Too Cute for Words: Kito & his trusty pal

Kito and his furry friend

This is Kito, a Kinkajou that lives with his boss Jodie in Aberdeen, Scotland. Kito was a bit lonely after being taken from his parents, but he has found a great friend in his toy lemur, which Jodie bought for him at a charity shop.
Pet shop owner Jodie, 29, said: "Kito treats the lemur like his best friend. He washes it like a little brother or sister and is always trying to feed it fruit.
"Whenever someone new comes into the house he sticks his lemur out of the cage to act as a guard. He’s convinced it’s real."

Lonely ... cute Kito is the only kinkajou in Scotland

Kinkajous, also known as honey bears, are native to Mexico and Brazil. Jodie,
of Aberdeen, bought 15-week-old Kito for £2,000 after his previous owner
became ill.
