Baboon update - September baboon

Only one baboon left Baboon HQ in September.  We had holidays and also there weren't many baboons around looking for homes over the summer.  However, we did get a kind volunteer to rehome a baboon and there was a little chap available.  So off he went to live with @BerniceBluJae, where I think he will have an exciting life.

Cheeks took a bit of time arriving, some baboons do like to have a look around on their journeys.  But eventually he did and he took the opportunity to sit down and rest straight away after his exertions.

After a bit of a rest he started exploring and meeting his new family.  Of course he wanted a cuddle with Bernice first.

He started to meet the other members of the household.  He was a bit surprised with come across a pink Happpiii but he took it in his stride!

He met the largest member of the household who guards their front door, he is very gentle but he is biggggg, he is known as The Elevator.

Wow that is a big anipal but Cheeks doesn't look at all scared.

Cheeks was keen to find out about pineapple growing and Bernice was able to show him their pineapples.

I wonder how long it will take him to suggest they start growing bananas.  If I was a betting baboon my money would be on about 5 minutes.  What fantastic pineapples.

Well there was a big surprise in store for Cheeks, he is not the only baboon in the house.

Just look at this baboon, Kirby.  Does he remind you of anyone?  I can only guess we are related.  Of course Cheeks is well used to baboons who look like this, HQ is full of them!!  It was a surprise to me to see him I can tell you, I expect he is a young cousin who is lucky enough to be resident in California!

Well I can see that Cheeks will be happy in his new home and I think Bernice and her family are very happy to have him there, so we wish them all well.

Thank you for reading my blog.
