Biography of Jimmy

Jimmy spent some time at the hospital when he had to get replacement footpads and new stitches for claws. All this wouldn`t have happened if only this stupid racoon had stayed away from the ski jump. You see, Jimmy was a ski jumper and one day when he trained for the olympics out of nowhere a racoon had camped in the middle of the track - and that was it - Jimmy lay there and could hardly move, but he fell lucky and after a few replacements he could look for another place to stay instead of the hospital.

He has been visiting us for some time, but we cannot accomodate him, as we are out of space, so for now he lives in the closet.

And well....... he is not amused!

Anyway, we serve him food and beverage on daily basis, and spent quite some time to find another cabinet to him.
