What Do Cats Eyes Tell You?

Cats’ eyes are beautiful and amazing! Did you know that the eyes of a cat play an important role in cat’s language? The more you understand about how the cat’s eyes function, the more you will be able to understand your cat.

Here are a few interesting things about what the eyes of your cat tell you:

– The pupil of the cat eye indicates emotional state. A narrow pupil can indicate anger or irritation, while a wide open pupil is indicative of fear or excitement.

– Cats smile at us and other cat friends with appreciative eyes by squinting. Sometimes your cat will slowly close her eyes and reopen them while looking at you. When almost closed, the eyes are held at the lowest point for a second. You can answer her by gently squinting back, mimicking the cat’s pattern. Your cat will appreciate this!

– If your cat closes her eyes all the way for more than a split second, that means she has absolute trust in you.
