A new video has gone viral that shows a man casually resting against a wall while a black panther stealthily creeps up behind him. Just when you think disaster is about to strike, the panther pounces and starts licking the man’s face, who returns his affection by kissing the panther back.

It turns out the man is the owner of the Black Jaguar White Tiger sanctuary and the panther, named Kal El, is one of the big cats living there. If a panther can be so friendly with people, how come an ordinary house cat can’t be the same way?
