i can't handle this in a reasonable way

okay but imagine for a moment if you will the reasoning behind dan calling arin big cat like imagine them side by side on the grump couch and arin just gently butts his head against dan’s arm until dan reaches over and runs a hand through his hair and arin just melts and dan’s like “god, man, you’re just like mimi and moch, you’re just a big cat, huh?” and then it just *sticks* and that’s the easiest way to calm arin down if he’s upset about a game; dan just says “c'mere big cat, it’s okay” and pets arin’s hair until he’s not so upset anymore
