I remember the horror the time my daughter Anna who was four years old at the time lost one of her beanie kittens that she called "Kita". It was a small dollar store stuffed animal but to my daughter, it meant the world. I am appealing to you as a parent or lover of children and their imaginations for help with this.

I found the little fellow you see here in the middle of the parking lot of a business located on Ambassador Caffery Parkway and West Congress St in Lafayette. He looks like a sweet monkey. The kind of monkey who might keep a little one companion after bedtime prayers. I would love for this monkey to be back at home with the one that he loves the most.

If that's you, you can contact me via email bruce@973thedawg.com or send me a note via the 973 The Dawg Facebook page. We will get him home to you.

In the meantime, I went through Mr. Monkey's phone and found a few pictures you might enjoy. I have learned that Mr. Monkey knows quite a few celebrities. Here he is with the Queen of England.

He also knew TV's Rob Perillo before the facial hair thing happened.

And lest we forget he has rubbed shoulders with the movers and shakers of business and politics.

Our primate friend appears to love the good life too. Here he is lounging by the pool.

I believe he was hitting more than overripe bananas when this picture was taken.

Our friend, Mr. Monkey is also quite musically talented. Here he is after a slightly tipsy version of that piano bar classic, Yes, We Have No Bananas.

The bottom line is this. If a 55-year-old man can have this much fun with a stuffed monkey I can only imagine the kind of fun he and his young friend are missing. Please help me find Mr. Monkey's way back home.

Sometimes the world needs a little kindness and lot more silly don't you think?
