    Wink Can Kitties Kiss? Just Look into Their Eyes ...

    Can Kitties Kiss? Just Look into Their Eyes ... - Think Like a Cat by Pam Johnson-Bennett on Yahoo! Pets

    You may or may not be aware of cat kisses, but they're something cat lovers have talked about for years. Some believe in them and some don't. I happen to be a believer in the ever-subtle -- but extremely endearing -- cat kiss.

    If you're envisioning your favorite feline puckering up and planting a whisker-tickling smooch on your cheek, you're on the wrong track. A cat kiss is actually a very slow blink of the cat's eyelids.

    Cat kisses are given to other cats, and to some lucky humans. It's usually reserved for a companion with whom the cat is familiar and friendly. You can even return a cat kiss with your own slow blink.
    The next time you're sitting on the couch and your kitty is relaxed on the chair across the room, pay close attention -- because she may be offering a cat kiss. Her posture will be relaxed with her facial muscles also relaxed. Her eyelids will ever-so-gently close and reopen. You've just been kissed!

    Don't attempt cat kisses with unfamiliar cats or ones who are stressed and anxious. You don't want to offer a direct stare to an unhappy or conflicted kitty. Reserve cat kisses for those relaxed and happy moments with the cats in your life.

    When my first child was a baby, I would exchange cat kisses with my cats while I was busy bottle-feeding my daughter. I believe it helped my cats feel connected to me while I was occupied doing things in which they couldn't participate.

    Have you been kissed today?

    I'm not sure whether my cat is kissing me or is just sleepy. Help!

    aww, how adorable.
    My cat actually rubs her nose on my chin like she is really kissing me. She does it to my husband too. It's so sweet.
    Thanks for sharing this, it's too cute.

    I get these from my Newton. Kepler, however, never blinks. Never. Blinks.

    It scares me.

    One local kitty gave my dog a kiss. Henry (the dog) looked SO SURPRISED, then backed off, got in a play stance, and barked.

    Cats are so much more sophisticated....

    Aw my princess butts her head into my lips, those are our kisses.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I wink at cats I don't know, I heard it was a form of greeting to them. Funnily enough, they normally wink or blink back. Problem is, I find myself doing it to babies too- I guess their unblinking eyes remind me a bit of cats.

    I'll have to watch my cat to see if she blinks at me. My cat kisses me by
    poking her nose at my cheek and then she opens and closes her mouth
    making a smacking sound. I swear this is true, I am not a crazy cat lady.

    My cat comes up and presses his nose against my nose...thats always what i considered his little kisses....

    and my other cat comes up and ever so slightly licks my forehead.
    Dramatically overdramatic
