This is from the comments on this youtube page where an infant is cuddling with a bemused cat.
The commentator is writing on how cute the scene is. I am having trouble figuring out some of the subjects (which can be hard for students of japanese). If anyone would care to point out the subjects or correct my attempt at a very loose translation, it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm having the most trouble in figuring out the first line. (The numbers only indicate the lines):
- To see these two growing up together would be so moving. (for me the speaker)
- Look at this laid back cat just living together like its nothing,
- snuggling up with so much love, must have been doing that for a long time. (for it to have been so comfortable)
- At this level I'd like to call him Mr. Cat, or even Prof. Cat. (superior cat)
So in line 1, I'm having trouble understanding who this これを大きくなってから applies to. I'm guessing it's the kid and cat growing up together, not the writer growing up. Also in line 4, perhaps the writer is saying this:
"Mr. Cat, at this level I'd like to call you Prof. Cat ((superior cat))"
I know senpai doesn't relate to professor, but I just chose something someone might say in English. Also, does と呼びたくなる mean the speaker (him/herself) wants to call the cat senpai, or does the speaker want the cat to be called senpai by all in general? (First person versus third person plural.)
