Intelligent, and piercing, cats eyes tell us more about their personalities than all their behaviours combined. How many times have you encountered a cat, pet or feral that seem to read your mind when they look at you.
They don’t drop their gaze like dogs, they hold their ground and let you know they’re not intimidated. Cats have the ability to stare you down, give you a disapproving look and train you to attend to them. Give them a cat food they like, a post to scratch and a place to call home, and the average cat will still be free at heart.
