This is a page right out of 'Calvin and Hobbes', except this is reality. A zookeeper by the name of Kevin Thatcher likes to bring his work home, and his work is a 6 month old tiger names Jonas.

The first thing that comes to mind is Siegfried & Roy, we all know how that ended. In order to own a large "pet," you have to be very comfortable with them. It looks like Mr. Thatcher has trained Jonas well enough to have the big cat walk around like a house cat.

Just let it be known that a cat can turn on you at any minute, and eat you like a gazelle. It's still pretty cool to have a tiger as a pet.
