Courteous Cat Says 'Hello' To Everyone Who Visits Her
An elderly black cat is all about courtesy, when a shelter worker recorded the feline meowing what is a very discernible “hello”. She is 16-year-old Ruby, a black cat that has been the resident of Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary in Edenfield, Lancashire, for six weeks.
She shocked volunteers at the shelter one day, when she gave them a greeting no other cat has been heard to give. The volunteer whipped out her phone just in time to record the quirky cat’s greeting and later posted it on the shelter’s Facebook page.
In the clip, the volunteer can be heard gently tapping on the glass door of Ruby’s enclosure, to which the cat gives a faint meow. But when the woman says “hello”, the cat lifts her head, faces the camera and repeats the woman’s greeting with a very distinctive “hello” back! What?
The volunteer teases the cat further, repeating her “hello” and surely enough, Ruby follows suit. Even when the woman says “hiya”, the feline maintains her courteous disposition. Mind your manner, young woman!
The shelter’s manager Karen Weed says Ruby is truly one of a kind. She says the resident is very friendly and loves having a conversation with the staff. She stunned volunteers at the shelter after appearing to say “hello” when they would talk to her. “It was a bit of shock really. We've had talking cats before, but not one like Ruby.”
