It's cheetah "kitten," no? I think only lions and tigers and panthers have cubs.
Lions and tigers and BEARS, oh my!
Leave it to the experts, mate.
IIRC, dogs have been used historically as companion animals for captive cheetahs. It's probably on the wiki somewhere. I distinctly remember reading an article in National Geographic that said at least one adult captive-bred cheetah was introduced to a dog and they really hit it off, and had a lot of fun being best buddies.
I can see how an even-tempered breed dog would be good for a captive cheetah. Cheetahs need a lot of exercise to stay healthy, and dogs are sources of boundless energy.
I watched a documentary the other month with the kid (Netflix I think) showing unusual animal friendships. One was a cheetah and a yellow lab. Now grown up they would run the cheetah and the dog daily for visitors. Cheetah was faster but the dog had more staying power.
They'd be a great killing team...Cheetah for the take-down, Ridgeback for the finish. Yikes.
