Cat uses sign language to communicate with deaf owner

Rate this post

Watch this darling kitty “signs” to his deaf owner he wants food.

Knowing the man is deaf and can’t hear him, instead of meowing, the cat gets the man’s attention by tapping the man’s arm with his right paw.

The man asks the cat if he wants to eat by signing the word “food” — putting his fingers together and tapping them to his lips.

The kitty replies “yes” by signing the word “food” — bringing his kitty paw to touch his mouth.

    • Yes, Lana, I agree, as it’s VERY rare in cats, but common in dawgs, such as Dakota, my 10 lb dwarf Spitz. Such a cat is TRULY a keeper, worth whatever it takes to keep her in buttons & bows! I’ve had cats I loved & cared for, but they were NEVER as intelligent as this one!

  6. 🙂 Good kitty!

  7. That’s so CUTE!

  8. Cats are a lot more observant and intelligent than we give them credit for!

  9. What a smart kitty! Thank you for a great post!

  10. I turned the volume as high as it would go and couldn’t hear a thing………

    • That’s because the man is a deaf mute, and the cat didn’t meow because it knows the man is deaf, which is why the cat “signs”.
