As the only cat who is fearless and friendly enough to get along with all of the animals at the sanctuary, he's managed to crack the barrier of one particularly difficult clique.
"Even the geese that nobody else gets along with because they're a little intense, Wesley T. Monkey will hang with them," Lahiri said. Another prime example of his "I don't give a damn" attitude: Lahiri said that it isn't odd to check on four 1,000-pound pigs eating a stack of hay with Wesley resting right on top of the hay, not at all concerned that he might be accidentally be eaten. That said, the animals respect one another and are careful with each other.
Wesley's flamboyant name matches his equally flamboyant personality. But the meaning behind it?
Lahiri explained that Wesley is the name of a musician she likes and his middle initial, "T," stands for "THE," making his full name Wesley The Monkey.
