    Cats are barely even evolved to communicate between themselves. A wild undomesticated cat spends basically their whole life alone. cats primarily communicate with their scents and urine, and have intimidation responses against other animals. That's it.

      If they couldn't communicate between themselves they'd never be able to have kittens

    Do people actually think any vertebrate would survive without basic learnig ability or that pressing buttons for certain actions / learning certain words equals speech?

      Okay, but watch this video:

      and this one:

      There's a level of projection and extrapolation going on here that's reaching pretty far in the name of anthropomorphizing this cat. Especially in the second video where the responses have such incredibly long delays that the cat is probably not actually maintaining the same train of thought that whole time.

    I see no reason why this wouldn't work for simple things like "feed me" or "go outside". If you can train a dog to scratch at the door to be let out, you can train him to push a talking button.

      Yes but in this woman's videos, her cat is supposedly saying things like "I don't like your new boyfriend", "I hope you realize you haven't watched your bedsheets in 2 weeks", "you still aren't registered to vote", etc.

      That's not talking, and the videos are also incredibly cherry picked. Its the monkeys and typewriter thing but with dogs and buttons and more involved attention prostitutes

    I don't know why it's supposed to be impressive. My cats can communicate what they want without a meme soundboard.

    Wouldn't this setup work with rats which are one of the smartest animals?

    yes they can and losers are scared of this because their little baby replacement is an actual living being that can comprehend things. the only buttons i dont believe in are the ones with weird hard to convey concepts attached such as love. things like outside/times/rain/pain/stranger/play/different body parts/take medication/angry/poop/pee/then/names/going away/where/hmmm? etc. are wonderful and should be used by everyone. theres not a single reason to not give your pet the possibility to tell you it is in pain. also animals are visibly frustrated if they try to tell you something but they cant. if youve never noticed that about your pet then youre legit dumb as frick lol.

      Love is a basic animal instinct like hunger. They definitely comprehend it.

      Rats have baseline mammal intelligence. Most everything is significantly smarter, only harder to study because of their more complex motivations and capacity for more emotional decision making.

        Not him, but there's a difference between feeling love and being able to put it into words. You teach an animal words by direct association: Say "outside" and then place them outside; say "sit" and then push their butt down; say "food" and then put a bowl of food under them. Even "hurt" or body parts can be taught in very direct ways. But how do you teach an animal a heady concept like "love" when you can't use words to describe it? I would say the animal could at best associate the word "love" with direct acts of physical affection, but I doubt they really map it to an abstract emotional feeling the way we do.

    This can be useful when used simply.
    >push this button mean treat
    >push this button mean go outside
    >push this button mean go upstairs
    >push this button mean get toy
    But no animal can comprehend that a button means 'you' or 'me' or 'love' or 'hate'. The dogs and cats that do it are definitely just pushing random buttons because they get treats and attention, and the social media prostitutes post the ones that make a slight bit of grammatical sense. These people have harddrives worth of unuploaded footage of their pets pushing buttons that don't make sense.
    Its impressive when a dog or crow or pig can learn the difference between colours, don't those morons think that if an animal could genuinely communicate and understand English syntax it would be a huge, huge breakthrough?

      I've seen videos where dogs will specify a body part hurting and then it turns out there was actually a problem there. Like a dog pressing "ear, hurt" and then it turns out there was a tick in its ear and stuff like that. What do you think about that type of thing? It's certainly more complex and specific than just pressing the "outside" button.

        In order for the dog to even having a remote possibility or comprehending "hurting" you would have to hurt it every time it presses the "hurt" button so it knows what the English word "hurt" means. This would obviously cause the dog to never use that button, because that's the button that makes it get hurt. Also:

        Ear tick dog either a) pushed random buttons and through a stroke of incredible coincidence actually had a tick in its ear or b) the whole thing was staged and the owner trained them to push "ear hurt" and then actually planted a tick in their ear for views and "OMG PUPPERINO CAN TALK JUST LIKE PEOPLE [crying emoji]"

      Why wouldn't they just delete that footage?
