SOUTH BEND, IN (WSYX/WTTE) -- It's the "purrfect" way to start your day.

A pregnant woman in Indiana got some unexpected attention from a tiger while she was visiting the Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend, according to WSBT in South Bend.

Brittany Osborne was at the zoo's annual "Wine on the Wild Side" event last Friday when she started recording the interaction between the feline and her expecting cousin, Natasha Handshoe.

After some purrs and howls, the tiger then started pawing at Handshoe through the glass. Handshoe then stood up when the tiger started nestling its head against the glass as if it were trying to snuggle her baby bump.
