In cool cats and kittens news, this is a video of caracal kitten Kora at the Wild Cat Conservation Center in New South Wales, Australia demonstrating her absolutely perfect ear flick. Apparently caracals actually use their tufted ears to communicate with each other. And, as someone who just watched the video somewhere between twenty and thirty times, I can honestly say Kora here also communicated with me — directly with my heart. It’s seriously glowing like E.T.’s right now. Should I phone home?! “You can try, but we’re not going to answer.” Dad! “Thank God for caller ID.” Mom!
Keep going for the brief video in both Instagram and Twitter forms.
