When Wesley T. Monkey was first born, he earned his surname for his general mischievous behavior and love of climbing his way into trouble. Now that years have passed, his distinct personality and fearlessness have made him a beloved resident of the Indraloka Animal Sanctuary in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania. It's a love Wesley returns to his fellow animals on a daily basis, best exemplified by when he recently was observed comforting one of his friends, Penny the cow, in her dying days.
According to the sanctuary's founder, Indra Lahiri, Wesley stayed with Penny the cow for many hours, purring at her side and "massaging" her with his paws until Penny's last breath. Truly, Wesley comforted his bovine friend when she needed it most.
Indraloka Animal Sanctuary is a kind of retirement home for area farm animals that have nowhere else to go. Wesley is one of about 100 cats living who are currently living there, along with a gaggle of geese and numerous pigs, cows, goats and other animals—but he is, by far, the one with the biggest personality.
"All the other animals love him," said Lahiri of Wesley and his outsize personality. "He's really just very popular."
And what does the "T" in Wesley T. Monkey stand for?
