For your amusement this weekend, various artifacts from Tumblr:
*Recently Barbie introduced some new ,more inclusive looking, dolls to their roster. You just know Black Twitter wasn’t gonna let that go, for a second! OMG! These are spot on!
I am here on Tumblr for just this type of cat discourse:
i wonder if my pets have like a proper language and when i try to speak back to them i’m just speaking jargon
like for example my cat always speaks to me when I come home and i meow back to her and she’ll meow again & even though i don’t think twice about it to her it’s probably a situation where it’s like
her, meowing: “im glad you’re home”
me, meowing back: “tax benefits”
her, meowing: “why do u always do this”
cats actually have a human-specific language. cats don’t often meow at each other and seem to use subvocal communications that humans can’t hear to chat cat-to-cat. however, cats seem to use what humans would call “shout-until-you’re-understood” to speak to humans. so basically, it’s more like:
“I’M GLAD YOU’RE HOME!”
“NO, I’M GLAD YOU ARE HOME”
“IT’S OKAY. I LOVE YOU TOO, MY DUMB HUMAN”
The domestic house cat’s wild ancestors have a much harsher voice, too. The going theory is that early cats mimicked human infants which tripped humans’ nurturing instincts, and then selective breeding did the rest.
We make a big deal over how dogs have developed the ability to understand human expressions and tones (and let’s be fair, that is in fact awesome), but cats are possibly the only species that has changed their vocal language to try to communicate with us.
what I love about this post (apart from cats because cats are ADORABLE) is the assumption that cats have words for tax benefits.
Are you suggesting they don’t?
That first sign tho’! And that last picture is oddly specific!
My question was how the hell the dog got up there, not why! (The why seems pretty obvious!)
Okay, but in all truthiness, Jason is always taking shit too far. Jason is a habitual Line-Stepper!
We said shit like this all the time when we were kids:
Ex: “boy you got a WHOLE girlfriend. Get tf away from me.”
WWHHOOOOO!!!!!! I am ready! (Although apparently, I can just go ahead and unsubscribe during the show’s hiatus, I guess.)
TACO NEEDS TO STAY IN HIS DAMN LANE
TACO IS BACK AND HE’S STILL A NOSY BITCH
