Look at Miss Charlotte go, she has been running, climbing, using her left arm, alert to alarm calls and sounds. She has been staying in a smaller area for her recovery after being shot in the head by a pellet gun but soon she will be ready to meet some of the sanctuary monkeys. What a little miracle she is. Thank you for sending her love and strength. PC @lauraquinn3 ...

Pokie has been with foster mum Uh-oh for a while now. Today we let in alpha female Plotty, Keksie and ex-pet Ricky. She was confident with them all and even joined in grooming Ricky with Uh-oh. We hope to release her into Gismo troop next week. ...

The first touch between a baby and foster mum is a special moment to see and no doubt one of the most rewarding. Orphan Elio who was found being sold illegally by the side of the road has been meeting females through the fence. Here he is with Maggie Mae. Pls note there is a fence between them initially for safety until they get to know each other. Soon Elio will get a monkey foster mum and a new family at Goliath troop. Follow his progress....

Charlotte woke up this morning much more aware of everything that was going on, she was no longer sleepy and full of energy even swiping at her human carers after realising they are human not monkeys. So today Charlotte went to the vets to have the pellet removed from her head which was successful. When she got back home she was full of energy again climbing around and eating. This girl is a strong little fighter 🙂 ...

Charlotte enjoyed drinking some milk formula from a baby bottle now that she is more awake and aware. Still no further seizures and she is becoming more aware of her surroundings. The swelling on her right eye has nearly gone. Thank you everyone for all the love and support for her. I think she knows she is loved ❤ PC Hana Bruger ...

Meanwhile orphan Elio who was born completely out of the usual birthing season is doing well considering it's winter and they are normally born in the summer months. More updates to come on him soon. #notpets PC @connie.needham ...

Charlotte had another good day, no seizures for a few days and wanted to walk around a lot today. She has been eating a lot of food by herself. She still isn't using her left arm much but much more mobile and her right eye is nearly open. Charlotte's message despite being shot with a pellet gun... Never give up.... PC @lauraquinn3 ...

Charlotte update, Laura sickbay staff has been caring for her most of today. She started the day off well eating a variety of fruits including strawberries and grapes especially bought for her, she drank lots of veggie juice and tried some dilute baby milk today for some protein. By afternoon she even tried to feed herself. Here she is sucking on a grape, she managed to eat it afterwards with some help but she likes to suck the juice out first. She did have some seizures again tonight but less frequent, she is having meds to help her relax through the night but otherwise the swelling has reduced and we can start to see her right eye so is progress. We've had some sleepless nights worrying about this little girl. @lauraquinn3 ...

Little Charlotte had a long day today. She started off well by eating pawpaw readily, drinking juice but later had some seizures which she is having treatment for. It's usual for such a serious trauma from being shot by a pellet gun. She has rested most of this afternoon and we are keeping her warm and quiet. Here she is held by her carer close to the chest so she feels the heartbeat and gets some bodywarmth. She is not aware of much but can perhaps realise we are trying to help her, we also have to hold her food for her. Tonight she is sleeping on her teddy getting more much needed rest to recover and remains in 24hr critical care. Thank you everyone for your comments, support and donations following Charlotte's story. ...

Some good news today Skylar an adult female was supposed to go out into a troop last year before lockdown happened. As soon as the door was opened and we had enough people to observe her this week she spent her first 2 nights out in the Holt & Barrington troop and has an old male friend Count as her bodyguard. We are very happy for her, she showed amazing confidence and wasn't going to waste anytime in exploring the trees. PC @punilu ...
