    Font - prokopetz I think sometimes cats don't actually know what specifically they want - they're just generally dissatisfied, so they stand there yelling "I YEARN" on the off chance that you'll be able to do something about it. #life #cats O 53,028 notes :

    The number of times this has happened in our household… smh. You'd think we'd learn eventually, but no, our cats keep crying wolf and we keep dropping everything and running toward them to check if everything is okay no matter how many times they trick us.

    Quite frankly, we can somewhat understand this behavior. We, too, sometimes are hit with the urge to stop everything that we're doing and tell into the abyss.

    Font - darksiren Follow It's worse than that. Cats will yell "I YEARN" on the off chance that you'll be able to do something about it, then look at you like you're an asshole when you do something about it, yelling "That's just not right" while walking away, tail twitching, fuck them for being perfect creatures.

    Rectangle - fyrasha Follow yes, very much true in regards to cats, but i kinda want to just stand there yelling "I YEARN" on the off chance that someone will be able to do something about it too.

    Rectangle - graveantiquarian Follow I've always been lucky, the cats I've interacted with cry for me to follow them. When i do, they lead me to whatever perceived injustice is at the root of their suffering. Usually it's a food dish only 34 full, or a faucet that isn't dripping at the correct rate

    Facial expression - theamazingkelly69 Follow I've had several cats that clearly couldn't string a thought more complicated than "Thing is wrong, human fixes", so I absolutely believe this. OO 53,038 notes
