Monkey Monday | Mrs. Tibbs Loves Monkeys More Than I Do

Connie Tibbs of Pekin, Illinois has a husband, three teenagers, and five macaques.

Mrs Tibbs, who runs a pet shop on the family farm, gives the macaques a weekly bath, changes their diapers in the kitchen, and dresses them up in tiny outfits. She said: "The day starts with Honey Nut loops, fruit and milk and then they wait in turn to be individually put on my lap to have their diaper changed. They sleep in little hammocks in a five feet by 10 feet cage at night and after their breakfast and change they are allowed out into the house." She even takes one of the monkeys to bed with her every night - dressed in its own pajamas.
