These stories always make me cringe. Poor thing was pregnant every year. Yes the good thing is she is no longer at a lab and she can have a good life now. THIS IS WHY WE NEVER STOP FIGHTING TO STOP THESE ABUSIVE LABS FROM EVER HAVING ANY ANIMALS AGAIN!
Enjoy your life Jody, you deserve so much...

My god - 9 babies were taken away from her??!! Just as horrible as the dairy industry...animals are just as maternal as we are!! So thrilled that she will be spending the rest of her life in some peace and happiness!!

What a story, poor Jody. How she must have suffered all those years. I'm so glad she, at least, is living a good life, something every living creature deserves.

This story made me cry.

It says that "Mother not taking good care of infant!" How the HELL can she take good care of her babies if they keep taking them from her side to use them in experiments!!

Stop using animals in labs!!!!

There is no reason to test on animals. If chocolate was tested on animals, non of us would be eating it. I hate hearing about these poor lab animals and I curse everyone who tests and does research on animals and promotes these things.

Mt heart breaks for what we have done to the great apes. There is no excuse for the torture they have gone through in the name of "science".

Thank you for sharing this story Cher. The apes have long suffered for so called research, which TOTALLY needs to end FINALLY, FOREVER! So upset for them & what they all had to endure.~

The so-called scientists who have robbed Jody of her insticts are monsters. I was surprised to see how an orphaned stray cat, just 1-year old, knew exactly how to give birth and look after her smalls. If a primate does not care, it means a lot, and Jody is not to blame.
