MEET the little lion of suburbia with a mane that makes him look like a mini-king of the jungle.
This 18-month-old long-tail Persian moggy called Daisy has the mane of a lion, little fluffy feet and even sports a pom-pom-like tail all because of a grooming problem.
According to her owners, since being shaved by the vet to rid her of her tangled hair, Daisy has even started to take on the personality of a young lion – by pouncing on human visitors as well as fellow cats.
Australian owner, Ben Torode, 36, lives in Japan with his wife Miki, 32. Ben, who works as a translator, explained the story behind Daisy’s transformation from a typical Persian cat to one that is more on the wild side.
