She slept with those beasts and they licked her feet as she dreamed.

I wonder how a woman in that time became a lion tamer. Do you suppose it was a family business?

I do suppose it was a family business.

It would sort of have to be, right? But maybe she was just a small town girl who married a circus guy and one night the lion tamer got attacked, and she jumped in and took over right there in the center ring.

I would love to work with large cats. Before I die, I have to at least pet one.

Love you.

I once got to play with a Florida panther cub.

It was really cool. I was just a kid. It was like a playful kitten, but the size of a big housecat and with claws.
