Being Alone, Bored, and Cats: over here! i found someone with allergies! theycantalk.com aichu-chu-chu: willow-wanderings: theycantalk: allergies For anyone wondering why this happens: the body language cues that humans use to mean “I’m not interested in contact, please ignore me and leave me alone” are the same body language cues that cats use to say “I’m not a threat to you and we could chill together if you want.”The term “i speak cat” is kind of a misnomer because 95% of cat communication is NON-VOCAL.Cats who want to chill will look at you and then look away and/or blink slowly when you notice them staring. They will fold up their body to be smol and non-threatening. They will yawn and purr and act like they don’t care you’re there.All of these things say to a cat “we’re cool, bro, we should hang out.”Humans trying to avoid contact will adopt a closed body posture (legs close together, arms crossed, head down/slightly hunched over); to a cat that looks like trying to be smol and non-threatening.Humans trying to avoid contact will try to watch other people without the other person catching on to being watched. So they look and then immediately glance away when acknowledged; to a cat this says “yeah, I know you’re there but I’m ok with it, we’re cool.”Humans trying to avoid contact will keep fairly quiet and act bored to discourage interaction; to a cat that says “you can tell I’m totally ok with you being around because I’m not actively screaming and showing displeasure at your presence.”If you’re allergic to cats, learn some cat body language so you stop accidentally inviting cats for a snuggle when you actually want them to avoid you. I used to tell my friends that if you wanted the cat to avoid you, step one was to yell “KITTY!” and come running at her and try to pick her up without her permission. Et voila, the cat now wants nothing to do with you. They never believed me for some reason.

England, Facts, and Food: Sixteen Films & Ken Loach @KenLoachSixteen Followv #1 Danie!Blake "I am not a client, a customer, nor a service user. I am not a r, a scrounger, a beggar nor a thief. I am not a national insurance number, nor a blip on a screen. I paid my dues, never a penny short, and was proud to do so. I don't tug the forelock but look my neighbour in the eye. I don't accept or seek charity My name is Daniel Blake, I am a man, not a dog. As such I demand my rights. I demand you treat me with respect. I, Daniel Blake, am a citizen, nothing more, nothing less. Thank you." a. Dr Lauren Gavaghan Followv DancingTheMind A England: homelessness up 60% since 2010 A rough sleeping up 134% ▲ 1.2 mill people on social housing wait list Food bank use up 4-fold since 2012 now 2,000 food banks in UK, up from just 29 at height of financial crisis #UNVisit2018 #IDanie!Blake is fact, not fiction. Dr Lauren Gavaghan Fllow DancingTheMind For anyone who doubts how realistic #IDanielBlake is, I urge a re-read of the 2018 UK poverty report by Prof Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights & poverty. It speaks volumes on the cruelty of this Conservative govt. @JamesCleverly you may want a refresher INT liiA Dr Lauren Gavaghan Ф @DancingTheMind Dear anyone who thinks they will vote Conservative when we have a #General Election please read the below report from UN Rapporteur on extreme poverty & human rights before you cast your vote.... Show this thread thasminlove: politicalsci: If anyone hasn’t watched ‘I, Daniel Blake’, it’s on BBC iPlayer for the next 18 days or so. Please do watch it if you can. It’s a film about ordinary, lovely, kind British people who due to unfortunate circumstances beyond their control have to claim benefits, and struggle through the system. It explores their lives and the benefit system in a realistic, humane way, and sticks to the facts. This happens to thousands of people across the UK regularly, and, as you will see, is completely inhumane. Be prepared with tissues.
