When cats are mating, it’s the female that controls the course of events. We came across a mating pair of lions in Masai Mara Wildlife Refuge in Kenya. This pair had been mating for a few days and the male was obviously exhausted, while the female was trying to get him to rise from his resting position. After trying for some time she succeeded in pushing the male up.
