Monkey Bunkey



Monkey really, really loves boxes of all sorts, but his favorites are soda boxes.  He likes to crawl in so that his front is sticking out one end and his back is sticking out the other end.  In the second picture you can see how Monkey got his name.  When he was first adopted he did the usual kitten tearing around the house like his tail was on fire and getting into mischief, then he began to climb and he has been climbing ever since.  I feel I should give a word of caution about clicking on the link.  Monkey has been blogging for well over a year and it is all on one page.  Opera estimated the amount of material at 1.4GB before choking and failing to respond any further.  Monkey's coloration is very much like a Russian Blue and he may very well have a great deal of Russian Blue in him, as both of his kitty parents are unknown.  A nice lady found four five-week-old motherless kittens and took them to a no-kill shelter.  Monkey was adopted into his forever home two weeks later.  I am happy to report that all three of his brothers were also adopted.  Monkey shares his home with his Mom and Dad, his sister Cooper, five turtles and other assorted denizens of an aquarium.  They all live in an apartment building in California.  There is a really nice balcony and Monkey's Mom and Dad have built a kitty enclosure for Monkey and Cooper where they can hang out and watch the birds.  Both of them enjoy it very much.  They also get to go outside in their stroller.  Monkey enjoys playing with catnip mice, straws, paper and boxes, but his favorite toy is his younger sister, Cooper.  One of his favorite games is to wait at one end of their tunnel and watch for Cooper.  When she appears at the other end of the tunnel, he will zoom through the tunnel and pounce her.  I forgot to mention that Junior asked me to do this limerick for Monkey.

                                 Monkey Bunkey in a box!
                                 Monkey Bunkey really rocks!
                                         He climbs way up high
                                         Almost up to the sky.
                                 Then down he comes with Cooper to box.

We weren't trying to be rude, but we dropped over there and suggested the next time Monkey climbs that shelf, he take some of his posts with him and file them up there. That is a sloooooooooow loading page and it was hard to leave a comment.

We're glad you told us about Monkey, though. We'd like to go back and read his blog someday when we have more time.

Loved your limerick.

OMCATNIP! Kittylimericks rocks! Thank you so much. Wowzas!! Junior, you are too cool for even thinking of me.

Thanks to everykitty for the comments and compliments. I will try to work on my blog and somehow archive stuff. I just don't do that 'cuz whenever i go to other bloggies, and go to the archives, that's when it takes a long time on my laptop!! I'll figure something out!

I'm so excited about the Monkey Limerick. How did you do that? It was very clever and cute!

btw, this blog of yours is the mostest!

Take it easy, kitties. Luv, your monkey

Hi Karen Jo, It's just us catching up again. We've been to visit Monkey's blog, and we do think that you've captured him nicely in your limerick. He looks like he's up so high in that photo,
