Bonding with a Special Animal

Written by Anonymous on July 25, 2011

I’m missing my pet orangutan, Jesse.

He was the cutest thing to ever walk the earth. I only was around him for about five minutes a day, but the bond was special when I went to visit him at the local zoo.

I’m telling you, he was closer to me than any human could have ever been. He didn’t even have to speak–the way he gazed lovingly into my eyes was enough for me.

After about seven months of going to and from the zoo, Jesse was taken away to live in another zoo.

I haven’t seen or heard about him since.

I cry myself to sleep each night just thinking about his fuzzy fur and his bright eyes.

He smiled at me once, and I break into tears, as I am now, just recalling the memory. It’s a vivid one.

Oh, I hope my Jesse is in good hands.

If I could only have five more minutes with him, at least, to say goodbye, I would be happy.

DON’T TAKE PET ORANGUTANS FOR GRANTED YOU MINGING MINGERS! I LOVE JESSE <3
