Who knew communicating with your cat could go beyond human words?
A team of researchers have found evidence that cat’s version of a smile or kind gesture is through “slow blinking”. It apparently makes cats more receptive to humans and enhances your bond with your cat.
“The team of researchers, led by Dr. Tasmin Humphrey at the University of Sussex, recently published their research in the journal Scientific Reports. In the paper, which comes via Science Alert, the researchers describe how they arrived at their conclusion. And it was by—you guessed it—comparing the way cats respond to people blinking slowly versus displaying a neutral face,” mentioned by Nerdist.
