The easiest way to befriend your cat, according to science | Society

If your cat avoids you, is distant and behaves as if you are not interested (probably normal, we already know them), science provides a way to generate a closer bond with the pet.

How? Simple: squinting with a slow blink. A study carried out by psychologists from the Universities of Portsmouth and Sussex, in England, determined that this action, known as the “cat smile”, is the best way to obtain the confidence of the feline.

As they concluded in the investigation, which was published in the magazine Nature Scientific Reports, this would make humans more attractive to the animal because it is assimilated to a genuine smile (known in the academic world as a Duchenne smile).

The results come after conducting two experiments led by specialists Dr. Tasmin Humphrey and Professor Karen McComb.

The first of them found that cats are more likely to blink slowly at their owners, when they have previously done so.

The second, which did not involve the owners, revealed that the animal is capable of taking more confidence and approaching an outstretched hand when they have previously blinked slowly.

The study sums it up like this:

“one. Cats were more likely to blink slowly at their owners if their owners blinked slowly, compared to when the owner was present in the room but did not emit a slow blink stimulus.

2. Cats were more likely to blink slowly when looked at by an unknown experimenter, compared to when they had maintained a neutral expression.

3. Cats preferred to approach an experimenter after having blinked slowly at the cat, rather than the latter if they had maintained a neutral expression ”.

“It’s great to be able to show that cats and humans can communicate in this way. It is something that many cat owners had already suspected, so it is exciting to have found evidence of it, “he said in a release McComb, an academic at the University of Sussex School of Psychology.

He added that “it is something that you can try yourself with your own cat at home, or with cats you find on the street. It is an excellent way to improve the bond you have with cats ”. He further advised “squinting at them as you would with a relaxed smile, followed by closing your eyes for a couple of seconds. You will see that they respond in the same way and you can start a kind of conversation ”.

“Our findings could potentially be used to assess the well-being of cats in a variety of settings, including veterinary practices and shelters,” Humphrey detailed.

He explained that “it could be argued that cats developed slow blinking behaviors because humans perceived slow blinking as a positive thing. Cats may have learned that humans are rewarded for responding to slow blinking. “

“It is also possible that the slow blinking in cats began as a way to interrupt an uninterrupted gaze, which is potentially threatening in social interaction,” he closed.
