Watch: Cat uses sign language to talk to deaf owner
It's been said that it's not the strongest of the species nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change, that makes it through. If that is true, this cat who learned to sign language with his deaf owner is proof of the theory.
The original video, uploaded in 2012, has racked up over 5.7 million views. It demonstrates the cat getting the man's attention and making the sign for "feed me" or "eat" (watch below).
If you're looking to investigate cases for cats who have mastered sign language, check out this story where Kim Silva, a retired teacher from the American School for the Deaf, adopted a deaf cat called Bambi and taught it and two of its companions to communicate with her using sign language.
