Awwww, Monkey

Here are a bunch of cute Monkey pictures.

Here she is being a super model with a ribbon around her neck.

Here she is next to a glass of champagne on New Year's Eve.

Here she is as a tiny kitten. Look at those ears!

Here she is when she got a stick in her eye. Notice her swollen right eye. All her stuffed friends gathered round to offer sympathy.

Funny story. When the husband and Monkey and Major first moved in with me when I lived in Austin, Monkey stayed in for about a week. This was rather unusual because even though she was about 1 year old, she was already quite adventurous and loved being outside. But then again this was a new neighborhood and it was East Austin. When she finally went out, she stayed out all night. When she came back the next morning, we noticed her right eye was swollen. We figured she had gotten stung by a bee. The next morning it was still swollen so we took her to the vet. On first inspection, the vet too thought she had been stung by a bee and took her into the back area to get a bee sting treatment of some sort. A minute later they came back out and it turns out she had gotten a stick stuck between her eyeball and eyelid. The stick was about 1/2 inch long by 1/8 inch in diameter. Who knows what she did to get that stick in her eye. Fortunately her eyeball wasn't scratched and she fully recovered from the trauma.
