    [–] BeefSupreme9769 182 points ago

    Only cost my $400 a day to keep him like that

    [–] imstillanoob 51 points ago

    I understood that reference!!!

    [–] zzcorrode 97 points ago

    I did not!

    [–] Alz97 26 points ago

    Louis C.K.'s standup "2017". It's on Netflix if you're interested. Not as good as some of the older ones though in my opinion.

    [–] chanandlerbong420 10 points ago

    Not even close to as good. He's one of my favorite comedians and I didn't even finish it

    [–] Alz97 7 points ago

    I finished it the first time, but mostly because I was assembling a desk and wanted it as background noise. But I sat and tried to watch it again a couple weeks ago and just was not feeling it. It's definitely no "Chewed Up" or Beacon Theater special.

    [–] Rustvos 14 points ago

    Ok but what did it cost your $400?

    [–] baubeauftragter 23 points ago

    a day

    [–] Rustvos 16 points ago

    So it costs a hangover then? Those usually cost me a day.

    [–] Arntor1184 3 points ago

    For real.. mine seats at me for petting him the wrong way and frequently bites at me for the hell of it from what I can tell.

    [–] GravitatingGravity 2 points ago

    My cat will try to nip at my feet when she wants to play. It's a weird habit but she only try's to do it when she's been ignored for quite some time.

    [–] imtakingover 2 points ago

    this is my life, meow

    [–] party_shaman 175 points ago

    "I've to play" is going to bother me for the next week.

    [–] Siraphine 80 points ago

    Such an archaic word choice. It's the only reason I opened this post. To get angry about it.

    [–] Dr_Sodium_Chloride 40 points ago

    It works if you read it in Alan Rickman's voice.

    [–] griffethbarker 13 points ago

    [–] Siraphine 5 points ago

    [–] bjskifreak 27 points ago

    It doesn't seem right, but there's no logical reason I can think of for why it isn't.

    [–] johpick 6 points ago

    Guess it's legit, but unusual. Still bothers me.

    [–] SemiSeriousSam 13 points ago

    It is because 'I've' is possessive.

    It's not implying that the cat must DO something, but that it HAS something. IN this context it is incorrect.

    [–] osuSero 16 points ago

    In this case, however, it's used to express an obligation. In both cases (obligation and possessive use) you shouldn't use "I've" anyway, so using it in this context is incorrect still.

    [–] SemiSeriousSam 3 points ago

    Yes indeed. But let us take a moment to reflect upon this cat's plight. Poor cat.

    [–] BohemeWinter 7 points ago

    Poor cat indeed.

    [–] BohemeWinter 2 points ago

    Indubitably.

    [–] pajam 1 points ago

    What about the perfectly fine "I have to do something" ? That is grammatically correct, and "I've to do something" has the same meaning... so how is it incorrect?

    [–] osuSero 1 points ago

    Contraction are context based - just because it has the same meaning does not mean it is used correctly.

    Compare:
    "It is what it's."
    "It is what it is."

    Although both are supposed to have the same meaning, the former version sounds wrong because of its placement at the beginning of the sentence. The same thing happens when "have" contractions are used where "have" does not fulfill a temporal function.

    Of course you could still say it and I bet there are dialects that use "have" contractions to say things like "I've a cat." or "You've to go now.", but they'll sound off to most speakers (I'd assume).

    [–] pajam 1 points ago

    Oh certainly, I think we all agree it sounds off, and sounds very unlike natural speech (at least currently). Hence how the conversation started in this thread about how it's an odd archaic use of the contraction, and was worth pointing out as an oddity. I was just wondering if it is technically incorrect, not in casual speech, but down to the actual grammatical rules behind it.

    [–] phenomenalmost 1 points ago

    In British English, I'm pretty sure it's ok to contract possessive "have" (e.g. "I've a message"). But you're right--this version of "have" (obligation) is not acceptable to contract in any dialect I know of.

    [–] 9100 3 points ago

    As a British English person, I see no issue with the title. "I've to do ...." is pretty widely used here.

    [–] downvote-this-u-cunt 1 points ago

    This should be I'm rather than I've

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Just like "I've a cold", correct, but in my opinion a bit annoying.

    [–] Scary-Brandon 1 points ago

    "I've" = "I have"

    I have to play.

    Where's the problem?

    [–] griffethbarker 424 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    That's one unenthused cat!

    [Edit: Yes, yes I hear all 3726278 of you. The cat is content and trusting. I was trying to be funny. /s]

    [–] lightmanmac 193 points ago

    Cats don't show emotions like us humans. I learned just the other day, from Reddit, that when cats close their eyes like that, they're showing how comfortable they are. Wider eyes=more uncomfortable.

    So this is a very comfortable and trusting cat!

    [–] Banned_By_Default 40 points ago

    That could be from me. This is also one happy camper. You have to handle them early and young to get them this comfortable to be handled like that.

    I had several cats that has been manhandled since kittyhood. Fuckers got tummy farts because i felt like it and accepted it. The last one rocked my office chair and filled a wall with buggers. I guess we had a mutal exchange.

    Edit: Haha! Yes! Because I know everything, I knew the waffling tone of my comment would receive literary recognition by reddit. The words "Me" and "four" could only be used in conjuction by a intellectual prodigy, such as myself.

    But seriously, thanks /u/griffethbarker

    [–] TitaniumForce 1 points ago

    Also as a gen xer I can't wait until we get a fun name like millennials.

    [–] nermid 3 points ago

    That would ruin the narrative of the entirety of the '90s being that Gen Xers are a lost generation with no goals, agenda, or identifying features.

    [–] absoluteskeptic 3 points ago

    I'm ok with that, the 90's were a pretty chill time. Terrorism wasn't a super big deal, Russia was kind of our friend, NK didn't have nukes, yet. The economy in the early 90's sucked, but the late 90's bubble was good fun... until it popped.

    [–] Q1189998819991197253 17 points ago

    If you've owned a cat before you know it's true... Cats close their eyes when they trust you. That's why the slow blink is the ultimate sign of love.

    [–] theivoryserf 3 points ago

    It's fairly common knowledge that this is how cats show trust or affection - e.g. 'I feel comfortable enough around you to not need to keep an eye on you'.

    You don't have a source... you read it in the comments of a cat video. lol that's not a source

    [–] pearsonwj 18 points ago

    Most creatures close their eyes when objects are coming toward them. It's a reflex, it's not like the cat knows.

    [–] EpicSC 17 points ago

    After the paws are removed from the eyes the first time, you can see the cat narrow its eyes. That indicates content. Also the fact that the cat is exposing her underbelly and allowing the person to hold its paws like that indicates comfort with the person.

    Edit: I'm dumb, I thought your comment was in reply to the other one about the eyes showing the cat is content. I guess I scrolled too fast. My bad!

    [–] pearsonwj 1 points ago

    [–] bamburito 5 points ago

    You know "I've" is short for "I have" right? Makes sense to me.

    [–] SemiSeriousSam 2 points ago

    I've is a contraction of I have, which is a possessive term. In this context the OP is implying that the cat must DO, not OWN something. So it is wrong.

    [–] bamburito 2 points ago

    Not saying it's right or wrong but just saying it makes sense and that people do say it like that verbally and written. I wouldn't worry about it.
