pet lion

I have always half-joked that I want a pet lion or tiger – imagine the reactions you would get when it walked into a room full of guests during a party.

While I understand that keeping a [large, dangerous] wild animal as a pet is actually a terrible idea on many levels, I’m not gonna lie – this vintage photoset from LIFE of a family and their pet lion is making me kind of jealous.
