The Urban Jungle Bloggers topic for February is Jungle Animals. It got me quite excited though we do not have any pets, I felt this is my chance to show off the cat I bought on a trip to Brussels and a pair of giraffes given to me by my beloved husband. Not to forget showing off the succulents and indoor plants that I truly love so much.
