I check in on this science site pretty much every day, and today I saw this:

Cats Do Have Facial Expressions, We're Just Bad at Reading Them, Study Shows

About halfway down the page, there's a link for you to do a cat facial expressions survey -- you watch some short videos of cats' faces, and decide whether the cat had a positive expression or a negative one.

I tried the short survey, and got 6 out of eight correct. It was harder than I thought! I thought I would do better than I did, lol. The videos are very, very short (1, 2 or 3 seconds long, ack).

How did you do??

I'm going to go take the second version of the survey now (a link at the end of the short version). :)

edit: Whoo!! I liked the second survey better. The cats' faces were a little easier to figure out. I got 7 out of 8 in the second survey!

I missed one for the first quiz and missed 2 on the second one. I guess I did pretty well!
I will admit though, that I was stumped on a couple and only guessed right. :paperbag:

I missed one on the first quiz and got all right on the second. It was hard though because you want to see more of the cat than just the head.

I don't see a place after clicking on the link to go to the quiz.

I did 7/8 on the first quiz and worse on the second (I think 4?) I'm apparently bad at the 'about to throw up' faces.
