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.
