My son killed his sister’s goldfish so we turned his room into a jungle to teach him how to take care of animals

It’s a jungle in there! Three-year-old Alfie Watkins’ bedroom has been transformed to teach him how to care for animals – after he accidentally killed his sister’s goldfish.

Father James, 45, and mother Samantha, 43, from Rainham, Essex, spent £1,000 on decorations and stuffed animals to help raise the boy after he tried to ‘squeeze’ sister Faye’s pets.

Samantha told The Sun: “We wanted to make him aware that animals have feelings too.

“He’s much calmer now.”

Now he falls asleep to the sounds of the rainforest and the chirping of crickets surrounded by dozens of different species of animals.

He has monkeys, lions, snakes, tigers and creepy crawlies all over the room and his mum has said Alfie loves his new furry friends.

His father James, who is working on The Lion King in the West End, built his bespoke bed with garden vines hanging over it and wallpapered his walls with jungle trees and branches.
