Megan, 19, Pittsburgh.Cat lover. Hopeful future singer, actor, and dancer. Broadway and Disney fanatic. I watch too much TV, love food a little too much, and I'm really interested in and passionate about feminism and the amazingly diverse world we live in. And that's all I have to say about that.

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

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.
