It's time for Willow the 2-week-old Capuchin to take her first bath. At first she seems a bit nervous to the new experience, but eventually she takes it all in. Adorable!

      This is stupid. A monkey doesn't need to smell good with harsh chemical shampoo. Baby shampoo and baking soda will work quite nicely. Sheesh...

        How would you know she didn't use baby shampoo? The bottle we all saw her use looks suspiciously like this one, wouldn't you say: https://www.google.com/search?q=johnson%27s+baby+shampoo&client=tablet-android-verizon&prmd=sinv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiNkOWm_rHSAhUkHGMKHQ17BaEQ_AUICCgC&biw=1280&bih=800&dpr=2#imgrc=T5Qs1rWdArbVaM:

      you need to make sure that the bathroom is closed and warm so that they don't get cold

          Are you suggesting you know her bathroom wasn't warm? Or are you just making sure everyone knows how smart you are?

      This is abusive ....maybe due to ignorance, but if she wanted to clean the monkey she could have used a washcloth and rubbed it on the baby , rather than immerse a poor young creature, who by nature is afraid of water, and make it stay in that cold water for a number of minutes. Why don't these self indulgent people who have a need to have a wild pet ask some questions and do some reading ? These are not children. You need to respect their own nature. Next time just use a wash cloth and don't use so much soap. This was hard to watch.

        "Cold water?" How would you know whether the water was cold? Considering the gentleness of the woman, I'd guess she was quite mindful of the water's temperature. Perhaps you should stick to butting into things about which you actually know something.

        Also, how do you know she is "self-indulgent" and "needs to have a wild pet?" How do you know she isn't a foster parent, caring for an orphaned baby on behalf of an animal rescue organization? Did that ever occur to you? Of course not, because you're the type of clucking hen who much prefers to think the worst of everybody to make yourself feel superior, aren't you? What evidence do you have that the lady hasn't asked "some questions" or done "some reading?" Oh, you have no evidence? You just made that up? Wow, I bet you have no friends, no talents, and your family can't stand to be around you, which is why you spend your lonely days and nights sitting on your unusually wide, fat as$ feeding your addiction to Facebook and other useless internet garbage. See how I did that? I made assumptions about you based on almost no evidence. But I bet I'm right.

      Why is she even bathing a 2 week old baby? They don't get bathed in the wild at 2 weeks.

        Why did your mother wrap your newborn butt in diapers, feed you formula out of a bottle, dress you in cute little outfits, wrap you in warm, fuzzy blankets, place you in a crib to sleep, bathe you, cover you with baby lotion or baby powder, take you to the doctor and/or give you medicine when you were sick? Why did she go to a hospital to deliver you, with the assistance of medical experts? Why were you driven home in an automobile, to a house with plumbing, electricity, heat and clean running water on demand? After all, none of these things were available to humans in their natural state in the "wild." I haven't been exposed to as much ignorance as is in these comments since the last time I heard Donald Trump's voice.

          And I'm sick of you! You think you know everything... here's a bulletin. YOU DON"T and obviously you CARE NOTHING for animals. Get off my planet.

            Fascinating comment. Earth is YOUR planet? The rest of humanity are simply your guests? When did you acquire this vast piece of real estate, and how much did you pay? Where would you prefer me and, presumably, all other humans who dare to disagree with you or call you on your stunning ignorance, to live if not on YOUR planet? Does it matter to you that there are no other planets in our solar system -- or within many light years away, for that matter -- that can sustain human life? Or are you so callous as to be utterly unconcerned about the welfare of other humans? If technology permitted travel and human settlement of distant planets, would you be willing to pay the costs? A few hundred billion dollars should easily be within your budget, considering your vast real estate holdings. All you would need to do is sell a small country or two to a Russian oligarch. You would still own 99% of the planet, so the impact to your net worth would be negligible. Anyway, have your people call my people and we'll do lunch to discuss it further. In the meantime, let's work on getting the sand out of your vagin@. It seems to be making you very grumpy, like an old lady with nothing to do.

            You do realize, don't you, that cats and dogs did not evolve to live in human homes, sleep in human beds, eat manufactured food out of bags and cans, or receive medical attention from veterinarians? You also realize, do you not, that in nature fish do not live in aquariums and parakeets do their best to avoid bird cages, right? And that in nature, deer are not struck and killed by automobiles or beer-swilling hunters pretending to be macho by murdering animals with guns, right? Yet I bet you're married to one of those men and I'd put money on the fact you own at least one cat and one dog and you force both to sleep in your bed, and you defy nature every time you take them to the vet. You're an ignorant hypocrite. Leave the monkey lady alone. She's probably done more good rescuing that orphaned little monkey than you will do in your entire miserable, petty, meaningless, life. You're just a lonely, bitter, wide-as*ed clucking hen. Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck. Now go eat yourself a Moonpie and turn on your beloved Fox News.

      Cute except for the fact these poor babies are ripped from their momma's arms at birth. Can you imagine giving birth, having the baby taken away, then dealing with all the physical discomforts of birth, lactation, depression, etc., and not even have your baby? These animals care for their young for YEARS! And God only knows what the "kennel" where the breeders are kept looks like. Could be like a puppy mill and probably is for the majority of these babies.
