No matter how much time has passed, the animal recognizes its savior.
Animals know how to be grateful. They never forget kindness, they remember all their lives those who cared for them, who helped, who treated, who fed …
Everyone knows about the gratitude of dogs, the ability to remember good things, but this is not only characteristic of them. A chimpanzee, a gorilla, a bear, a lion…or 2 lions might be grateful.
The British newspaper Daily Mirror told an amazing story about a woman who saved two orphaned lion cubs 7 years ago.
She fed, raised and loved them, but the predators grew, and the woman could not provide them with good living conditions. She then took the children to a zoo in Switzerland.
Later, two adult predators were transferred to a specialized lion park in Slovakia. There they live freely in a large area next to their brothers.
It was in this park that the exciting meeting took place.
This is the first meeting of a woman with cubs after a long separation. She was very worried and did not know if two adult predators would remember her.
She watched in horror as wild cats approached the fence and … In a moment, the lions recognized their mother by name and rushed to her. How they hugged her. This is Love! This is gratitude.
