In a heartwarming story of love and compassion, a baby monkey has been rescued and is now eagerly waiting to meet his new parents. The tiny primate, who has been through a ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀᴛɪᴄ experience, is finally getting the chance to start a new life filled with happiness and care.
When the RSPCA was called to check on a situation where a monkey was being kept as a pet in Essex, England, they were heartbroken when they met tiny baby TikTok. TikTok lived alone in a birdcage and was too young to be away from his parents. He wasn’t getting the proper care he needed — because monkeys shouldn’t be kept as pets.
“Primates are intelligent, sentient, and highly social animals with complex needs that simply cannot be met in a birdcage environment,” Jack Taylor, an inspector with the RSPCA, said in a press release.
Luckily, the RSPCA obtained an agreement to have TikTok signed into their care. After searching for the perfect forever home for him, he was soon taken in by Monkey World, a rescue where he could get all the care he truly needed.
The director of Monkey World, Alison Cronin, drove up to the RSPCA to collect TikTok and was excited to bring him to his new home and introduce him to his new family.
The rescue introduced little TikTok to Clydie and Ronnie, who they hoped would be his adoptive parents. Clydie and Ronnie were also rescued from not-so-great situations, so they understood what tiny TikTok had gone through. As soon as TikTok saw his new mom, he cried out to her, then jumped onto her back. Clydie immediately started doting on him and was so happy to be able to care for her new baby.
“Clydie instantly adopted him as her own, carrying, grooming, and protecting little TikTok,” Monkey World wrote in a press release.
After examining him, the rescue learned that TikTok was around 5 or 6 months old and weighed only 0.2 pounds. He had desperately needed the care that only parents could provide, and now he finally has that again. Clydie and Ronnie are so excited about their new son, TikTok, and the sweet little family of three is the cutest thing you’ll ever see.
TikTok and his new family are a great example of why monkeys should not be sold as pets. Both the RSPCA and Monkey World are working hard to try and end that practice.
“Tiktok’s case perfectly highlights why primates should not be available to the public and why they do not belong in people’s homes,” Taylor said. “This youngster has been wrenched away from his family to be sold as a novelty pet to someone who doesn’t know and who hasn’t got a hope of being able to give him what he needs. It’s a situation that shouldn’t happen.”
Thankfully, TikTok now has the best new life in a place where he’ll always be safe with parents who truly love him.
The caretakers watched with tears as the baby monkey was handed over to his new parents. They knew that the tiny primate had been through a lot, but seeing him so happy and excited to meet his new family was worth all the effort. The story of the rescued baby monkey is a testament to the power of love and compassion. Despite his ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀ, the tiny primate found happiness and a new family who would give him the life he deserved. It’s a reminder that we all have the power to make a positive difference in the world, one small act of kindness at a time.
