Found this at a bar in Lyon.
Classes start tomorrow and I have all kinds of nerves.
As a college student you’re either struggling academically, financially, or emotionally. Or all three.
if you ever think about sending me an ask and decide not to cause “oh she doesn’t care” or “oh I don’t want to bother her” literally I’m the loneliest piece of shit you can find and would still love you if you sent me the word nuzzle over and over again
"Der Verrufene Weiher" by Maximilian Liebenwein
Robin Williams and Pam Dawber in ”Mork and Mindy”, 1981.
I swear to God. He looks like: “Do I want to eat her or do I want to be her friend? I don’t know. I’ll figure it out.” And Garry Marshall is somewhere going: “PLEASE, ROBIN! SHE’S THE ONLY ONE THAT WASN’T AFRAID OF YOU!”
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.
this is pretty remarkable
