Smartie, Foster Mum’s spider monkey kitten has been adopted since 19 Sep 09. She is now the younger by 5 months, with an older ginger brother who’s 7 months old. She has oodles of energy and even her elder brother is having a bit of a struggle keeping up with her.
Her mother is expecting to add a biped baby to the mix pretty soon. With each other for company and the adaptability of kittens, she and her brother should take the new addition well, especially with a bit of prepping by her mother.
Here are the photos and vids of her farewell wrestle with btmao and the incredible plastic insect monster
