A Lion called Christian

A Lion Called Christian
John Rendall & Derek Cattani

To raise funds for the George Adamson
Wildlife Preservation Trust a very special
event was held on World Lion Day in the
Sophisto-­Cat antique shop in Chelsea, London.
John Rendall, carer of Christian the lion and
author of the best-­selling book ‘A Lion Called
Christian’ was signing copies of the book.
Christian’s personal photographer Derek Cattani
held a wonderful exhibition of Christian in London
on the walls of the shop, this will also form part
of the permanent exhibition of his photographs.
Guests and fans were treated to a wonderful,
nostalgic afternoon in the shop hearing John’s
fond memories of his time raising Christian
with Anthony ‘Ace’ Bourke. & Derek explained the
fun of photographing a very unpredictable lion cub.
