Based on his body language, he looks like he’s a bit annoyed by his owner, but it’s quite clear he’s asleep sitting up. However, he appears to be indulging the owner as if trying to maintain his composure. As she continues to talk in an effort to gain his attention, he finally opens his eyes. Once she sees he’s paying attention, she tells him the shocking news that he’s adopted, reports RARE. He immediately becomes wide-eyed as if he understands what her announcement means! Then, the camera shuts off.
