This is a really cute monkey, but I guess I have to wonder about the $4000 playroom and the legal fees that were undoubtedly spent on this custody battle. Do Americans go overboard providing for their pets?

Armani the capuchin monkey plays December 17, 2007 in the $4,000 playroom that his owner, Elyse Gazewitz, had specially built for him in her Rockville, Maryland home. Armani was held in a zoo for seven months during a custody battle, which last week saw a judge order him returned to Gazewitz in a case that had strong parallels to nightmarish child custody cases.
