Do you remember how Michael Jackson had that pet chimpanzee back in the ’80s named Bubbles? Well, he just celebrated his 40th birthday.
Bubbles is living at a “retirement home” in Florida called the Center for Great Apes. And they just threw a massive birthday party for him.
There was a cake that was frosted with mashed bananas, and they wrote his name in blueberries. The theme was . . . well . . . BUBBLES. They had an actual bubble bath, and paper bubbles as decorations.
Bubbles even got PRESENTS, like a blanket with his photos on it. The staff entertained him with DVDs of Michael, which may seem triggering . . . but they say he loves watching them, and remembers him.
Michael bought Bubbles as an infant in 1983 from a Texas research facility, but within six years, he became too big to keep as a pet, and was moved to a ranch in California. He’s been at the retirement home since 2005.
