We are still continuing our work rescuing unloved and abandoned monkeys from e-bay, (but to be honest not as vigorously as we have done in the past), but this is Arfur.
We decided not to offer Arfur up for “official” adoption because we knew immediately that he would be ideal to go and live with Granny G and Uncle Stephen as he has been gymnastically trained …..
……. and would very much enjoy the rough and tumble life that living with Uncle Stephen would bring.
Arfur is also very fond of puppies and dogs, his book of choice being Spot the Dog and has seen Lassie Come Home hundreds of times (despite it being in black and white). His hoodie and shoes reflect his interest, but he realises that a puppy of his own is just too much responsibility (especially at Christmas)
We all posed together for photographs before Arfur left for his new life in Bilston ….
…. but we shall see him every Thursday when we go over for tea with Auntie Jan.
So it is only really ciao for now and not time for tears and long goodbyes.
