Deep Thoughts… Gorillas and Kittens.
When I see pictures or videos of Koko, the gorilla, with little kittens, I think, “Awww, she’s holding a kitten!” I worry about her accidentally hurting the kitten, but all in all, I’m in awe, I’m touched, I see the connection she has with another mammal that’s not her species.
I then wonder, “When I’m playing with a neighborhood cat, or even my own, how many animals view me in the same way that I view Koko?” “Oooooh, look at that unusual animal holding that adorable, tiny kitten! It does have nurturing instincts! That’s so adorable, I hope it doesn’t hurt the kitten! By the way, why does that creepy animal only walk on two legs and is bald every where but the top of its head? Ewwww. We must scratch its eyes out and save the kitty.”
From what I learned, every animal loves kittens. ALL OF THEM! If you find one who doesn’t, burn it with fire for it is evil.
