It’s About the Sleeping Arrangements…

I don’t want to seem like I’m complaining; this is the best dorm on campus, and I know that. But I was assured that I wouldn’t get a freshman this semester.


Andrea T. says: “I realize there’s no shortage of cute dog and baby pics, but here is mine. Pixie (on right, sitting), with Victor (in swing, blanketed). The two are actually well acquainted and on good terms, but it looks like a surprise first meeting. Pixie, in fact, is sitting for a treat and ignoring Vic.”

Baby Nala: The Cutest McMonkersons you will ever see

So what’s the story? Frisky Sender-Inner Amelia says that according to owner Jennifer H.; Nala, a black Capuchin monkey was born April 25th. While a sanctuary is built for her, she lives in Vegas with a caring family. Nala helps two autistic boys and so far things are going great. Nala was not purchased at a pet store but rescued from a Veterinarian. Extensive, special training is required to care for Nala. To learn more about Nala check out her website!  See more Nala insanity (in movie form) here.

Shades of our breakdancing gorilla: This little orphan chimp at a rescue center in Cameroon loves to spin around until he’s so dizzy he bumps into the camera.

Behbeh monkeys suck their thumbs too you know

…and, and they have stuffed animals too.

It’s perfectly natural. Stop looking at her like that.

Kokamo ‘n’ Monroe

Kokamo, a gorilla at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, gave birth to a baby named Monroe this past June:

Raised By Ferrets

The little orphan child, who mysteriously appeared one day, was taken in by the local ferrets and raised as one of their own. They take baths together, followed by a bedtime story, then steal some jewelry, hide dirty socks and tunnel under the rug. Just like a real family.

I Put the ‘ehn!’ in Fence

Oh. Hey-lerrrrrrhe!


Apparently, this little prosh guy was inspired by other monkehs and kept attempting to scale the fence too. But it’s so hard! FENCE-HANCE:


Must…try!
