Jaguars are doing Valentine's Day better than you

Keepers at Dade City's Wild Things set up a tableau for jaguars Cassie and Luther for Valentine's Day.

From the media release's details: The male and female were treated to roses (um, okay), a table cloth (sure) and dishes "filled with choice meats" (now we're talking).

Luther, the black jaguar, was the first to check it out, Wild Things says, noting, "Cassie (the spotted one) was a little harder to please as she had to move things around to make it her own." We totally get that, Cassie.

The animal sanctuary goes on: "After along night of enjoyment, they relaxed with some loving and kisses." We should all be so lucky, Cassie and Luther.

Well done.
