A lemur who knows just what he wants

1 minute read

Lemurs are a type of primate found on Madagascar, an island about 250 miles off the southeastern coast of Africa. The smallest lemurs can fit into the palm of your hand, and weigh about an ounce. Lemurs are extremely social, as you can see in the one-minute video.

In the video you can see why having a lemur as a pet is probably not a good idea.

“And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof.” (Genesis 2:19)

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:20a)


Dear Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth. The heavens and earth declare your glory. Thank you that everything you do is exceedingly good. Thank you for the lemur, and for all your wonderful creatures. Through Jesus’ name by whom all things were made that were made, Amen.

That is so cute. I have a poor pathetic little white kitty who sadly lost his right hind leg to an animal attack (his foot was dislocated off his right hind leg and the vet amputated), there are times he gets so itchy on that side of his neck and head that he comes to me begging to be scratched (when I ask him if hes itchy he meows even louder). I know I have been successful in alleviating the itch when he starts purring, other times he swipes at me with his front paw as if to say to I missed it. He is so funny and so pathetic, but I love him lots.

The love we are able to experience with our animals is a great gift from the Lord. You are so fortunate to have that little white kitty, as she is to have you.
