Shock the Monkey

Swiped right from the NYTimes.

I love animals and I don't eat them.

I love monkeys (and chimps) and I don't date them...anymore.

Just read these excerpts from the NYT article and then YOU decide if primates make good roommates:

"On one occasion, they got in a wrestling match, and Higgins put one of his “steel-like fingernails” through Bob’s scrotum."

"After Benjamin bit off two of his own diseased toes..."

and finally, this gem (you might wanna look away of you're squeemish)

“All of a sudden I feel a severe pain on the right side of my mouth and then I felt something dripping down my face,” Ms. Harrison says. “And there was all this blood, and I look over at Mikey [the chimp] and here he had my tooth in his hand, roots and all. He had pulled my tooth out with one finger.”

Folks, stick with those stinky ferrets.

After my squirrel incident, I don't even think the ferret will do.

I'll stick to Chase and Cleo, thank you very much.
