Pictures of the saddest cat

Luhu has been around for a while now so this is not news. I was looking for some interesting pictures of cats and of course Luhu qualifies. It is hard to imagine a domestic cat looking sadder but is she sad? No, I am sure she is not. It is a misleading facial expression. It is a permanent facial expression which means that it can’t be a true facial expression reflecting her emotions.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

If Luhu had this facial expression from time to time that would tell us it reflected feelings (maybe). But a fixed expression cannot. It is a logical conclusion. A fact. I think everyone is aware of this. I don’t need to go over it again do I? Domestic cats have extremely subtle facial expressions. It can he hard to detect and interpret them. Pain does result in a pinched face. It is noticeable.

Luhu is like Grumpy cat in that way. She was permanently grumpy not because she was genuinely grumpy. I guess everyone realises that. Don’t they?!

I have gone on too long. As to pedigree, it seems that Luhu is a British Shorthair grey tabby. She lives in Beijing, China. Her human caretaker is Maggie Liu. She is a celebrity cat, of course. We all know that too. She has found fame on Instagram and other social media sites.

Advice to aspiring young persons who want to be famous: find a cat with a strange facial expression and get to work on Instagram. You’ll become vicariously famous via your cat. ‘Vicariously’ means through or via someone else.

    • Cats do have facial expressions but they can be subtle and are usually linked to suffering from discomfort, pain and acute pain. ‘Sad’ cats are often cats with a facial anatomy which gives the impression they are sad.
