Default Monkeys and quilts

I just had to share this with you...On a recent visit to the Oregon Zoo we saw a monkey with a beautiful small quilt in his cage. He was fussing with it, maybe thinking about taking a nap or making a nest to lay in. He seemed to be quite happy to have a quilt in his cage with him. I guess the basic comfort of a quilt is universal!!

He might be an undercover quilt police. See how he's examining the quilt? LOL

He might like quilts but my guess is that he loves groceries even more. He's HUGE !!! Thank you for sharing, it's very cute.

That's the fattest monkey I've ever seen, or maybe pregnant? Following her nesting instinct, perhaps. I wonder if she snatched the quilt from a passing baby stroller. Thanks for sharing the cute picture.

Cute photo. The monkey sure is studying the quilt. Looks like it is trying to figure out how to make one.

Very unique picture. Just goes to show you that everyone needs a quilt. I wonder who put the quilt in its cage?
