Friendships do not get formed based on gender or species. It occurs because of a foundation built on elements like love and trust. The viral Reddit video by SonicAkshay_26 showcases how a beautiful friendship has developed between a cheetah and a human. The whole story of friendship started when the photographer found an injured cheetah in a reserve. He was sympathetic to his condition and decided to take him to a medical facility. Fortunately, the cheetah survived the treatment and started a beautiful bond of friendship with the photographer.
The biggest role an individual can play in the life of others is that of a savior. This role was played by the photographer for the cheetah and therefore, the latter began to trust him immensely. It was evident in their next meeting, where just after seeing the photographer, he became a sweet little boy. The eyes of the cheetah showcased the love he carried for the photographer. In their third meeting, the cheetah had grown a bit but still remembered the photographer as he jumped into the latter's arms. The animal was able to do so because of the love and regard he had for the photographer. There was a sense of security that had developed over the years.
The most unique thing about this bond is that it has developed between a predator and a prey. Cheetah in the video should be attacking the photographer, but the sheer bond of friendship has instead made him formulate a relationship of trust. Love has overtaken the cheetah's primal nature. It showcases the power of genuine kindness. At present, the cheetah follows the photographer everywhere he goes, acting like his assistant.
The comment section was emotional seeing this friendship. BlackClover098 was emotional seeing this exchange and wrote, "This absolutely is one of the most beautiful things I've seen today it, brought me to tears I love it, my hope for Humanity is that humans and animals can cohabitate together and for us to show more love to them and to protect them always thanks be to God for the heart of humanity". rar_is_me chimed in with their own points and commented, "I swear there is a different connection spiritually between any living thing when it comes to helping someone in need."
It is not the first instance of a heartwarming relationship between animals and humans. Joao Pereira de Souza and Dindim, the penguin, are well-recorded animals and humans who have been proving the strength of their friendship for a long time, as reported by CNN. Dindim is a South American Magellanic penguin who shares a very deep bond with a 71-year-old man named Joao Pereira de Souza.
Every year, Dimdim swims 8000km to meet his friend Joao Pereira de Souza. The man is a retired bricklayer and a part-time fisherman. The friendship started when Souza saved Dimdim after the animal got washed up on the shore. The penguin was starving and covered with oil all over his body. Souza cleaned and fed him to bring the penguin back to life. It left such a deep impact on Dimdim that he now comes back to Souza every year.
