Monkey Business

Monkeys are cool! I have decided to learn more things about monkeys in case I ever get to have a pet monkey of my very own. Here I am learning that monkeys have funny fingers.
This is a very old picture my Mommie has, because she collects weird monkey stuff. It is a card made for viewing with a stereoscope. I am glad I found this, because I can learn lots of things about monkeys. Like, for instance, they enjoy playing musical instruments! Let's study this picture: (you can click on it to see it bigger if you like)
Here is what it says on the back of the image:


Now, let's see if we can answer some of the questions! Let's do it together. Here goes:
  1. Do you think the monkey close to the stage at the left is planning some mischief? I believe the answer is YES.
  2. Can you name all the instruments? The correct answer to this question is NO.
  3. What is the monkey with the stick doing? Trying to poke the other monkeys.
  4. Why does he sit at one side and face the players? He cannot poke them with the stick unless he is facing them.
  5. Do you think the very little monkey in the very tiny chair will play his instrument well? He is trying his best, but he is not very good.
I am sorry that I do not have an answer sheet. But I think we passed with a good grade.

67 Notes for Daisy:

Furkidsmom said...

Yeah we're first!!!!!

We don't know much about monkeys either, so we're glad you're learning in case we ever have a question. We're not sure we want a Monkey for a pet though. sTony might be jealous if you got one.

Poppy Q said...

Wow you girls sure know lots about monkeys. I do hope you get one as a bet this year, than would be a whole lot of fun.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

We could not name all the instruments either, so we believe the correct answer is NO, too. We could ask our Grampy if you want, he would know them all.

We also can not name any of the monkeys, but we can name all of the Monkees.

i beati said...

Do you have any toy monkeys?? because I got a sock monkey for Christmas and I put him on my tree. Sandy

Kaz's Cats said...

Wow, those monkeys look pretty clever, playing all of those instruments. We didn't recognise them all either. You know, Mum says that there was a famous gorilla called KoKo who had a kitten as a pet - there's a film about her too. We think that it'd be great for a cat to have a pet monkey, since a gorilla might be a bit big.

Parker said...

Mommy thinks that monkeys are probably hard to have in a house 'cause they like to get into trouble.
(Mommy is a little scared of Monkeys, and if they have a clown suit on...YIKES!)

Isis said...

Gosh I'd never seen a monkey before, I prefer the animal programs with other cats in them or better yet with mice and birdies in them and squirrels too! ;)

I have learnt a lot from reading about them here Daisy and shall look out for them in the garden now! :)

Purrs,
Isis

Eric and Flynn said...

We have learnt a lot about monkeys now Daisy, thank you. Mum said there used to be chimpanzees on the TV having a tea party.

michico*Adan said...

Michico was born at Monkey year,
well you know, in Chinese tradition, 1980 is monkey year, and every 12 years, it will repeat again.
But she doesn't adore monkey at much, so she always feels very surprise to know these, thanks for let us know~~

Those are very special collected~!

The Creek Cats said...

It would be very cool to have your very own pet monkey, Daisy!

Casbah Kitten said...

You sure do know a lot about monkeys Daisy. And your mom has some really cool stuffs. Do you think Santa would bring you a monkey next Christmas if you asked him? Why don't you dress Harley up like a monkey so you can practice owning a monkey?? I think that would be fun.

Skeezix the Cat said...

Sumtimes, the FL and Mr TF call me a little munkey. Yoo can study me all yoo wunt!

Keisha said...

Monkey orchestra! I would love to see that.

Sarge Charlie said...

Let me see, I think "Monkey Business" ended a presidential campaign. How many cats did I confuse with that statement.

Hannah Fanna said...

Have you seen the Wizard of Oz? That movie has flying monkeys.

Cory said...

The flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz scare me! I think I wouldn't want a realy monkey in the house, just one of the monkey dog toys that Grete can chew on is enough for me.

bikudesigns said...

Love this blog. Daisy is really cute!

Alasandra said...

We thinks we got an A+. Thank you for teaching us about monkeys, with Mommy you never know what might come see us.

A doggie came to visit a few days ago. ~Socks, Scylla & Charybdis

The Island Cats said...

Daisy...we think monkeys are funny looking...but we don't know much about them...thanks for the monkey lesson!

Sweet Praline said...

I guess monkeys are different than people and what they do is different. My mommy says the man with the stick is the director and he uses the stick to keep the beat of the music. I bet there are a bunch of directors that would prefer poking the musicians! Hee! Hee!

Junior said...

Those monkeys sure are funny!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

It's interesting how the writing on the back of the stereo view reads like an elementary school lesson!

Maureen said...

Cool item! Sometimes my little felines get called monkeys... when they act up.

That's as close as I'll get to owning one!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow! A monkey for a pet would be very cool. What a lucky cat you are Daisy!

Mo said...

That little monkey in the middle is kinda SCARY, don't ya think?
Sorta what I pictured Mrs. Shrill to look like.... just saying.

Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

Monkey was my mom's nikhkname when she was just a wee one.

She akhtually thought it was her name and gave THAT to the person in the department store that found her when she wandered off...imagine hearing 'would the parents of Monkey.....'

Black Cat said...

I'm with Parker's Mom!

I've just read back a bit coz I'm behind (again) and seen the sad news about Icon Baxter Bentley. I can't believe it! I'm off to pay my respects. Yet another sad loss:-( xxx

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

We think monkeys are fun...we watched some on t.v. yesserday and dey were playing tag in a tree, which is fun. We did not see any playing musical instruments. And like Gandalf and Grayson our mommy could not name all da musical instruments and din't know da monkeys but can name all da Monkees and what instruments dey played. She also sed something about Beatles and a whole fambly of partridges.

Lidian said...

Those are definitely the right answers! And that is a great picture card. You sure know enough about monkeys to get one, we hope you do!

China Cat said...

I liked looking at your weird monkey picture but my Lap Lady is kind of afraid of monkeys. Like Parker said it would be a really scary monkey in a clown suit!

Purrrrrrs, China Cat

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Momma finally found some time when bloglines didn't take forever (just 10 minutes and three tries) to export her file so she could put everyone in google. OH MY! Daisy that is so much nicer! I can't believe you didn't tell us! It's so much easier to not HAVE to read everyone or they get lost and we can just say we've read who we want and stuff. Oh nice nice nice!!!

AB clan said...

Eduardo said...

Good job Daisy! Your such a smart girl! My Grandma used to have a Monkey as a pet & he was very mean to everyone but her(& he did fling his poo)! He was like a little hairy person, but for some reason he didn't want anyone to touch him but Grandma & so everyone got bit a lot. They gave him away while Grandma was at school.

Luzinha said...

a monkey! so cool! I think that the monkeys are very clever! and cute too! ask your mom give you a monkey on your birthday! and the names of the instruments I don't know either! pitty!

kisses for you all!

Angus Mhor said...

The only thing I've heard about monkeys, besides the fact that they are very mischievous, is that they throw their POO!
I think that is a little bit yucky.

Actually, I think that is a LOT yucky!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

That was fun Daisy! My mommy is scared of monkeys so I know I'll never get one for a pet.

The video of Pixie below is so sweet. We remember that. We're sure she and Icon are together snuggling in warm grass.

JD at I Do Things said...

Wow, monkeys really ARE cool. I liked that picture very much. And I think you did very well answering all those questions. You know a lot more about monkeys than I do.

I don't think you need a pet monkey daisy. They are even more mischievous than Mr Shrill!

Miss Daisy even if you was wrong you would pass! But I think you answers are very good!

Mommy likes a monkey too, I think they would make a nice pet for you Daisy.

Fred said...

Being the teacher, I do have the answer sheet, and you done good!

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Daisy, it is just SOOO funny you had monkeys on your post today, because our Momma was going through some of our old posts earlier, and saw the picture of her chocolate Easter monkey! The first thing she thought was "Daisy's Mommie really likes monkeys", isn't that quite a coincidence? And that is a really cool old monkey picture that your Mommie has, they are all so cute with their instruments!
Purrs and headbutts to you and Harley,

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You sure do know a lot about monkeys, Daisy. We're glad we got to take the test with you. If we'd had to take it on our own, we would likely have flunked.

Camie's Kitties said...

It looks like you did a great job answering all of the questions. We like monkeys too. We think a monkey would be a good pet for you to get.
