Today is National Siblings Day! A day in which we honor our siblings! So today we are going to celebrate the siblings who who live here at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest!
The siblings here are Honey B, Cy, Lucky, and Rayne, as well as Gordo and Dora!
Cy and Lucky share the same mother and father, Sally and Herbie (respectively).
It is almost apparent they are full siblings since they look very identical to each other:
Along with being full siblings, Cy and Lucky are also related to Rayne and Honey B. They all share the same father: Herbie.
Cy, Rayne, and Lucky:
At certain angles and in the right lighting, you can somewhat see the resemblance between them all. As we know, Honey B’s mother is Missy, and Rayne’s mother was named Thelma.
The other half sibling pair who reside here are Gordo and Dora:
Both of them have the same father: Les. Gordo’s mother was named Andrea and Dora’s mother was Stella. Though these two do not share many physical traits, this pair love to play with each other and be around each other.
We wish all the siblings out there a Happy Siblings Day!
As a bonus, attached to this blog are sounds from around the sanctuary. These sounds can be heard on any given day. On the days I am not in the Chimp House, I miss them dearly. It’s almost like an autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) to me. That is when a stimuli (sound or visual) triggers the brain to produce low-grade euphoria, or good feeling. It’s why some of us get goosebumps when we hear a particular song that is associated to happy event, or when we see an old photo of good times. To me it’s currently the sounds of the Chimp House.
I hope you enjoy.
And one final bonus photo of Lucky!

That was fun! How many times a day does the call/response between the neighbors happen?

we can’t read their minds…but we can sure infer a ton from their noisy interactions…….
Well that was a treat! From the quiet glow of my laptop I forget to consider the sounds and smells and all the sensations that must be taking place minute by minute all around the sanctuary. All of it, music to my ears. Thanks much Chad!
I have always thought Cy and Lucky look so much alike. Their sibling resemblance is very obvious. In these photos it’s amazing how similar Cy, Lucky, Ryane, and Honey B look! Something in the mouth and of course, the white bearded chins.
Happy National Siblings Day!
What a fun compilation of sounds and pictures! Thank you, it was very enjoyable.
Now I hold all of the caregivers in even higher esteem than I did before! Because I have the complete opposite of ASMR
All of you are so amazing!
