Why Do Cats Wink  - 3 Reasons For it

betterwithcats.net

1. Just Like Blinking, It’s About Communication

A winking cat is still closing an eye in your presence, showing trust by being vulnerable and limiting its ability to see its surroundings.

2. Your Cat Is Tired And Sleepy

Again, this might not look exactly like the wink that humans do, but if the process of sleepily blinking is slow enough, it can certainly look like a wink.

3. It Could Be Allergies

Allergies might cause them to water or even wink, especially if one eye is affected more than the other.

When Should You Worry?

If your cat is winking rapidly or the winking is combined with redness, pawing, or discharge from the eye it’s a good idea to consult your veterinarian.
