None of our cats has ever had that silent barf reaction to a strange smell. I wonder why.
They all did the open-mouth thing, but that’s because cats have Jacobsen’s organs and we don’t. When they make that face, it’s because they’re using that sense to evaluate a smell.
But that business of making like the dinner you just put down for them is a lot of poop that has to be buried, toot-sweet–not very subtle, is it?
