A former pet who was found roaming a California neighborhood, Bisou has called the PRC home since 1993. Bisou is French for “kiss,” and there’s no mistaking why this gal is so named: when greeting someone, she often puckers up with a kiss-face and makes a sweet whistling sound. Bisou loves spending time in her outdoor enclosure. She is often observed soaking up the early morning sun, climbing and swinging on the enrichment structures, foraging for seeds and nuts in her enrichment pool, and snuggling up in a hug with her companions as they nap. Her favorite foods are bananas, peanuts, mango, and kale. Bisou’s beautiful face and kind, soulful eyes are impossible to resist, and everyone who meets her falls instantly in love with this sweet girl.
