Many pet people absolutely relish waking up next to their furry friends. But there’s a big difference between a tiny kitten to snuggle with in the morning sun, and a ferocious, fully grown tiger.  

Nevertheless, there’s nothing michael jamison loves more than waking next to Enzo, the great–hopefully very calm and not hungry–tiger. He even peppers the kitty with morning kisses. 

This video of Michael and Enzo waking up and snuggling together went viral back in January, and is still trending strong. It currently stands with over a quarter million views, most of which was accrued only since the start of 2013.
