Ramsey Leopard was truly a diamond in the rough. To those he didn’t know, he could be standoffish, gruff, and disinterested. But once he realized you were in it for the long haul, he would shine. He and I would discuss our weeks – the good and the bad. I’d bring him scent enrichment and over the years found that he loved catnip and spearmint but most of all he loved pineapple sage. He would drool and rub on the herbs before happily tearing them into little pieces. This simple, earthy yet powerful item reflects his charisma, measuring approximately 3″ from top to bottom of the leather fob and 2″ at its widest point.

Craftsmanship and Meaning: Each pendant is a testament to mindful craftsmanship. The stamp is created from an image of a footprint in the mud or a photo of a foot pad. This is then stamped into vegetable-tanned leather, and then dyed.
Ramsey Leopards’s Story: Powerful, clever, and agile, Ramsey was a majestic leopard with a remarkably easygoing personality. Like most big cats, he spent his days snoozing on a platform in the warm sunshine or in the cool darkness of his stone cave. On warm days he gingerly competed with his sister Savannah to make sure he got to use the cave, even if he had to sit behind her, and casually stretched out his legs to slowly shove her out the front of the cave. Ramsey was most active in the late afternoon and evening but can often be coaxed to rise from his mid-day slumber by the arrival of a staff member bearing his favorite treats—sprigs of rosemary or sage, or sometimes fresh venison. Then this garrulous fellow would ‘talk’, emitting a low groaning murmur that sounds one part annoyed and one part like begging. To our ears it sounded like a contented rumbling–the leopard version of a purr. (text from the Animal Park at the Conservators Center)
