The owner, who lives in Neveronys (near Kaunas), Genadijus Movinas, says that Ezi Chris is a very strong and powerful cat, but very peaceful and calm animal at the same time. The cat with the crown went into his cage right after the ceremony was over. It seemed as if the cat didn't even care about the celebration. G. Movinas couldn't say how much of food his cat eats every day. Ezi Chris lives together with the other cats and the owner does not limit dry mach for the cats.
