This cat thinks you're good looking and winks to prove it! So smooth! Everyone who gets told by a cat that she finds them good enough to look at should consider themselves lucky at least!

Anyone who has ever kept a cat as an animal companion will tell you that they have seen their feline furbabies blink at them a couple of times over their lifespans. It may look like seductive blink, or a scoff, but since cats can be quite ambiguous in the manner, learning to interpret their body language is the first step towards building a healthy, profound relationship with your cat.

Wondering what your cat is saying to you? First of all, fun fact: cats are only vocal with their human companions, but they also use a variety of signals in the posture of their body and facial expressions to convey a message to their hairless buddies. Cat lingo might be like the Klingon language to some of you, difficult to understand and harder to decipher still.

But all those signs mean something for your cat and being able to at least guess them will give you a happy kitty. One of those profoundly confusing signals is the slow blink. When a cat greets another cat or a person with slow, languid blinks, it's communicating affection. Why? Because in the feline world, closing one’s eyes in the presence of another is the ultimate sign of trust.

So next time you see Captain Whiskers blinking slowly in your general direction, blink slowly at him too, to tell him you are aware of his presence and pose him no threat.
