Koko, the famous gorilla known for her ability to speak with her trains via a modified form of sign language, fell in love with and became the adoptive mother of two kittens.
To celebrate her 44th birthday, staff at the Gorilla Foundation in Redwood City, California, introduced Koko to the kittens. And her reaction was adorable.
Koko has learned to use over 1,000 signs and understands about 2,000 spoken English words.
