#art/#history: #koko had her secrets. we all do - but i can't help wondering how happy she was with her life in captivity. she certainly kept her wicked sense of humour. naming her kitten 'allball' was genius, but when she signed 'cat did it' in response to being questioned over a sink that had been pulled from a wall...well, that's just fucking inspired. accusations that she was simply miming without meaning are ridiculously anthropocentric. her legacy will be indelible. koko: 4 july 1971 - 21 june 2018.
