(WILDLIFE/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEO) Dolph C. Volker is a volunteer at the Cheetah Experience, a non-profit organization dedicated to conserving South African big cats. Within just a few days, one of the cheetahs named Eden grew quite fond of Volker, eventually cuddling up beside him one day as he napped under one of the trees in the reserve.

“Eden really liked me despite only knowing me for a handful of days,” Volker says. “This is what she does every time she meets me.” — Global Animal
