Meet the man whose best friend is a tiger: Feline kisses, hugs companion (PHOTOS)

It is quite common for people to form close and loving friendships with animals.

But it is quite a different matter when that animal is a 27-stone tiger with a fondness for fighting.

Abdullah Sholeh, 31 has formed an unbreakable bond with four-year-old feline Mulan.

He regularly sleeps, plays and fights with the enormous tiger.

The pair spend every day together after Mr Sholeh helped raise her from a three-month-old cub in Malang, Indonesia.

He now cares for her full-time for owner Noer Mohammaed Sholeh – and has become affectionately known as the tiger nanny.

The pair are so inseparable, Mr Sholeh often shuns his own bed to sleep alongside the big cat in a rickety outhouse.

And Bengal Mulan is even known to ‘mock attack’, hug and kiss her companion when they play in the garden behind their home.

However, despite the playfighting, Mulan clearly doesn’t appreciate her strength.

As one picture shows, Mr Sholeh was left with a bruised and bloodshot eye after being caught by one of Mulan’s paws.
