"They were using a bear in the movie whose very best friend and traveling companion was a male lion,” explained Cici.
"The bear and the lion had their own room at a motel. When the bear was working, I would keep the lion company and
play with him, which is how I happened to be riding him when they took the photo. We had a very good relationship,
until one day I decided to comb his mane. He let out a mighty roar and gently took my hand in his mouth—and that was
the end of my feline hairstyling career!"
