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.
Having a pet is so weird. Like neither of you speak each other’s language and yet you form some strong bond by rubbing against each other and sleeping together and you might accidentally kick them in the face or step on their tail once in a while but at the end of the day you two are best buddies from entirely different species.
Every time I see those stick figure “my family” decals on someone else’s car I find myself wishing I owned a Dark Shadows set. The Collins family is so much more interesting than my own! I could have a stick figure Barnabas with Inverness and cane, a stick figure Angelique sticking pins in a doll, a stick figure Quentin with mutton-chops and a little ghostly Sarah.
Does anyone know if there is anything like that out there?

Just a little experiment…
Emma would kick the shit out of Barnabas
But who is that vampire guy though?! (I honestly have no clue).
Barnabas Collins, from the Dark Shadows TV show. He’s a vampire in a soap opera, basically.
Barnabas wouldn’t know what hit him. That wouldn’t stop him wanting to make Emma his vampire bride, however. *eg*

"Thank you, Willie, for letting me kill your best friend - it is very appreciated"

I love the classic who fandom because we react to episodes that aired 30+ years ago as if they came out today
