Monkey Love

Posted on

I walked a million miles then came home and nearly forgot to write a blog post.

I do have something rather important I wanted to share with you today. While I’ve been sitting over here sniveling about my stupid wedding and acting like a spoiled child, my dear friend Monica has been out in the world actually helping people and doing something good with her life. I want to be more like her when I grow up.

This is Monica and her new friend Lolo. He’s a capuchin monkey, and he needs your help. Monica discovered him living at a hotel in Nicaragua, which I shouldn’t have to tell you is not a monkey’s natural habitat. Lolo is only little, and it’s suspected that his mother was probably killed by poachers. Monica has been working with Lolo to rehabilitate him and help him be released back into the wild where he belongs.

Monica has taken him to the Nicaragua National Zoo Rescue Center, and Lolo has gotten to spend some time with other monkeys. Hopefully his rehabilitation will be successful and he can go on to have a happy life. However, this facility could really use your help. To learn more about Lolo, you can visit his blog, and to donate to the organization helping to rescue Lolo and other animals like him, check out this link.

Sadly, the exotic animal pet trade is still up and running. I know a lot of you have pets that you love, and you know we’re crazy about animals in this house. However, monkeys and other exotic creatures do not make good pets. As humans, we’ve brought a lot of destruction to this planet, and we’re the only ones who can change it. Please consider donating to Monica’s campaign to help Lolo and the other monkeys at his facility. All creatures need our love.

  1. At 30 a man should know himself like the palm of his hand, know the exact number of his defects and qualities, know how far he can go, foretell his failures – be what he is. And, above all, accept these things.
    Albert Camus
