    Drunken Thread [Animals]

    A bit of a drunken thread here people but I find it quite interesting, I have a cat and I've always wondered why cats or dogs don't smile or even laugh? After all, they cry, with a facial expression and they frown with a facial expression. I understand that they do show happiness, but not with a facial expression (mostly by wagging their tail?). Cats and dogs have feelings, they do show their dignity in various ways (my cat shows her dignity by placing birds on the doorstep). They sneeze, they cough, they get ill etc etc. They're not much different from humans...

    Also, why do we have 6 muscles in each ear and a cat has 32 muscles in each ear? What's going on there?

    Is there any Veterinarians in here? .....

    cats rely on their ears a lot more for hunting so their muscles have not devolved like ours have, because as a species we have long relied on sight for hunting and then later agriculture.

    Have you ever told a cat or dog a joke that they understand?

    I made a donkey laugh once, with a very donkey specific joke - I've witnesses too

    id say cats/dogs can smile...well in a way....with pets ive had you can tell wether they are happy/unhappy by looking at them, mainly its in their eyes rather than mouths as we make see a smile but if you covered your mouth and smiled people would tell by the rest of your facial expression, same as you can with cats/dogs....

    but what on earth made you think about it?

    Mark - Interesting information, I've never looked at it from that kind of perspective.

    Geoff - I can honestly say I haven't told a joke to my cat, It would be.....strange. How's that one work?

    Andy - My cat was trying to steal my burger earlier this evening and I kept moving it, you know, from A to B, and I was smiling and laughing but she wasn't, that's what made me think. Strange I know....

    Simple you need to think of a joke that a cat (being a cat) can relate too

    a cats form of smiling is when they squint their eyes at you
