Chimpu: Monkeying Around with Unconventional Joy


People mostly keep cats, dogs, fishes and birds as pets. These are all adorable however none can beat the charm of the pet I have. I have a monkey as a pet. Its name is Chimpu. Many people find it weird and are even scared of coming to our house because of it. But I totally adore it.

How I convinced my Family to Pet a Monkey?

I always loved monkeys and wanted to pet one. I often saw these as pets in the movies. However, I had never met anyone in real life who had a monkey for a pet. When I expressed my wish to pet a monkey my parents laughed at the thought and dismissed it stating it was a vague demand. However, I soon convinced them and brought an infant monkey to my place. It was just adorable as a baby and my parents became as fond of it as me.

Taking Care of My Pet Monkey

Since no body we knew had a pet monkey and we had no clue about how to take care of it, we called for professional help. Initially, a monkey trainer visited our place every week to train Chimpu to adapt to our ways. It also instructed us on how to take care of our pet. We soon understood how monkeys behaved. We learned the ways to keep them calm and the things that infuriated them. He also told us how to ensure its cleanliness and what and how to feed it. We started taking care of Chimpu in exactly the same way.


Chimpu is very warm and friendly. It has been with us since it was an infant and is thus extremely attached to us. It also loves having guests at home. It enjoys when we have get together at home. It is super fun to be around Chimpu.
