A Moment Of Monkey Kitten Zen...

In the Ubud region of Bali, Indonesia comes a companionship straight out of children's books. Photographer Anne Young was vacationing at the Monkey Forest Park when she spotted a young male long-tailed macaque monkey that had adopted a ginger kitten, protectively caring for and grooming it while keeping other monkeys away. The kitten couldn't look happier, and neither could the monkey.

Apparently, like any celebrity out with their kids, the monkey didn't like Young getting too close or taking photos, even trying to cover the kitten with a leaf. The monkey likely knows it runs the risk of having its new companion taken away by either humans or the other 340 or so monkeys living in four groups in the reserve. Though the kitten itself seems incredibly content.

Full story here.
