Feline Grimace Scale

Ran into this earlier today on CBC radio........Quirks and Quarks......

A new tool invented in Montreal for vets allowing them to read and determine the amount of pain in a cat from facial expressions. Found it very interesting.

Might be worth passing on to your vet.

That is pretty interesting. I always wonder what's going on with the cats but I have so little experience 'reading' them. In comparison, dogs seem to telegraph their emotional/physical state so much more intensely.

Thanks for posting the link!
