Luckily, animal lover Andre Potgieter has nothing to fear from this particular 160kg (25st) predator as the two have been best friends for the past four years.
The South African farmer and his wife, Talita, took Storm in when her mother rejected her shortly after she was born in 2007.
‘From the first time she entered the house, she has slept in our bed between me and Talita,’ said 51-year-old Mr Potgieter.
‘As a cub, she had another habit of jumping into the bath with Talita and into the shower with me and then we had a wet little lion running all over the house that had to be caught and dried.’
Storm has also befriended the couple’s other pets, which include a zebra and three great danes.
‘When the dogs bark, Storm starts roaring and if she roars, they bark back. Our meerkat also watched over her when she was a cub.’
Lately, Storm has become very protective of her owner and will not allow many people close to him.
‘She means well though and I never thought in my wildest dreams that I could love an animal as much as I love Storm,’ said Mr Potgieter.
