One of my favorite cats is the Cheetah - even if they are not one of the Big Five. Their beautiful faces and their amazing ability to get up to a speed of 60mph in seconds when chasing their prey, defies logic. But I must say that one of my more exciting adventures in Africa was in Kenya in 2005 when we had a female Cheetah jump onto the hood of our vehicle. OMG - it was amazing. Cheetahs tend to get to a higher place because it is easier for them to see potential prey. (She truly was not the least bit interested in us). The Cheetah in this picture is named "KiKi' - named by the BBC crew and as far as I know she is still alive. You may even see her on National Geo Channel.
