In case you’re curious about how people in China say the word cat, you might be interested in the above YouTube video. In Mandarin, cat is pronounced “mao” and the Chinese character looks like a claw, which probably means cats clawed up more than one Chinese person over the years before they finally associated that symbol with a cat.

Not coincidentally, mao sounds like the former Chinese dictator, Mao Zedong. So if you ever want to know what the world might look like if cats truly ruled over all of us, just think of communist China.
