How do you communicate with your cat? Looking over at Lily standing on the kitchen stool today, I slowly blinked my eyes and smiled at her. She immediately noticed and blinked her eyes repeatedly. We were giving each other a hug with our eyes. Now, I have a very special relationship with this cat and I think she is more in tune with me than the others but when she does this, it always floors me.
Try this on your kitty ... Sit across from your cat about 2or 3 feet. Have eye contact and smile. Now blink your eyes once slowly and keep staring at the cat. Blink 3 times slowly. Sometimes it works immediately that the cat will blink back. If it doesn't it may still approach you for a pat as this is a very non-threatening gesture. If it doesn't respond the first time, try again the next day.
Others have told me that they communicate through the eyes with their cats. I just love to hear this because I think it is a wonderful way to make your cat feel safe and loved.
