The notion that “the dog is man’s best friend” is well-established, yet some individuals find absolute loyalty in creatures they never expected.
This is what happened to Joan Lascorz, a former racing driver who was paralyzed after a tragic accident but discovered real companionship in a strange feline.
Joan is a Spaniard whose life was turned upside down in 2012 when a motorbike accident in Italy left him unable to use his lower limbs and confined to a wheelchair.
However, this shift was insufficient to quell his urge to experience life to the fullest. Joan has found other activities to channel the thrill she had during the racing.
This driver has struggled to stay in the racing scene and has had to change his vehicles, but his greatest drive in life was discovered in the claws of a cheetah. Joan had reared the kitten from a young age and understood how to earn his trust. Despite its size, the animal behaves like any other pet.
To many, the man’s living with this partner appears hazardous and excessive, but the relationship that the two have formed is unshakeable. Joan is unable to leave the house without her cheetah accompanying him.
Despite his power and size, the cat is gentle with his father, and all of this was captured in a touching video that the guy published on his Instagram and which surprised everyone.
The animal can be seen sneaking up on its father in the photos, where the pampering and shows of devotion commence. The guy even brushes his nose to the cheetah’s and kisses it, demonstrating how much they trust each other. Is there a more impressive display of faith than that?
The feline acts like a genuine pet and is lavished with attention, to the point that it rests its head on its human father’s lap, like many cats and puppies do.
The video has received over 14,000 views on Instagram, and many viewers have fallen in love with the scene:
