Anyone who’s ever had a cat knows the healing power they have. They help us de-stress, alleviate depression or just cheer us up when we’re having a bad day. What those who have domestic cats may not know is the same is true for big cats.
When Riana was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent treatment at the hospital, she was worried about how Fiela might react to her, especially since her the treatment resulted in her hair loss. However, according to the BarcroftTV video above, Fiela approached her right away and licked her on the head, perhaps as a way to help her heal. Riana says that Fiela helped her recover, helped her fight the cancer. It turns out even big cats can share a special bond with their humans.
