This picture reminds me of a couple others. One was of Koko the gorilla, who had a little kitten she named All Ball. Koko could communicate with
people using sign language. She loved that kitten, played with it, kept it as a pet. There was a great picture of this huge gorilla holding this
tiny little kitten in her massive hands. The kitten was completely relaxed, so you know that Koko wasn't hurting her, even though she was incredibly
Another great image was of a female gorilla in a zoo, cradling a human child who had fallen into the gorilla pit and was knocked unconscious. She
cradled him in her lap, which was a cue to the other gorillas not to bother the kid. She kept him until zoo workers could get in there and get the
kid out. Somehow she knew this kid was in danger, and did what was necessary to protect him.
It is obvious that animals have feelings. They certainly show fear and anger, for example. The ones I live with also show affection and
friendliness, pleasure, annoyance, etc. And these are cats, not well known for their affection.
