Koko was a very intelligent gorilla, with an estimated IQ of somewhere between 75 and 95. Such a gentle animal.
Sadly now RIP.
fwiw, caveat lector especially in regard to the meaning and reliability of IQ scores:

In the UK 70 is the number used as a rule of thumb to diagnose significant cognitive impairments.

Yes, but we're talking about a gorilla here. Intelligent for a gorilla.

New cat treats are always nice to try out on t'moggies. Some go down well, others not.

Today I picked up some Sheba Creamy Snacks. It's a paste that you squeeze out of a tube like toothpaste and hold out to the cat to lick. All three cats went MAD for it, even Simbah who's rarely impressed by new foods. Highly recommended! Probably good for giving meds too.
