animals can be so expressive. for example, right now, i have refused to give a cat chicken, and the cat is expressing "that's a nice recliner you have there, it would be a shame if someone were to scratch the ever-living shit out of it while making aggressive eye contact then run back and forth through the house crashing into fragile objects".
