You guys, I seriously want to introduce you to my actual friend (ok, I have met him) named Pockets Warhol, who is a Capuchin monkey who lives in Toronto. Look him up on Wikipedia. He lives in a lovely monkey sanctuary that has many ex-lab monkeys of different kinds who are having their first chance at any kind of life. Pockets was once a pet (I know, terrible idea) whose owner realized he belonged in a sanctuary to have a better life. One day, he was given the chance to paint as an enrichment activity and he loved it.

He has become an internationally famous artist whose work has been shown in exhibitions. He is a friend of numerous celebs, and recently collaborated on paintings by Belinda Carlisle of GoGos and is the cover of Martin Gore of Depeche Mode’s new album. Ricky Gervais is a friend and collector.

He is on Facebook and Twitter and lives at www.storybookmonkeys.org or .com.

His so wonderful and cheerful. Capuchin monkeys are the most intellectual advanced of monkeys (as opposed to apes) and are also studied for their prowess in economics.

Pockets is so incredibly cute you will die. He is also the happiest animal I have ever seen in my life, happier than my own cats. He is tiny and has a huge personality. There are many videos of him playing and also painting. His paintings go for about $300. Back in the day, Picasso had a painting by a chimp named Congo in his studio and Congo’s work later sold for $30K.

Pockets’s work generate some money which is spent 100 percent on the other monkeys at the sanctuary, none of whom are interested in painting so they do other things for fun.

I would love for you to be aware of him and see his work, because it will show you something about primate cognition. Also, since COVID, the sanctuary, run entirely by volunteers, has been closed entirely to outsiders so the funds generated by quarterly “open days” were not raised. A planned comedy night featuring professional comedians also had to be cancelled.

Another famous resident is the IKEA MONKEY who people heard of internationally when he was found in a shearling coat in the parking lot of a Toronto IKEA years ago. He was taken in by the sanctuary as a baby, and eventually was adopted by an older male baboon named Pierre, who also lives in the sanctuary. The IKEA monkey is named Darwin, by the way.

If any of you would like to buy a Pockets painting, they are carefully shipped around the world. Or if you could spare a few dollars for the sanctuary, which you can donate to on its website (Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary), I would be so grateful.

Perhaps you heard of Wall Street Bets and how they suddenly adopted dozens and dozens of gorillas online at Dian Fossey Foundation? That was such an unbelievable, joyful event that will be forever remembered in conservation history. The Foundation is so deeply grateful as its provides for its critically endangered animals.

I would be so grateful if any of you could help the monkeys who get literally zero government assistance. Only private donors pay for their food and veterinary work. The volunteers have mostly been in place for over a decade, and many of them do special sabbaticals which they pay for entirely themselves in places from Kenya to Malaysia to Costa Rica to volunteer with other primates in the wild. And most of the volunteers have full time day jobs to boot.

I am a donor myself, and I love these monkeys and volunteers.

Check out Pockets Warhol!

OP that is awful. Inbreeding animals to that degree is not cool.

R16. Thurston Waffles is incredibly cute and beautiful. Is he a Turkish Angora by any chance? The owner’s voice is really creepy though.

by Anonymousreply 1704/07/2021

I believe the owner of Thurston did a cat DNA test and found out he was a mix of breeds, R17.

The owner has always had a strange voice, he kind of exaggerates it these days. He sounds like a cartoon character.

Good grief, WTF is that thing?! If I saw that coming towards me, I would run like hell!
