Shearling Coat-Wearing Monkey Found Wandering Around Canadian IKEA

I fucked up the headline of the thread when I tried to start it before, so let's try again.

Awww, "IkeaMonkey is a Rhesus Macaque Monkey Approx. 7 months old. In good health; stressed. Jacket is wool and said to be his favourite."

Poor baby.

He is really rocking that little coat. Who do you suppose makes tiny shearling coats for monkeys?

My monkey wouldn't be caught dead at IKEA.

Also, his coat would have been made of vicuna.

What's going to happen to him?

Only a fool would let his monkey wear shearling. It's a bitch to clean.

Is it real shearling or just wool?

Poor little sweetheart. He's so cute.

Who does he belong to? Is a home being found for him?

by Anonymousreply 812/09/2012

Did you read the link r8? He belonged to a couple who were shopping. Guess they forget he has opposable thumbs and could open the car door.

He was seized by animal control, apparently, since owning one is against TO bylaws. So the poor little guy won't be getting a home.

He should be returned to his owners, R9. That is his home.

You mean like the chimpanzee that ripped the woman's face off in Connecticut in 2009?

That was another exotic primate that its owner thought would be cruel to remove from its home.

Is he be taken to the zoo or back to the wild?

by Anonymousreply 1312/09/2012

r12 - This monkey is the size of a cat. No need to exaggerate.

But yeah, it's sad that the monkey has probably bonded with his owners and now will be taken away. Owners were probably fools though, if they thought it was ok to leave a baby monkey alone in their car.

r13 - Supposedly to a sanctuary.

Macaques grow to be much bigger than cats.

Will he wear his favorite coat at the shelter?

If not, maybe they can make a new one for him out of one his kind.

What makes you think this is my favorite coat? Have you ever worn shearling indoors?

by Anonymousreply 2012/10/2012

I wonder whose face he had for lunch.

by Anonymousreply 2112/10/2012

So they leave a monkey the size of a toddler in a car and suppose that no in the parking lot would notice and call authorities? Maybe someone would mistake it for a very ugly child?

by Anonymousreply 2212/10/2012

So will he featured first on "What Not to Wear: Simian Edition" or "Fashion Police Goes to the Zoo"?

Tiny shearlings, of course.

He'll probably get spanked.

I don't understand why the monkey wasn't returned to the owners.

They obviously cared enough about the little cutie to buy it that adorable coat.

I wonder what other little monkey fashions they now have at home that will now go un-used.

As one of the tweets suggested, I bet they were just buying him a little desk.

The owner wants her monkey back. She bought him a special Christmas outfit!

“If I walk in that room, let him choose. Does he want to come to me or does he want to go to that other monkey mom?” Nakhuda said. “If he chooses something else than me, that’s fine … if he wants to come to me, then I’m the one for him and I’m what’s best for him.”

He'd probably have a lot of fun in the kids' playroom.

How long will it take Ikea to copyright the idea of a stuffed rhesus monkey in a shearling coat and have it for sale at its stores?

Ha. One of those pictures has the monkey (kind of) dressed up like one of the flying monkeys from the Wizard Of Oz. (I think).

And the owner already has his Christmas and New Years costumes picked out.

And one of the pictures has the monkey brushing his teeth with the owner.

That monkey had a pretty FABULOUS life. I"m kind of jealous.

I can't help but think it's only a matter of time before Courtney Stodden is seen wearing that same outfit.

I just can't understand how it is in the best interest of the monkey to put him in a damn cage in a damn shelter. Why punish the victim?

by Anonymousreply 4412/11/2012

I think the owner is very well-meaning and has cared for Darwin very well. One of the problems with naive owners is that they don't know what a handful they can be. She had already once decided to return him to the breeder because he was was too much as a rambunctious youngster, but couldn't follow through because the monkey screamed and clung to her.

The family seemed to manage to find a way to handle the youngster. But nothing short of chemical alteration (if that's even possible) is going to stop or reverse puberty when they become more active and even uncontrollably aggressive. Even the females do from what I understand. I don't think these folks were equipped to deal with that. Maybe it's all for the better -- they can visit and the monkey can be be properly socialized with his peers.

Is the monkey not being returned to her?

No, it's illegal to own one there.

The owner bitch is a "real estate attorney" who has an earring on her lip.

She's bananas.
