These TCS kitties illustrate the full range of feline smiles – from bashful grins to all-out guffaws, here are 23 of the derpiest kitty smiles caught on camera! Guaranteed to make YOU smile!

These kitties really did brighten my day! And I was (pleasantly) surprised to see my Frannie in there! Thank you for making and sharing this.

Adorable. But, a few of those smiles looked a bit more like, "Oh, by the way, please notice how many teeth I have and how sharp they are." I never realized that sphynxes don't have whiskers. I thought it was just the fur. Nice to learn something new. Margret
