Chinese cat cries its own name when frightened

If you’re guessing they named him “Meow” — well, no. They named him “A Gui.” From the video, it’s a little hard to tell when it’s the cat and when it’s the people, but somebody’s saying a lot of “A Gui.” And also “pooossy.”

The owner, surnamed Sun, named the two-year-old cat A Gui. To his amusement, the cat started crying its own name in a voice not unlike a human child’s one day two years ago when it was placed into a basin to have a bath. Since then, the cat cries like that whenever it is frightened, Sun said.

I’m guessing “A Gui” is Chinese for, “Dude! Water! Not cool!”

A Gui! Agua! I just got it! Chinese cat is speaking Spanish.

Incidentally, that poor animal has the most embarrassingly bad toupé I’ve ever seen. Communism. Is there nothing it can’t ruin?

I saw a video on America’s Funniest Home Videos where the cat said “no” when it was going to get a bath. Very loudly, and very clearly, repeatedly. It was fascinating, and creepy at the same time.

Having a grand mal seizure, by the look of it. I have a feeling the owners are scratching its butt off-camera. In one of the “cats doing stuff” videos that’s been going around, a cat does exactly that while having its rump rasped.

Man, am I glad to see you guys. Sitemeter must be on the fritz…it tells me nobody’s been here for 24 hours. I was, like, “is it my breath?”

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
