How This Lioness Reacts When Her Naughty Cub Ruins Her Sleep Will Make You Smile!


I’m sure every mother can identify with this poor, exhausted lioness who was just trying to catch a few minutes of sleep. Being a parent of a young child, whether human or furry, is equally as exhausting. Parents know what a struggle it is, between wanting to cuddle your sweet baby, and it being nearly impossible; between the constant moving around, the noisiness, and whatever else, sometimes it’s just best to sleep without them.

As children, we know that if we need something, we’re probably not going to wait until our mother or father wakes up; even if it’s not exactly urgent. This sweet video was captured on “safariLIVE”, a livestream run by WildSafari, in Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa. The video involves a mother lioness and her cub, unable to wait until she wakes up.

While his mother is peacefully asleep, he walks up and decides to awaken her by rubbing his head against hers!
