The Gottlieb Native Garden

a california love story

The Gottlieb Native Garden is a flourishing ecosystem belonging to Susan and Dan Gottlieb, friends of flora and fauna and devoted environmental philanthropists. With more than 100 hand-selected plant species and hundreds of animal species, the backyard is a National Wildlife Federation-certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat and a Xerces Society-designated Pollinator Habitat.

Scaredy Cat!

In the last few weeks, one of our trail cams (positioned in the lower back garden) has been capturing a neighbor’s cat.  This cat enjoys exploring nocturnally – a risky business when you live in an area with many large predators and in the clip below something clearly spooks it.  We don’t know what it was, but telltale eye-shine is briefly visible.  

Felis catus and something lurking in the dark.
