Queenie B is known as the sanctuary’s “nosy neighbor” — she always knows what’s going on with everyone in her group. She’s a master at catching fruit and other food that’s given out, and often demands rather than asks when she sees a caregiver with goodies passing by, extending her arm high in the air signaling that she is ready for them to throw her a treat. If she is thrown something she doesn’t like, she’ll let it sail right past her, or even catch it and throw it back. If it’s something tasty like a perfect yellow banana, she’ll catch it like a pro.
“Queenie is the definition of a diva. She’ll throw the biggest fit over nothing and likes to keep things interesting by starting a little drama sometimes.”
