Today on the sanctuary’s Facebook page, I asked fans which chimp of the Cle Elum Seven chimpanzees they were most drawn towards. A lot of people couldn’t chose among the seven, not surprisingly.
Some people were able to name names, however, and comments about what draws people to the chimps keep coming in, including this great comment from volunteer and friend of the Seven, Katie Patterson: “Missy has an energy and enthusiasm for life that is contagious, especially considering everything she has been through.”
Here are a couple of photos of Missy taken earlier this week that epitomize that energy:
It’s so great for the other six chimpanzees to have Missy as a role model for enthusiasm!
Thanks to Katie and everyone who has shared their thoughts about the chimps on our Facebook page this afternoon. Keep posting – it’s great to hear what you like about the chimps!
