You can take the lion out of the jungle, but you can't take the kitty-kat out of the lion.

In this precious video posted by The Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation, Kiara, a beautiful lioness shows that cats never forget when she has a giddy and emotional response to being reunited with her estranged adoptive father, Adolfo.

As you can see, Kiara is already waiting with anticipation for who is coming to see her, and can contain herself no long once the gate is open.

It actually looks pretty terrifying at parts, but her biting and tackling seems to be held back in all the right places, making this a fond embrace!

The Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation is based in Mexico and has a mission statement of rescuing bigger felines from bad circumstances. Best of luck to her, but it looks like she's already had one super happy moment!
