Koko is one of the most famous animals on the planet. I am sure you have come across lots of videos of this gorilla before. She is widely known all over the world for learning sign languages. This intelligent girl has made interspecies communication a reality. Some years back, she wanted to raise a child of her own. The Gorilla Foundation gave her a kitten so that she could bring him up by herself. Koko immediately fell in love and even named him.
But sadly, the kitten got run over by a car and passed away. Koko was left grieving. So on her 44th birthday, which falls on the fourth of July, her caretakers gave her another gift. She was overwhelmed when she received a box full of tiny little kittens. Koko fell in love once again. She even adopted two of them into her family now. According to the foundation, her maternal and play instincts kicked in immediately when she met them.
The YouTube description states that the kittens have energized her world. She is even signing more to her caregivers and generating new content every day that can be used by The Gorilla Foundation to create empathy for great apes. Watch the full story below.
