(AP) - Koko, the "talking" gorilla who cried when her pet kitten died, has a new feline friend, and with it a rival. Michael, the other gorilla at the Gorilla Foundation who knows sign language, has staked a claim to the pet. Calling her new kitten "baby," Koko cradles and kisses the tiny pet, wraps it in blankets and shows it her toys. Thus ends her period of mourning for All Ball, her first pet cat that was killed by a car before Christmas. Koko, who "talks" with about 500 words expressed in sign language, gave a cry of distress when told that "All Ball" was gone. She had asked for the furry friend for Christmas in 1983. Until Koko received the new kitten, the 13-year-old gorilla would make comments such as "sleep cat" and "frown-sad" whenever the subject of cats came up in her conversation, said Penny Patterson, director of the Gorilla Foundation in this community about 20 miles south of San Francisco. It was Patterson who taught Koko more than 500 words expressed in sign language. Asking for another striped cat, Koko would plead, "Tiger, please tiger," Patterson said. But Koko didn't want Just any cat. She wanted another like All Ball, who was a Manx, an unusual breed with no tail, said Colleen Corey, an administrative and research assistant at the foundation. "It was no easy task to find a kitten of this rare breed at this tune of the year, when very few kittens are born," Patterson said. After months of searching, the foundation finally found a 7-week- old Manx tiger-striped kitten in Riverside. At first, Koko was disappointed that she "wasn't able to pick a kitten. She wanted to pick her own," Corey said. > Koko's disappointment was quickly forgotten when the new kitten arrived last week. The gorilla put the cat on her breast, inspecting its face and paws. She carried the cat everywhere, foundation authorities said. Koko even refused to hand over the cat, which needed treatment for an eye infection, Patterson said.
