There’s no feeling quite like having your hair brushed by someone else.
When there are no knots, having someone comb your hair and give your scalp a bit of a massage is heavenly.
And no one knows that feeling better than 20-year-old macaque Angel.
Her owner Teresa Bullock likes to brush her several times a day using different make-up brushes, which she says calms Angel down when she’s hyper.
Angel loves it so much that her eyes close as if in ecstasy, and she patiently turns her head so that Teresa can brush all those hard-to-reach places.
When Teresa stops, however, Angel throws tantrums.
‘When she was younger and hyper I did it to calm her down, as soon as I grabbed a comb she would run straight over,’ says Teresa.
‘Now she grabs the comb and slings it at me, she knows what she wants me to do.
‘She’s absolutely hilarious. She loves to go for rides in the car and will sit in her car seat enjoying the view.’
If only we had someone who’d do that for us too.
