Remember during lockdown when we stayed at home and the highlight of our day was receiving parcels in the mail?
That still sums up life for TikTok sensation George the monkey.
He’s a much-loved pet living his best life unboxing exciting parcels that his 14 million fans send him every week - all captured in TikTok videos.
He’s received everything from a bed, bubble machine and yummy snacks to sensory toys, swings and even a car (monkey-sized of course!).
He’s intelligent, cute and curious and it’s hard not to smile seeing him interact with his human friend Will.
A lot of the videos start with Will saying “Hey George, you got a parcel! What is it?” followed by George opening it up and exploring the contents. George is great at ripping open the packaging and he likes to ‘read’ the manuals before getting into the gift.
So how did this family get to be owners of such an adorable monkey? Will explained in a video that his mother-in-law was diagnosed with a horribly painful disease called CRPS and so they brought in George as a service animal and also for emotional support. They found George in need of a home a mere hour’s drive away and he’s been with them for 10 years now.
