Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THI LETHHIDOE HERALD Monday, November 13, 1972 Similar lo koala bear Rare slow lori popular house pets EDMONTON (CD Bon- nie Singer's bathroom is a popular place when she has visitors. But not for the usual rea- son, "I sometimes don't see my company until 2 or 3 a.m.." said Miss Sbger. "They don't come near the living room be- cause they're so fascinated by the lori The slow loris is a small, brown furry animal native to Southeast Asia. It has a small head, large brown eyes, tiny almost-human hands with fin- gers and fingernails, no tail, and two for grooming and one for eating." It moves in slow motion. It is a the monkey dif- ficult to compare with any other animal. Visually, the closest thing to it is probably the koala bear. There are probably fewer than 10 slow lori on the North American continent and two of them, Bimbo and her mother Suki, share Miss Singer's apartment. Their fa- vorite room is the bathroom. CAME FROM PET SHOP "I got the lori through a local pet shop years ago. When I took them home, the cab driver was really curious. He was so interested that he carried them upstairs played with them and ended up getting a parking Miss Singer said. Miss Singer, 31, a civic li- brary employee who also owns six cats, said she knew little about lire slow lori when she first got them. "There was so liltle written about them. I had no idea how rare they were." She knew that the cat is Ihe slow tori's natural enemy, so for the fbst week she kept the lori's cage In a separate room. Then one day someone accidentally left the cage open. "The next morning I found (he lori on top of Ihe cage, quite unconcerned about the and the cats were quite unconcerned about the lori." The animals have been un- caged eve- since. "If you have to cage an ani- iv'inn BONNIE'S LORI-Bonnie Singer of Edmonton warchej one of her two pet slow loris feed on a ban'ona.

She suggested that the r son her cnls didn't bother Ihe lori was because of the lori's slow motion. "If they'd moved quickly, (lie cats would have been after them immediately. But they move so slowly and deliberately that the cats themselves were confused." The lori, immaculate ani- mals, spend much of their time In the bathroom. The moist air appeals to the lori, which are tropical animals. "They wanted to sleep in my best fur coat, but I de- cided that couldn't be done. So I went to an auction and got them an old Persian lamb coat for ?3. They sleep in the sleeves." "When I first got the lori, it was difficult to get them to eat. I kept them alive on raisins, meal worms and grapes." EAT CIGARETTES They now eat raw ham- burger mixed with baby for- mula, grapes, bananas, frozen strawberries, and "they're crazy about tea." They also enjoy eating a and then. The slow loris is a vanishing species and can no longer be exported. Miss Singer.admits she feels "badly" about the fact that Bimbo and Suki are in captivity. "But isn't it better that I have them loose than that someone has them In a cage? "They could never go back to the jungle. They've learned to trust their most hated pre- dator, the cat." I ALMOST FIT! King Arthur jumped into the situation before he realized just how small people-cars could be. Especially for a hip-high Saint Bernard. Not- being at all camera shy, the pup put his best paw forward and posed beautifully probably in hopes of ousting the latest TV star, George. Groenen photo Newspaper lends hand CHATHAM, Ont. (CP) Stu- dents at a local public school here have been learning how to get more out of a newspaper and improve their reading while they do. The children are given headlines from the paper, then asked to locate the story, giving the page and column number. Who, what, where, when and why questions must also be an- swered. Andre Chambers, a stu- dent, said he has learned a lot and has a belter idea where to find things. Women folk outnumber men BHOCKVILLE, Ont.
