A friend of mine told me about this video of a cat who knows how to use utensils.
I'm putting my comments in spoiler tags so people can see the video first.
OK, my first thought was, why would I want to train Orkid to use a fork? It's just something else I have to wash! Besides, she only gets dry food, so a fork wouldn't work.
And then I watched the video. And I think this woman is crazy, and she needs more to do in her life. To me, it just shows how empty she feels her life is. She obviously took a lot of time to train the cat to do that. I can just see how much good she could do if she channeled that energy into teaching people who have to re-learn using their hands and things.
If I tried to dip Orkid's paws in a bowl of water to wash them, I'd be well bloodied fairly immediately.
Oh, and on behalf of Koreans, I am offended that she's using them as an excuse to teach her cat how to "use chopsticks".
And another friend found the video funny and said there's lots of things that people waste their time with, which I agree and understand, and it's not like I'm spending my spare time saving the world, so I'm not sure why I have this particular reaction.
