Koko is one of the most popular animals on this planet. I am sure you have come across various news and videos related to this gorilla many times yourself. Koko has learnt sign languages and has thus 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. She even named him. But Koko was left grieving when the kitten was run over by a car and left for dead.

This year on July 4th, Koko turned 44 years old. As a birthday gift, she was given a box filled with little kittens. Koko fell in love with one of these furballs, while the other one fell in love with her. She has adopted both of these kittens into her family now. According to her foundation, her “maternal and play instincts” kicked in immediately when she met them.
