A Little bit about Gimli's Feline Jungle

Making a very feline Swedish jungle out of plants and cat trees with the help of four felines of very different sizes and characters: sister and brother Melis and Kraxos found in a rubbish heap on Crete, and brothers Gimli and Primus, rescued from a family that bought a dog. Gimli and Kraxos are my most active collaborators, Gimli being the thorough investigative botanist, and Kraxos the walk-on, teeth-in plant enjoyer.


Where does your "lion" like to sleep and describe your photo!

A botanist Bengal lion cub of 13 years, Gimli enjoys his comforts, but most of all he needs to be close to me, often sleeping on my arm. This time, he fell asleep on the chair next to mine, still holding a leaf of the Pothos he had been examining and caring for.
