Why Do Cats Make a Funny Face?

You may occasionally notice your cat making a strange face – a lip-curling grimace with the mouth half open, a wrinkled nose, and a raised chin. The look is usually accompanied by a hypnotic stare, appearing as if the cat is mesmerized. This response is known as Flehmen. You may find it somewhat disconcerting, but fear not, your cat only makes this face when he wants to get a better smell of something in the air, usually the pheromonal odor of another cat.

Cats Get Heartworm Too

A few years after graduating from the University of Mississippi’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2000, Cherie Buisson, DVM, became acquainted with feline heartworm disease.
 

Buisson was working at a small-animal practice when a couple brought in their one-year-old, neutered, indoors-only cat. He was dead on arrival. Buisson conducted a necropsy and found four to five worms in his heart.
 

“I was shocked,” says Buisson, now the director of veterinary services for the Tampa Bay SPCA in Florida. “He was perfectly healthy up to that point. I’m certain that’s what killed him. [We’d known about feline heartworm], but it wasn’t until this instance that it really hit home with me. I realized that we needed to push for prevention.”
