    My favorite primate!

  5. I am “onion-eyed.” This is a fantastically wonderful photo.
    It breaks my heart that there are jackass idiot humans who kill and/or torture these and other animals for fun or money, or who don’t believe animals have feelings or emotions. They should all, in their jail cells, be made to look at this picture for 2 hours a day. Oops, there go my onion-eyes dripping on the desktop.

    Ded. *thud*

  7. Soooo… sweet. *melts*

  8. You just know that there is a very, very sleppy wee baby at the other end of that tiny hand. And a loving but very tired mama at the other end of the big strong hand.

  9. Mary (the first) says:

  16. Seeing things like this make me feel as if I am blessed, if maybe only for the moment. But, still, I am blessed.

  17. “Hope” is the thing with fur-
    That perches in the soul –
    And sings the tune without the words –
    And never stops – at all –
    (apols. to miss Dickenson)
    Pictures like this give me hope. Thank you CO!

  18. You gotta say the whole name, Brinke. Orangutan = man of the jungle. If you just say ‘Orang’ it means Man or person or human being. 🙂 (that’s indonesian btw)

  28. Fird Birfle says:

    *tucks a goldfish bowl under one elbow, and a Lionhead Bunny under the other arm.*

    *Tucks in the pink fluffy blanket, under Shawpie-Wawpie’s chin*

    *Tiptoes out of room, wearing squeaky, polished, white Nurse Shoes*

  29. Fird Birfle says:

    *places a hermit crab in a terrarium on a bedside table and a longhair, beatnik
    guinea pig (with a tambourine, for the Poetry Readings)
    running, inside its wheel on another table, on the other side of the bed*

    *IV’s icy tart lemonade into RoadRunner’s mouth*
