Perhaps endangered rather than vulnerable will help.

@@Atravelynn it certainly would. As I know it there is a threat to the cheetah population from wealthy people in the gulf who wish to keep them as pets. Perhaps they are easier to tame than other big cats,but they shouldn't be kept as pets.

There are all sorts of fancy domestic breeds now that resemble cats in the wild. You can even get cats with spots. If only they'd buy those instead of removing species from the wild. But money gets what money wants.

wild animals are not pets

 

getting attacked by your wild animal pet could really hurt

 

love cheetahs get a good pictorial book , put photos on your wall , visit them in the wild but don't have one as a pet

 

real action is needed

 

a change of status might help with awareness and funding
