The tiger has been living in Berlin for several years now and has made a lot of positive integration efforts. Once he even almost passed the integration test. But for his chronic problem, the struggle to find an apartment, he has not yet found a solution. Since he arrived in Berlin, he has been staying here and there, sometimes with friends, sometimes over the weekend in the zooshop in the shopping center, but sometimes also under the S-Bahn bridge. He has repeatedly tried to apply for apartments, but for several reasons he has always been rejected: his paws would damage the floor, his weight exceeds the total weight per square meter allowed in the house rules or he is simply too wild. However, the tiger does not give up the hope of a safe accommodation. He walks through Berlin, strolls through neighborhoods where he has never been, and talks to all those who could help him. So be ready: the tiger comes to your neighborhood, to your neighbors, and perhaps to you!
