Koko and Ms. Gray as a Kitten

Koko adopted two kittens on her 44th birthday — Ms. Gray and Ms. Black.  She nurtured and protected them as if they were her own babies, and they have grown up quite nicely,  Just the other day, Ms. Gray (shown above as a kitten) asked Koko if she could scratch her back, by scratching Koko's leg and looking up into her eyes.  As a kitten, Ms. Gray (and occasionally Ms. Black) used to spontaneously help Penny scratch Koko's back (see the video).
