Gentle Gorilla Koko Adopts Two Adorable Kittens (Video)

Koko gets a return visit from the two kittens she selected from a litter of seven. She’s tentatively named them “Tiger” and “Blackie”.

The question was will Koko tire of the kittens or want them to stay as her permanent guests at the Gorilla Foundation, but after much playing, enrichment and affection, the answer was clear.

While this does not satisfy Koko’s dearest wish which is to raise a gorilla (or other great ape) baby, it provides a loving experience for gorilla and kittens.
