Koko the gorilla just absolutely loves kittens, so she adopted two for her very own
Koko got her birthday — not only did one kitten come to visit, but a whole litter.
Koko fell in love, and she has adopted these two kittens into her family, and it has energized her world.
"Not only have Koko's maternal and play instincts kicked in, but she is signing more to her caregivers and generating new content everyday that can be used by The Gorilla Foundation to create empathy for great apes.
This can have significant benefits to both endangered free-living great apes and those in captive environments, by encouraging the development of 2-way communication with their caregivers (which Koko has had since she was a baby).
The Gorilla Foundation is now considering a multimedia sequel to the classic book, Koko's Kitten, which has already reached millions of children worldwide, and has the power to motivate millions more to learn how to make the world a better place for all of its conscious inhabitants."
Watch the adorable video below! When she asks for her caregiver to put a kitten on her head, we couldn't stop laughing! :)
