someone told me once that “blink blink” is cat for “I love you”

I’m sure this is total bullshit but i choose to believe it.

cats are hardcore man. instead of going, “i love you,” or whatever, they’re just like, “YOU ARE NEITHER MY ENEMY NOR MY PREY AND I THUS ALLOW YOU TO BE IN MY UNGUARDED PRESENCE.”

Also, this is why cats will apparently unerringly home in on the person in the room who is afraid of cats.

Humans who are afraid of something tend to blink slowly and look away. Cats read that as “He wants to be my friend.”
