The Ikea Monkey – So Cute! I Can’t Get Enough Of Looking At His Pictures

Hello, I know I am super late by a week and a half with this story because I had done my recipes week the same time as when this story came about, but I am sure a lot of us have heard about the IKEA Monkey that was roaming in the Toronto Store, and how it managed to get himself out of his owners cage, car and get out to wander around the parking lot and almost managed to get inside the building when passerby’s saw the monkey with his cute little shearling coat. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I still cannot stop looking at his photos, and now its become a big internet sensation with people making memes, comics, and all sorts of things. A lot of talk show hosts are also talking about the IKEA Monkey, it made the international headline news, and it was basically what people were talking about for a week. Now probably it is still trending on twitter. Not even an hour into finding out about the monkey it was all over the internet. Now we learned of his name and he is called Darwin.

Darwin was taken away from his owner and that really is something not good. Now the owner is fighting to get her Monkey back and he is now in a sanctuary at a Story Book Farm. The police and animal services took him away. I just feel that he should go back to his owner who took care of him well until that day in IKEA where she went inside to shop and all of a sudden everyone sees this Monkey. I got to say it is adorable, and that coat is so lovely and stylish. Now I am sure a lot of people want a coat just like the monkey and I heard already that it will be 2013’s popular Costume for Halloween. I definitely want the same coat. Too cute! The way he was cozy and wearing a diaper. Just the cutest little thing. I saw a lot of twitter status messages how people want Darwin for Christmas, how they want to give up what they want just so they can have Darwin. This made a big impact on the advertising of IKEA too. Especially that special one in Toronto, where people will always remember the IKEA Monkey being in that store. I was so intrigued by the story, that I went to IKEA The very next day to look around and shop too. I said I hope we can find the IKEA Monkey, but too late. It was already sent to the sanctuary which I find to be very wrong. He should be with the person who raised him and who took care of him. There is this video and pictures of the IKEA monkey that is brushing his teeth with the owner. so cute!

I really hope the owner gets her Monkey back. She deserves to have him back. A lot of people want him back with his owner. Lets hope it happens.

    I’m afraid I have to disagree with you on this one Talin. Not only does Darwin – to me at least – look incredibly unhappy but the “humanisation” of any animal is unnatural and wrong.

    Also, the keeping of such an exotic pet is illegal in Toronto, according to all reports I’ve seen and heard. His owner – a real estate lawyer – obviously knows this as she won’t reveal how she got him or who she got him from. In breaking the law through ownership of such a pet she could be in a lot of trouble with the law herself.

    Darwin needs to be with other monkeys. Unfortunately, he will now never live a normal life and will spend his life in a sanctuary or zoo for his own safety, and that saddens me to no end.

    I agree he needs to be with his owner. He is probably bonded with her, and misses her as much as she misses him. Give him back!!
