Muggle-born students being taught about the spell obliviate and immediately declaring their wands ‘neuralyzers’ and spending the rest of the day erasing people’s memories and quoting Men In Black, much to the confusion of the purebloods. But there’s this one muggle-born professor who thinks it’s hilarious and proclaims himself Agent K and magics up black sunglasses for all the people who get it and they spend the day annoying the hell out of everyone.
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
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.
EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.
