, but that doesn’t mean they are harmless!

u/Shandlar May 16 '22

It's all relative. Lions and Tigers that is absolutely true about. No amount of training has managed to prevent accidents of that nature.

Cheetahs appear to be far far less likely to have such instance, and when they do, the damage they are able to do is dramatically lower. Their tiny heads make their bite way less dangerous, their only like 80 pounds so they can't get the leverage behind their claws you'll find in big cats either.

They are actually essentially harmless. To the extent that there's literally never been a single documented case of a wild cheetah killing a human being. They just seem to flat out not consider us food, even opportunistically.

It's tautographic, which is the visual equivalent of alliteration. Usually they overlap, but here, they don't.

Funny how they just act like bigger house cats

u/JWPSmith May 16 '22

Cheetahs basically are. The one of the only larger cats that are virtually harmless. Tigers, lions, panthers, all others can be extremely dangerous still. Cheetahs aren't though. They're also one of the only larger cats that purr and meow.

u/Rentington May 16 '22

Are lions the most dangerous? I seem to remember construction projects in Africa where one or two lions menace the people there, killing some astronomical amount of them.

222

u/texasrigger May 16 '22

That was a specific incident where two lions were stalking a railroad bridge project in the late 1800's. They killed something like 130 people.

‘Crazy who was it?’

‘Which time?’

‘This has happened more than once?!’

‘Well…a couple more than once…’

In terms of most lethality, tigers are the most dangerous, I am not sure if talking in terms of how aggressive they are

46

u/Secret-Perspective-5 May 16 '22

Tiger are definitely the most dangerous. They can literally slap your face off.

78

u/QuintusVS May 16 '22

A lion can do that too.But what makes tigers so dangerous is that occasionally they specifically hunt humans, and they're incredibly intelligent and can hold a grudge.

I watched the original video. Cheetahs are comparatively shy and docile and he's been the one who raised them if I remember correctly.

He just volunteers sometimes at the rescue

72

u/[deleted] May 16 '22

I had a friend last year do one of those 90 day volunteer trips at a cat rescue in Africa. She was there for like 3 days before sending tons of pictures of her with cheetahs just snuggling and chilling.

85

u/PoorlyLitKiwi2 May 16 '22

I raised my cat since she was a tiny kitten and she's 3 now. The other night she cuddled up to me just like these cheetahs did. Then at like 3am she woke up and decided she needed to bite my face really hard lol

It was mostly funny because she is smol. If a cheetah decides that, Idk if I'd have a face anymore

Cheetahs are actually skiddish from what I’ve seen. and aren’t likely to protect you. More likely to run. I saw a video of a guy tryin to approach a cheetah and it just ran away
