Creeping into the depths of the internet yesterday, I came across a story of a lion who sleeps with a blankie. 

Yes. A full grown lion.rescued-african-lion-sleeping-with-blanket-8Sleeping with a blankie.

Upon further investigation, I found out this lion had actually come from an illegal adoption; people had wanted him as a “pet”… Not realizing he may grow out of the domesticated life???

Anyways – he’s now back where “he belongs” (ie. not living in a house with humans)… but looks like this guy couldn’t shake his vice.

The blankie he slept with as a baby.

Two takeaways:

1. Lions are not pets.

2. Lions with blankets may be our new obsession.
