Cat facial expressions: pain and discomfort — 2 Comments

  1. Very good piece Michael, a really helpful intro to emotional expression. I wonder if it is only we humans who moan and grizzle about pain? Both prey and predator can appear hugely stoic. I do wonder if stoicism is an essential to survival?

    • Certainly humans seem to tolerate pain less well than animals and certainly cats. Some people use pain to get sympathy. The victim culture. This is turning it on its head.
