It seems it doesn’t matter how long has passed, animals possess a special ability to recognize someone who has shown them kindness, love and compassion.
According to British paper the Daily Mirror, a woman had adopted two abandoned lions 7 years ago. However, they soon outgrew her capacity to sufficiently look after them, and so they were placed in a zoo in Switzerland.
The cats were later moved to a specialist lion park in Slovakia, where this particular reunion takes place.
For the first time, this woman gets to meet the two lions she adopted all those years ago. Obviously, it’s a nervous moment as the big cats approach the gate.
But then watch what happens when the pair of them jump up at the gate and recognize a familiar face.
