17 Heart-Melting Photos of Cats Making ‘Puppy Dog Eyes’


You’ve undoubtedly heard of puppy dog eyes — the canine facial expression in which a cute dog looks like he will cry if he doesn’t get what it wants. Well, as adorable as they can be, we think it’s time to pay homage to the kitty equivalent, the sad cat eyes.

Our beloved kitties are highly expressive animals —they smile, they hate baths, and they too know what they want. When we see a kitty making sad cat eyes, we almost instantly feel the need to turn that cat frown upside down by giving them whatever he or she may need. 

We can’t deny the satisfaction that comes from making our adorable felines feel okay again. Although not all cats smile quite like humans when they’re better, they do show us signs of kitty affection, like purrs and cheek rubs that put our minds at ease once again. Those sad cat eyes get us every time!
