I think I’ve come to realize that there are those who would fear me. Because I am a woman, who does not need them. I can put together furniture all on my own. If I’ve ever need to move it, then I would either sweat and do it myself, or get another woman to help me. I can kill bugs on my own. Sure, if they are really big, I do squeal and run away. But when I’m coming back, I have a big ass shoe to stomp them with. I have been in control of my own pleasure for so long that I’ve never truly cared or bothered to have anyone else involved. I take myself out to the movies or shopping all of the time. I am perfectly fine with spending time on my own with my own thoughts than filling the space with the warble of another. I think that scares people. Because I really don’t need the bulk of society to function. And when I want company or services I can’t provide for myself (like car stuff), I decide when, who, and where I will seek those out. I can take care of myself. And that is something worth fearing.
That’s really red guys…wasn’t expecting 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.
EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.
Looks like he’s saying ‘i want food/to eat’ he does the downward gesture with flat hand palm down which means want..to me anyhow.
