Kim Silva was a teacher in American School For The Deaf. She herself has hearing loss, taught her cats to understand sign language. She also knew that one of her cats has hearing loss, so she trained them so they’d be ready! Incredibly, her cats can understand more that you think they can! She can tell her cats to stay through sign language and the sweet part is, her cats understand when she wants to dance! All her cats were adopted and she have been teaching all three of them sign language! I must say, these are smart cats! Click the video below and watch how this lady communicates to her cat through sign language!

This video is really impressive! I can’t imagine how hard it is to train these cats to understand sign language since most of our pets are trained through our voice commands! Now that’s amazing! Please leave us a comment and share to us how you train your cats!
