I'm Melissa and I'm 19 years old. This is for all the random stuff I do/like/feel like ranting about.

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.
In freshman year we had this really beautiful student teacher. She was young and had traveled to so many places. At the end of the year I asked her to sign a quote on my binder (which was mostly filled with song lyrics) and she wrote this exact quote, and told me to enjoy life while it lasts.
