Pet cheetah Jolie is fed by owner Magda Pienaar in the family kitchen in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Big cat Jolie - named after film star Angelina - has made herself comfortable in Magda and Japie Bienaar’s house - sleeping on their bed and eating from the kitchen table. Magda said: I was really against the idea of getting a cheetah as a pet. One day I saw an advert in our email inbox about a cheetah auction. I knew my husband would try and buy one so I deleted it immediately. But a few days later his brother phoned, he had gone to the auction and bought three of them. He ended up selling my husband Jolie. But we are glad he did now - she is part of the family.
