Ok, so this is the little orphan Beth and I have been looking after for the last three days. Cute huh? Dale and Janet Horst (and their four boys) bought this little squirrel monkey about three weeks ago from somebody who was trying to sell him. They named him "Tarz", and this week they are away for a few days, so we have become his foster home for the time being.
Craziness. I always wondered what it would be like to have a monkey? :) And I still think they should have named him George.
We have decided that the makeshift diaper is a great remedy for his monkeyness while he is in our house. :) He pees all the time.
Yesterday and today he spent most of the day outside climbing in our little fig tree (diaper-free) and eating bugs, raisins, peanuts, and bread. Poor little guy...I sent a couple of our school kids out hunting for grass-hoppers and other little bugs for him to eat. He's pretty easy to love.
