For those impatient! Skip to 07:00 for the Thank You from Gabriel The Cheetah. Too many people saying I took credit for something I didn’t do. I did not show much of my part because it was boring and wanted to give more credit to Papese and Steven; naming and thanking them. I built the two steps from scratch from a scrap yard, drug all that to the working yard, dumped it, pulled out all the nails, screws, chicken wire, measured all support boards, poles, and cut them to size, attached the cut boards to make the steps, reinforcing them with brackets I bought, and marked where the holes were to go into the ground.
THEN I asked the paid staff to help dig the holes and put together the parts. I finished boarding up the front and sides so Gabe can’t hurt himself, painted it all and then cleaned up, placing all material back where it could be used again.
The end where I screamed was me teasing about almost getting sprayed by Gabriel. Cats love to mark something new in their territory as theirs. He was beginning to point my way and why I leaned away. He did not spray me, but yes I was sitting where he pee’d earlier. I’ve sat in worse.
What a pleasure it is to care for Gabriel The Cheetah. Gabriel is legally mine and I look for problems to solve in regards to his health and safety. It really does not feel like work when I do projects and spend time for and with him. Gabriel is a breeding male at a registered cheetah breeding project in South Africa called Cheetah Experience. This a condensed version of the 10 days I worked, all compiled into about 8 minutes. Enjoy watching it as I did building this stair step to help prevent joint, ligament, tendon, muscle, and bone damage for Gabriel.
Cheetah Experience helped me gather parts, posts, boards, screws, bolts, and even staff help to build this stair steps for Gabriel. It all came from the scrap yard except for a few screws and brackets. I spent about 10 days building this thing and joke I spent more time playing and caring for Gabriel and the animals than working. Ok, I was on vacation and I love spending the time with Gabe and the others. Point is there is a LOT of work to be done daily and in the future at a Cheetah Breeding project like this. The work is gratifying because you know the the results benefit the animals directly.
