Sometimes my cats will get a whiff of something outside on the ground, or on the carpet, or on the linoleum. They smell it for a few seconds and then they lift their heads up, and their mouth opens a tiny bit, making a face like they are disgusted. Whenever me or my kids see this, it cracks us right up because of the face they make. Someone once told me that they are sensing a smell through a special gland in or near their pallet, and it is normal for them to do this, to make that type of face. But IMO it is hilarious looking. I can never get a pic of it because you almost never know when they are going to do it Does anybody know exactly what that behavior is? Or does anybody have a pic of their cat doing this?
