WHY ISN’T IT TAGGED, WHYYYYY. I shall feex eet.
This is from “A Gathering of Cats” by Makoto Shinkai. It’s a one-minute short, and you can watch the whole thing here.
Truest shit I’ve seen since Chi’s Sweet Home, y’all. Truest shit.
That was one the most amazing things I have ever watched.
…I can’t believe I’ve never seen this before. XD
That’s cats. Right there.
Who needs children when you can have cats?
GIMME THE MONEY.
"Very important. General rule for English speakers - if you don’t do it in the human context, don’t do it in the nonhuman context.
Just make a little effort to say “she or he” or “her or him” if you don’t know the sex. It’s a little effort with a very important social message.
Nonhuman animals are *persons*, not *things*. Therefore, we should refer to a nonhuman animal as a “she” or “he,” never as an “it.””
Okay so like I am all for calling an animal “he” or “she” if you know the sex but like this comic is right because animals really don’t know either way. Like, their brains aren’t as developed as ours and they don’t have much of a concept of self in the way we do. So if you call an animal an “it” it won’t be offended. Of course I do get offended when people who I KNOW know the sex of my pets still call them “it” like wtf no my animals are not “its”. But that’s ME as a HUMAN speaking. My animals DGAF.
Well, I’ll always say “he” or “she” because in French we simply don’t have “it” in our vocabulary. And still, can’t think of an animal as an object. Since in France every word has a genre, you’ll say “he” or “she” depending of the name of the animal, even if you don’t know the sex. For exemple “The Cat, he is the master of Internet” or “Look at this Turtle, she is a badass ninja”.
(Yes fellow ShellHeads. We end up talking about the Hamato Brothers saying “Elles” and with feminine adjective because The Turtle = La Tortue/Une Tortue. Bugs me buuuut. LE FRANCAIS. )

Listen here, you little shit…

Fire chickens, and non-fire chickens! Don’t worry, the chickies were only away from their mother for a few minutes to take these.
