It’s quite normal to form a close and loving relationship with an animal, but it’s quite different when that animal is a 178kg (28-stone) tiger!

Abdullah Sholeh has formed a close contact with the six-year-old feline Mulan. Mr Sholeh grew close to the animal after becoming her full-time carer when she was donated to the religious institution in Indonesia at just three-months-old.

The pair are so inseparable, Abdullah often shuns his own bed to sleep alongside the big cat in her enclosure. For security reasons however, they have had to install metal bars to separate them when they are taking a nap together.
