happy birthday Cheeta!

Cheeta turned 74 today and is the world's oldest living primate (he's a chimpanzee).

Cheeta acted in 17 Tarzan films from the 1930s. He liked Johnny Weismuller, and Ron Ely (who both played Tarzan), but not Maureen O'Sullivan (who played Jane).

Cheeta was born in Liberia in Africa and was brought to the USA when he was only a few months old, by animal trainer Tony Gentry.

In retirement, Cheeta watches his own old movies and paints (his "apestracts" were exhibited at London's National Gallery in 1996).

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


After all the excitement of yesterday, today was much quieter. I spent a lot of time on the couch with my human and we even had an afternoon nap together.

I even had some roasted monkfish for dinner (okay, it was treat, after my usual raw chicken wing). Mind you, my human had to look up one of Rick Stein's cookbooks to find out how to prepare it (skinned and filleted).

It's been a great day!
