One of my cats getting up on a lazy Sunday morning. I saw him yawning in front of nice window light and went to get the camera.
To make him yawn again for the camera, I pretended to yawn a few times as he looked at me sheepishly.
Eventually, he yawned again. Don’t know if it is contagious yawning or he was bored by the whole thing.
Is cross-species contagious yawning even possible? Some scientists believe, in the case of humans, it is triggered by empathy.
Didn’t spend too much time wondering. We went back to sleep.
