If you ever wondered what a chatty leopard sounds like -- turn up the volume! 

We can't help but hear a heavy chain smoker but we still love Armani regardless of what she sounds like!

Not that we can blame them! Did you see how cute that cub is!? If not, you need to re-watch it again. And again. And again. 

This little lady of wildcat wandered into a factory one day and pretty much stole the heart of the entire factory staff! Just look at the way they look at her! 

OK, we might be major piles of mushiness, as well! Just can't be helped. 

This is a two-part episode that leaves on a cliff-hanger but don't worry too much! Here is part 2

In their bio, they describe their residents attitudes, "In many of our videos the big cats come of to be sweet, but wait until they are introduced to food.

Meet photographer extraordinaire, Mr Perou

Perou spent months working with The Big Cat Sanctuary in the UK, where he photographed big cats in hope to raise awareness about the animals at the sanctuary and their endangered wild cousins.

There Was A Black Panther Roaming Around Rooftops In France

There's a small French town called Armentieres that were in for quite a surprise this week. Why? A BLACK PANTHER was spotted on residential rooftops! 

One resident was able to capture pictures of the panther right outside his balcony window and uploaded it to Twitter. 

The Twitter user, Anton Bundle, posted the photo that shows the wildcat casually strolling by as if not a solitary care in the world.

It wasn't long until the authorities got involved, firefighters and police set up cordons to help keep people safely away from the panther as they thought of a plan to capture the panther safely. 

A security source spoke to The Sun, describing the panther as "calm and well domesticated."

"It took two hours to get her in a position where she could be trapped, and then a vet used a gun to fire a hypodermic tranquilizer at the animal as it tried to climb into a window."

The security source continued, "She was taken to an animal refuge center and is in good shape. Her owner is known to police but has gone on the run."

Turns out, as if it were a surprise to anyone, that the wild animal didn't have any registration documents, meaning that she was more than likely a "black market animal" who had been trafficked to France illegally.

Thankfully, the panther is now being held safely at the Protestant League of Lille (LPA) and spend the night in a blacked-out cage, which is known to reduce stress in wild animals. 

An LPA spokesman said the panther is "quite young" and "like Labrador."

The LPA has already contacted a nearby zoo in the hopes the panther can find a new home.

Science Confirms: Cats Are Mean

Cats can be a**holes, and most of the time, they are (aside from those rare moments when your cat shows you affection and it feels like clouds in the sky are parting to reveal the sun shining behind them). But despite the standoffish, b*tchy behavior and simply mean things cats can do, we always gave them benefit of the doubt. 'They can't understand us', we reason. 'If they did understand, they wouldn't act this way.' Well, I'm really sorry to burst your bubble and possibly ruin your relationship with your cat, but I've got some news for you: cat's DO understand you and cats are MEAN. At least that's what the latest science says. 

why cats are jerks: it's science
