Cats make the biggest face when they yawn.
Except when sometimes it goes wrong.
Cricket yawning. Photoshop doodle.
When the kitten yawns, she looks positively fiendish. I am not kidding, the face she makes straddles the line between disturbingly cute and disturbingly otherworldly. Do cats usually not close their eyes when they yawn? I think Rook closes his eyes when he yawns. Maybe Cricket is some sorta changeling.
Cats' yawns take up their whole head, their whole face.
The Deftones knew that. Hence what was on the cover for their 1995 single "Bored."
Here's the video for that song.
And the next time a cat yawns near you... watch.
