It's a pretty well-known fact that cats are the unapologetic jerks we all want to be. They do what they want to do, they accept the love they want to accept, and they will scratch you to pieces if you touch them in a spot where they don't want to be touched.

It's a truth that hasn't escaped 10-year-old Gabi, who wrote out an "interview" she had with her cat Coco. Her dad, Paul Duane, posted the interview to Twitter so everyone can see just how much Coco means business.

With as many stories of sexual assault and harassment as have been coming out lately, it's an important reminder that consent is actually really simple to understand. So simple that everyone, especially grown men, should understand the idea that you should ask someone, even a cat, before entering their personal space — whether that's by touching them, or by exposing yourself, or by making a sexual advance.
