Sad cat eyes are among the most riveting sights in the world. As we all know, our beloved kitties are highly expressive animals in general. From heartwarming photos of smiling cats to pictures of felines hating baths, there's plenty of evidence that these precious furballs always have something on their minds. As any cat owner knows, these little darlings want to let us know exactly what they're thinking at all times.
Considering how mysterious kitties can be, it's easy for certain messages to get lost in translation when it comes to cat-human communication. But one universal message is nearly impossible to miss: the kitty-cat eyes. And yes, you know exactly which eyes we're talking about here. Over the years, you've undoubtedly heard many times about puppy-dog eyes — the famous canine facial expression in which a cute dog looks like it will cry if it doesn't get what it wants soon. Well, as adorable as puppy-dog eyes can be, we think it's about time that we pay homage to the kitty equivalent of that face — with adorable and convincingly sad cat eyes. It seems like every cat has that same utterly compelling look, ready to tug on all of our heartstrings when we least expect it.
You see, sad cat eyes are powerful enough to shift our entire mood for the day. When we see a kitty trying to get our attention in such a manner, we almost instantly feel the urgent need to turn that cat frown upside down. And we can't deny the satisfaction that comes from making our adorable felines feel OK again. Although not all cats smile quite like others when they're feeling better, they can still show us the classic signs of kitty affection so our minds can finally be at ease once again. But up until that point, these sad cat eyes can get whatever it is that they want from us. (Well, almost anything!)
