Nimesha and Yamin by Akril15 Nimesha and Yamin by Akril15
Couldn't think of a better title. Sorry.

The aforementioned cheetah couple, talking about...stuff.

(The strange creature that pops up in mid-strip is Nim's sister Amita, who is actually laboring under the delusion that she is a dog, hence she is being just a little too friendly to Yamin, who is a slightly tense fellow (this is probably after he came to the realization that he has four "bullseyes" on his coat).)

Incidentally, cheetahs are very similar to dogs in many ways, including the ones Nimesha mentions. In The Spotted Sphinx, by Joy Adamson (author of Born Free), the author relates her experiences in releasing a female cheetah named Pippa into the wild. Pippa not only plays "fetch" with an old football, but on one occasion, contracts Babesia canis, a tick fever which affects dogs.

I love how he just disappears and they just look up! :lol:

Elsa the Lioness also had babesia; it was the first time it was known to affect a lion.

Thanks! The book mentioned that too; it's sad that she died from it.

The dog-ness of cheetahs is a big reason why they are my favourite cats. They look a bit like greyhounds. Another big reason is that I pity them; in several nature documents they're being bullied by about all other carnivores of Africa.

Nicely structured comic. I like especially the expressions of Amita.
