oh my grandkitty Sheldon gets that same look!! sometimes i swear he does not know i am not a cat and he is flirting with me!!
Nell will get a look of bliss on her face, too, but when she looks at me to tell me she loves me (well at least this is what i think she is saying) she slowly closes her eyes several times, and i do the same thing back- then she purrs up a storm and throws herself down on my neck.
me saying Nell i can't breeb, does not help any to get her off my neck!
i just try to pet her vigorously so that she is moved to a spot that does not close off my airway!
my old blind deaf boy Snoopy (gone a year now) ALWAYS looked like he was smiling
he was such a sweet boy. the only way you could tell if he was not feeling well was to look at the area around his eyes, he would furrow his brow if he was sick or wanted to be left alone.
but that smile never left his face.
with him, i think it was mostly his markings, not a real smile.
when he was very relaxed and content, his mouth would relax too, and look more like a grin.
