Bollywood’s sexiest lady Katrina Kaif is all set to adopt a leopard cub which is presently under the care of Van Vihar National Park in Bhopal.The said cub was rescued from a village by the park officials a few days ago and named after Katrina because the cub is extremely beautiful. So when Katrina came to know about this development she made inquiries at the Van Vihar National Park and expressed her desire to adopt the cub.

Assistant director of the park confirms getting a call from Kat’s assistant last week and also clarifies that the cub’s name is spelt as Catreena, not Katrina.The official goes on to say that Katrina will have to pay the park an annual sum of Rs 50,000 for the caring and feeding of the cub, if she indeed decides to adopt it.

Adopting the leopard cub doesn’t mean the animal will live with Kat. It just means she will be providing finances for its upkeep.

Kids Mistake Leopard Cub For New Pet Kitten

It’s an age-old story: Kids find an adorable kitten, bring it home and plead “Can we keep it? Pleeeease?” But this time, the kitten wasn’t just any cat Children in the Indian village of Bhatvadar brought home a kitten one night last week and played with the fuzzy feline throughout the following day, the Times of India reports. That is, until the kitty growled. “It was only when we heard the cub growling that we realized it was not a kitten, but a leopard,” villager Bharat Sakat told the Times of India.

Leopards prowl across Africa and Asia, and a unique subspecies is native to the Indian subcontinent, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). The striking, spotty big cats can weigh up to 200 pounds, sprint 36 miles per hour, and leap 20 feet forward in a single bound, the San Diego Zoo reports.

While they’re undeniably adorable, the powerful predators clearly don’t make great pets. Fortunately, the Indian villagers quickly figured out that they had a leopard on their hands. “Fearing that its mother might be nearby, we released it in the wild near where the children had found it,” Sakat said.

So the next time your kids come home with a kitten, whining “pleeeease,” remember that it could be worse.
