Angels with Furry Faces

I read somewhere that cats have more facial muscles than we do, and consequently a wide range of facial expressions. (Was it Skeleton Men of Jupiter? I don’t remember.) But being human, we can’t accurately read most of those expressions.

But my cat Missy did have a particularly indignant expression that anyone could read. It was mostly for her brother, Buster. He ignored it at his peril.

If you’ve ever tried to sell a cat school supplies, you’ll know what I mean.

  1. Cats seem to have a greater sense of self than any other creature I can think of. They know who they are, what they are feeling, and why they feel that way. Some of those faces are for the record books. 🙂
