A woman in the Anhui capital of Hefei has recently been showing off her cat’s ability to “speak Chinese.”
The woman claims that she has communicated with her cat for a long time and that he can understand simple emotions and language and can respond appropriately.
As evidence, the woman has shown off two interactions with her pet. In the first clip, she asks the cat, “Do you love me?” and the cats responds “love (ài).”
While in the second, she asks, “Are you tired?” and the cat groans “tired (lèi).”
In case you’re not impressed by this feline’s linguistic skills and feel like you speak better Mandarin than it does, know that the cat is also an expert mouse catcher, so it still has one up on you.

“All lives matter. We stand firmly with our African friends. We strongly oppose all forms of racial discrimination and inflammatory expressions of racism and hatred.”
While China obviously has its own issues with racial and ethnic discrimination, it’s also notable that Hua adopts the “All Lives Matter” slogan often used by those opposed to “Black Lives Matter” movement to dismiss the kind of systemic discrimination and oppression of African Americans that protesters are currently in the street demonstrating against. …

The shares are worth a whopping $3.29 billion.
Following the transfer, Yuan holds about a 24 percent stake in Kangtai, though she has signed over her voting rights to her ex-husband.
Kangtai is a Chinese vaccine-maker which got listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 2017 and has seen its stocks surge this year after announcing its intentions to develop a Covid-19 vaccine. …
