She already has keen insight into the mind of a feline
Cats are inscrutable.
It’s just about impossible to know what our feline friends are thinking from moment to moment, although if their behavior is any indication, it’s probably some combination of “I’m hungry,” “I’m smarter than you,” “Get the fuck away from me,” and “I’m gonna catch that laser if it’s the last thing I do!”
One little girl attempted to get inside the head of her pet cat via an exclusive interview with the critter, and the result, as shared by her father on Twitter, is basically unassailable.
The little girl is the daughter of UK-based writer-director Paul Duane, and she appears to have inherited her dad’s creativity. Either that or her cat can talk. Because anyone who’s ever had a pet cat can attest that this interview is ACCURATE AF.

There is really only one topic here, and to say it’s relevant to the times would be a major understatement. The subject of Coco’s interview is touching, i.e., where does she like to be touched or, specifically, pet. As you might imagine, Coco is very particular about the ways in which her body is cathandled, and she makes her strong feelings known several times throughout the intimate one-on-one conversation.
The interview starts with a few softballs:
“Can I rub you on the head?”
But the gloves come off quickly.
Coco is not pleased by this idea: “YOU ARE FORBIDDEN TO EVER TOUCH MY TUMMY!” the cat bellows. Undeterred, the interviewer soldiers on. But the conversation has been tainted. Coco has been riled. There is no going back now, though as her cat gets increasingly agitated, the little girl must have wanted to.
Finally, unable to hold back any longer, she unleashes (you heard me) the final question:
“IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU? THIS INTERVIEW IS OVER!”
Look, we here at The Dad realize that cats can’t talk, and that this little girl’s interview with her pet Coco is 100% fake news. And yet the verisimilitude with which she renders the exchange, the sharp eye she has for interpreting her cat’s behavior, and her precocious understanding of the desire animals, and people, have to not be violated, almost makes us question whether she can read her cat’s mind.
If so, I wonder if she takes requests. I need some answers from my dog.
