What are "Cat Kisses"?

We give a "cat kiss" with the slow blink of our eyes.

As below, with Tristan, before the lower lids would start to pull up into the distinctive cat kiss squint.

Many people would look at this intent gaze and think there is angry or "mean" intent in the cat, when they are actually trying to engage our attention.

Cats have just as many facial expressions as people do. We only have to learn what they are.

Here, in RJ, we are almost at the fully closed eyes, which then get squeezed shut to show how much they care.
