Kellie Pickler Monkeys Around

Kellie Pickler has adopted quite a strange pet — a monkey! The 22-year-old American Idol alum just wrote a blog entry titled “Monkey See…Monkey Do”:

“The ‘Pickler Family’ has gotten bigger….(and no I didn’t have a kid)…I adopted a Marmoset Monkey! She is the cutest little thing. She is so tiny, only weighs 3 ounces right now. I’m not sure exactly what I am going to name her….so maybe you guys can help me out. I’ll post a picture of her and you guys can comment on what you think I should name her….she is so sweet and she has the best personality. I absolutely love her!!!….and I love you guys too….xoxo pickler :)”

WHAT DO YOU THINK Kellie would name her monkey???

Love Kelly. She is the most refreshing simple girl ever!

Had she done any research she would know that they don’t make good pets. But maybe she needs to experience that little monkey gnarling at her face to figure it out. At least it will give her a bit of character…

That’s awful. How did she get the baby monkey? There is a big problem with poachers killing mother monkeys in order to sell the babies all over the world. “Adopting” or owning a monkey or any wild animal as a pet should not be condoned or publicized, no matter how she got it.

Thats what I thought. Monkeys are not pets.
But, right now its cute. kinda like the baby rattlesnake.
How about Grumpy? It doesn’t look happy in that shot.

does this stupid idiot realize they rip these little monkeys from their mothers?!?
shame on her.
moron

# 7

Sorry she has a python not a rattlesnake. but thats how the saying goes. you get the idea

# 8

Wonder if she did research this? I mean, I thought she went all Carrie U. on us and is a faux-fur wearing veg country star.
Name her Tootoo (Like Jordin). started out cute and then got nasty.

Is it legal? :S

name her Boogie !

she’s about to piss off a looooot of people.
i’ll start with PETA

yikes, bad idea. i saw a documentary on adopting monkeys a few months ago, its truly a sad sad story. i hope she did her research and knows whats ahead of her

Here are some names i think are cute:

Mango
Bananas
Peaches ( haha i love fruit names for animals)
Dolce
Lucy Lui
Evana

awwww soooo cute!!

Some people go back to their youth, folks!!

Kellie Pickler has just lost my respect. She is lying when she says she adopted this exotic animal-she bought it for big bucks. You can’t just “adopt” a monkey. Secondly, it’s incredibly cruel to take this intelligent, needy baby away from its mother, who will suffer without it. Why not adopt a dog or cat, and sho you have a heart, Kelly?

“That’s awful. How did she get the baby monkey? There is a big problem with poachers killing mother monkeys in order to sell the babies all over the world. “Adopting” or owning a monkey or any wild animal as a pet should not be condoned or publicized, no matter how she got it.”

I’m concerned about that too, if she got it through a wildlife rehabilitation center to foster for a while then that is fine, but otherwise that is not adopting, that is piracy and it’s really unethical because the DO kill the moms to get the babies.

How ignorant is she? It is very suspicious – the adopting – but does she have any idea how incredibly time consuming monkeys are? They are intelligent animals and need a lot of attention and time and should not be caged in small cage. When bored they can be very very destructive. Ms. Pickler should have read up on this before she subjected this poor thing to her lifestyle-she is far too busy to devote the time needed to this baby and especially as it grows!

I knew Pickler wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but I didn’t know she was heartless too. Monkeys need a LOT of time and attention from their owners, and she will be in for a wakeup call when she finds out that they poo and pee everywhere, plus rub their musky butts all over the house to leave their scent. It will serve her right if it musks up her house!

what a freak. does she not realise that she is facilitating the black trade of animals? When you buy one animal, it leaves a spot to be taken by another animal, leading to poachers killing mother animals and taking away their babies. She will be taught a lesson when that monkey grows up and it scratches off her scraggy face.

How can she take a wild animal. It’s illegal in France! Isn’t it in USA?

I think this is cruel.

marmosets live in large family groups and this twit has contributed to the wild animal pet trade and should be strung up.

How on earth was she able to adopt a monkey? Isn’t that sorta illegal? Poor little baby was taken from her mama. But anyhow, if she’s looking for a name for the little one, name it MIMI !!!!

Why the hell does she have a monkey?!!! I agree I think that is very cruel and inhumane isn’t it 2009? Very sad…
