Evolution Door

I. AM. SCREAMING.

why can he walk away in the first gif but has to make sure it completes itself properly in the second one?

As long as the connection tip is less than halfway across, it wants to return to its original position. You can see in the first one he gave it a bit more of a push so he knows it will cross the halfway threshold and fall into place. In dynamics terms, there are three equilibria, two stable ones in the closed and open positions, and one unstable one in the exact middle.

i want this crazy door

It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

Best thing I have ever seen I love cats so much omg

Your cute cat of the day

Blimey! Speechless!

Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). 
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.

What a smart, sweet kitty!

this is the cutest thing ever omg
