Nonverbal communication from my cat!
I told y’all, Monroe points to her treats! This behavior is something she came up with all on her own to communicate what she wants. I did not train her to do that, she trained me to give her treats by reaching her paw up like that and giving me the cutest face she can muster. You can almost hear her saying “I want treats now! …please?”
So if somebody accepts this cat’s behavior as communication, but goes on to say a nonverbal autistic person’s behavior is just annoying, then the autistic person isn’t the one having trouble communicating.
Communication is a two-way street. Someone expresses something and someone else listens.
Just ignore the blather of Fox News. Mom had the TV on as white noise while playing Pearl’s Perils on her iPad.
