My name is Kaitie. I live in Adelaide, Australia. When I was four years old, my mum and I lived in Uganda in Africa.
Kaitie was four years old when she travelled with her mother to Uganda, where her mum was going to study chimpanzees. One day, a two week old orphaned red-tailed monkey was brought to their sanctuary. As the adults were all busy working with chimps, Kaitie was placed in charge of caring for the tiny monkey. This is the true story of Kaitie’s friendship with the baby monkey she called ‘Little One'.


Kaitie Afrika Litchfield was born in Adelaide in 1998. She spends as much time as possible with her mum, Dr Carla Litchfield, at Adelaide and Monarto Zoos. Kaitie wants to work with wolves when she is older. Her pets include a python, bearded dragons, two cats and a dog.
