Welcome to this week's a 2 z: Take 2
and the letter T.
Well, believe it or not, it took me a few minutes to find what to post about for the letter T...which is really kind of amazing, and incredibly silly.
This is Toby, my Capuchin monkey. He's my sixth child and is a perpetual two year old. Thankfully, Jim and I always loved the two year old stage with our kids.
Here's Toby, clipped to "the board." It's a place we clip him for training, for safe, hands-free holding while we change his bed crate and blankie...all that fun stuff.
Last time he was here he decided he liked climbing the wall. A lot. He can scale that wall in .7 seconds flat.
My oldest daughter is one of Toby's favorites. We were deep cleaning his cage and while I spelled her, she sat with Toby and watched us.
While watching us, they got in lots of snuggle and cuddle time. Always a favorite thing.
Toby is full grown and when he's sitting, he's the size of a bag of flour. Tiny but mighty.
Below is Toby in his cage, his sleeping crate and blankie are behind him.
Here we are...me and my baby. Growing up, some of my friends had monkeys as pets (hey, we were MKs in South America, lots of jungle all around.) and I loved it the few times I had contact with monkeys...I just never ever thought I'd have a monkey.
So tell me, is there an animal you always wanted for a pet?
