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.
Cats, people. Respect them. This is awesome. And more than a little cute.

scarlett is so tired of this shit
I am equally super psyched, kind of scared and also bummed it’s the last one. Mostly really super psyched though for now….
I really just can’t with shows/shared videos of people playing with and/or getting physical with wild animals like it is a safe, cool thing.
The stuff is ridiculous. Oh, it’s so cute, I want to hug a bear and wrestle with a lion too! Except it’s a super easy way to die! And it is totally cruel to the animal in the long run because it cannot persist. How many things have to happen to people who have worked with animals, even specific animals, for years, even decades, to make it stop? Stop making people think going somewhere with baby wild animals is a fun thing that is okay and that the animals aren’t suffering and doomed to a miserable life.

Sharing and broadcasting media that makes it look like this stuff (injuries, death, etc.) is not the normal behavior of a wild animal perpetuates the ridiculous notion that people CAN pet a tiger or go camp and feed bears and everything will be just fine like in YouTube videos. And it is that kind of mentality that fuels the exotic trade and the idea that if you have money, you can go hang out with wild animals (regardless of what captivity is doing to them) and even get your own. Remember when that guy hugged the lion? Then people think it’s okay to go to a place with lion cubs and pet them. Even if it means those cubs will live a horrible existence. Go talk to the people at Big Cat Rescue and other similar organizations and ask them how cool it is to post videos of thes self-trained idiots who think it is cool to bottle feed fucking grizzly bears on TV like it’s a thing that is safely possible.
People are so stupid, both the people that film with the arrogance that THEY are the ones that can be friends with huge strong predators, and the people that think it is cool to subjugate animals and then blame them when they hurt a human that they’ve been taught is their equal. This stupid ass now trying to live with the worst predators ever, hyenas, is just asking for some pack payback for his intrusion. Make sure you share the video of him kissing the one, single hyena though! It is super cute. For now.
King Otter Sends Forth His Army
Via saebaryo, who writes, “These Asian small-clawed otters were going about their business when it was suddenly feeding time and they all knew exactly what was coming.”
They will kill you with their cutes.
