Yes, we know that no amount of words can define the cuteness of a cat but their bleps might!
Although it is an undeniable fact that cats are almost perfect in every way but there’s one thing which simply makes us go all gaga over them, their bleps! Cats are known to possess a long list of unique and beautiful features which makes them appear the cutest of all. Let’s start with those eyes, those enchanting eyes. They have the largest eyes as compared to all the mammals, in relation to their body size, of course. Next, those adorable ears which literally move like a radar trying to catch the frequencies. Then comes the teeth, their nose, the paws… like all this cuteness cannot be defined in words, simply.
But today we are going to be highlighting one of their most unique and cutest feature which is blep. Oh my, our tiny hearts just melt when we see our cats blep. For those of you who are not familiar with what a blep is, it’s an act of extending the tongue beyond the lips without opening the mouth completely. But as cute as it appears, some people wonder why does their cats blep so often? Are they thirsty? Are they hungry? Is their jaw okay? A cat owner would assume all sorts of possibilities but luckily, we do have an explanation for it.
According to an animal behaviour consultant who goes by the name of Amy Shojai explains that blepping is the way cats would get familiar with their surroundings. They use their sense of taste to get familiar with the environment. A cat will mostly blep while they try to investigate a new scent which could be of other cats. We bet you were not aware of it, were you? Now, let’s jump back to how cute they look while they blep and for those of you who haven’t seen a cat blepping before, you are about to faint by the amount of cuteness you are going to witness in the pictures that we have gathered for you.
So, are you ready? Start scrolling!

But hey, there’s another reason why your cat might blep! That’s simply because they know we like it and they end up getting a lot of attention and affection when they do that! So, they are most likely to associate blepping with good things and that would make them blep more than the usual as doing it provides positive feedback from us! Now, let’s get back to the cute pictures, shall we?

We have reached the end of this post and our minds are still trying to comprehend the cuteness that we just witnessed! How perfect these little creatures are! There’s not a single thing which we don’t like about them other than some cats being really moody and bossy, maybe? But it would be unfair to say that we dislike that quality too. I would love to let my cat boss around me! What about you? Does your cat blep? Let us know into the comments section below.
