Mario Infanti sleeps with his best friend every night - a 15 stone mountain lion called Sacha.
The Florida native, dubbed "Catman" by neighbours, says of his unusual pet: "Sasha is more like family to me than a lot of my family. She's the love of my life, she's like my 200lb daughter. I would do anything for her."
His long-suffering wife Lenore condones the odd relationship and says: "what can I say? My husband is into cougars."
