"Some other facts you’ll pick up from Cats Of Shambala: Lions do not purr. No big cats do except cheetahs. Lions like to hook your ankle to toss you down to play. Cheetahs chop, and it’s useful to know judo when in a cage with them. Tigers are edgy, lions are lazy; tigers like snow, lions do not. Sometimes, if you live in a city neighborhood, the sight of two young lions peeking over the top of a fence will make your neighbor semi-hysterical, even if the lions haven’t ‘threatened her in any way’ or ‘attempt[ed] to jump into her backyard.’ The neighbor will, despite having had ample time to ascertain her continued well-being, remain upset about it."
