Scientists Find A Way To Attracts Cat's Attention
By admin - October 11, 2020

Psychologists have studied dozens of cats with good eyesight. Scientists have observed the reactions of cats to the slow blink of an eye by humans in two different experiments. The researchers defined “slow blinking of the eyes” as “a series of half-blinks followed by prolonged blinking or closing of the eye.”

Cats were more likely to blink their eyes when their owner grinned slowly than when they did not interact. According to research, when cats are slowly blinking their eyes at a stranger to their cats, it is more likely that fluffy cats will be interested and approach them.

Scientists involved in the study think that these experiments prove that cats consider the slow blink of an eye from humans as a sign of goodwill – whether it is their owner or a stranger.

In the first experiment, 14 owners of 21 cats were asked to slowly close their eyes to their cats while they were at home. Then, when each cat was placed in a designated place, the owner sat no more than one meter away from them and either slowly blinked his cat’s eyes or left it completely unattended.

24 cats participated in this experiment, and the cat owners were replaced by people unknown to the cats. Strangers similarly tried to get the cat’s attention – with a slow blink of an eye or a neutral expression on the face and a lack of eye contact. A slower flicker had a better effect on the neutral look.

Given a small sample of research, obviously more research is needed to understand how cats feel when they see a slow flicker. Until then, you can test this theory for yourself and roll your cat’s eyes!
