The Evil Queen draws the line at sharing clothes.
It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing
Best thing I have ever seen I love cats so much omg
Your cute cat of the day
Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course).
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.
What a smart, sweet kitty!
this is the cutest thing ever omg
What impresses me most, on repeated viewing, is the little paw-swipe through the air that the cat does before bringing its paw to its mouth. It isn’t just patting its mouth; watch how carefully it braces itself before making that swipe, both times, like that’s the hardest part of what it’s doing.
I think it’s trying to mimic the finger-and-thumb grasping motion that accompanies the “food” gesture. Without opposable thumbs, that little swipe with pads extended is the closest it can get.
Cats, man. So amazing.
