Simba and Nala smile at you with genuine friendliness. You bow and say, "I touch your mane," and rather than answering, "I feel it," he purrs. That is the sign you are invited to really touch him. His mane is soft and deep, and you luxurate in the feel of it. Nala reaches over and touches you with her tongue. She is the next one you rub. "Tanabi said to tell you hello." She kisses you again. "Tell him I said hello back." From here you can go south to a small recess.
