Koko, the gorilla famous for her sign language skills, celebrated her 44th birthday this week.
And as a gift her keepers gave her two new kittens – the following video shows the moment they met.
Koko was instantly taken with Ms Gray and even signalled she wanted her placed on her head, which the staff at the Gorilla Foundation, the organisation that look after her, were happy to do.
The talented gorilla can use 1,000 signs and understands about 2,000 spoken English words, according to Huffington Post. SHOW VIDEO >
