More on monkeys

August 8, 2007

I’m super-lazy this morning and so have no humorous commentary to add, not that [tag]JunglePete[/tag]’s post on monkey diapers requires humorous commentary:

When diapering a monkey, the most important thing is to cut a hole for the tail. Clean the dirty monkey butt, feed the tail through the new diaper hole and slide the diaper up the tail to the monkey’s bottom. The rest is just like diapering a baby. And I would know. I diapered a baby once (and two monkeys and one ape for that matter.)

Anyone that knows me knows that my parents ran the Florida Monkey Sanctuary from 1968-1988 in Venice, Florida where this diapering lesson came in handy. One of the most often asked questions then was “where do you get monkey diapers”? You don’t. You make them using preemie diapers. And for apes who have no tails, plain old diapers work fine.

Diapers? Litterbox! Every monkey needs a litterbox. Monkeys make cats look so good.

Given the propensity of monkeys to throw stuff, and by stuff I mean excrement, diapers are a must and would make most anything look good by comparison…feline or otherwise.
