Experts insist that our cats don't smile. In fact, they say the characteristics that resemble smiling are signs of the exact opposite: "Cats have the muscular ability to make facial expressions that resemble smiling, but it's nothing to do with happiness! ... This behaviour is characterised by curled lips, a tilted head and squinting eyes – all of which can look like smiling."
It wasn't that long ago one adorable cat in particular went to the beach and looked absolutely furious about the whole thing, but it turned out the cat actually loved the beach. Now today we're seeing a cat whose owners say absolutely adores the beach but has facial expressions that may suggest otherwise.
A couple was enjoying the beach when they noticed a kitty, chillin in the sand with her human. When they approached the cat, they saw that the cat seems to be ecstatic about something, and asked the owner about the reason.
"Cat owner says it's her first time going to the beach," Semsema Mahmoud said in her Facebook post. As it turns out, the kitty's owner let her play on the beach for the first time, and she was so delighted about it that she just couldn't stop grinning.
We're asking the cat experts (that's you,) what do you think?
They say laughter and happiness are contagious, and we certainly hope that’s true. We definitely need that during the world's current situation.
