~ Meshak repositioned the vehicle for an improved view of Amani. One of her cubs was ardent in showing affection. The tongue-bath and kissing was accompanied by gentle sounds, presumably cheetah affection. Being so close to the intimate interaction felt mildly intrusive. I was grateful for the time with Amani and her cubs, but also glad to move on to leave them to their familial privacy.
