THE SOPPY SHEILA SELECTION

A wild long-tailed macaque monkey has adopted an abandoned kitten, caring for it as his own at Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali. You can look at at loads more cute photos of the soppy pair at THE GUARDIAN.

THE SOPPY SHEILA SELECTION — 8 Comments

  1. That is quite the mangy looking little cat.

    The monkey is a bit possessive. I hope that does not bode bad omens for their future relationship as the cat grows less dependent.

    Have you ever tried to hold a cat when the cat was in no mood to be held?

    I am just saying.

    I think that is a yet to be discovered species of dinosaur.

  2. Oh, that is Just. So. Beautiful.

    Such fabulous pics. It’s hard to see the macaque’s body language as anything other than tender and protective.

  3. This is like a Rorschach test – Ellie and me say “awwww” and Dah-veed says “Don’t trust the bastards whatever you do”

  4. Be gentle with Dah-veed. He went out with a long-tailed macaque monkey once and it didn’t end well. The monkey dumped him for a tom cat with more tattoos than Edinburgh Castle.
