Ranging from the smug to the foolish and the all-out cute, these smiling cats will certainly improve your day, no matter how awesome or tough it’s been.

We also all know cats are mysterious, so where do their smiles come from? Strangely enough, the ones on their faces aren’t true smiles, as their facial muscles are not the same as humans.  More often than not, your kitty will express happiness via the obvious purring, closing their eyes, and relaxing their head backwards.

Anyway, we’d love to hear which of our grinning moggies are your favourites, and as always, feel free to submit your own examples of cat smiles and happiness!

Is this something your friend's cat has always done? If it's something that's recently started, your friend should probably take this little furball to the vet, because it can indicate pain. (Tooth issue, jaw issue, stress, or other issues)
