Genet in the cutlery drawer

After our problems with elephants making cups of coffee in the kitchen at night, we were pleased that our next uninvited guest was a bit smaller! We would like to introduce you to our latest kitchen visitor – a beautiful genet.


This genet (Jenny to her friends) seems to like hanging out in the cutlery drawer, and has started to come every night to feed on scraps she finds in the kitchen.


Though she is very cute, we hope she doesn’t make the cutlery drawer her permanent home or we will have trouble finding our forks!

    Great story and photos. I was just reading that genets can be domesticated like cats and will even learn to use a litter tray! Lovely long tails.

    Hi all. The Lion Guardians were on the Australian TV news last night. Amy Howard was interviewed along with one of the Lion Guardians. I am not sure which Group Ranch was featured? It all happened so quickly. Great to see the Lion Guardians featuring in the media.

  • Pauline says:

    Amy, you were on BBC news too last Saturday. This must have been the Reuters visit, was it?

  • Hello – yes that was the Reuters visit! Great news that it has featured on TV across the world! Let’s spread the word about the work of the Lion Guardians!
