Staring is a sign of affection, too. And blinking at you. Perhaps your cat is just expressing love but it looks "menacing."

My friend's cat was staring at him like that, too. The cat ate his face while he was sleeping that night. And then he died.

It's just the way cats' faces go sometimes -- "menacing" is your subjective assessment of her expression. R5 is right: when a cat fixes its gaze on you, it's complimenting you by paying attention (for a change).

My mother told me that our cat was very protective of me as a baby and a toddler.
She'd wake them up if I cried, even before they heard me. As a toddler she would scratch/bite anyone who came near me--other than my parents.

R19, maybe the cat flew, in a cat carrier under the seat, with its gay male child-phobic owner, surrounded by a plane full of screaming babie, and is just trying to "fit in" with its owner's sensibilities (hee-hee!)

I was sitting on the couch, watching TV absentmindedly stroking Mojo, she was purring whilst sitting in that Sphinx position, drowsing a bit. Her eyes opened up wide and she did that slow head turn thing that you see in zombie movies and she just stared at me. Purring stopped, slowly rose to a sitting position all the while looking me dead in the eye. I took my hand away and stared back and she slowly turned her head back, lay back down, resumed purring and looked at my stroking hand and then back at me. I resumed stroking, she Sphinxed and it was as if nothing had happened.
But, very weird. She had never done that before and hasn't since then.

How do you know its menacing. Cats aren't exactly human/human eyes. Cats like to stare sometimes, its probably just a stare. The rest is in your imagination.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||01/06/2013|
Usually, if you stare right back, a cat will back down. They stare as a challenge, and when you stare back and hold the stare long than they can, it rattles them and they will usually walk off.

R43, I had a cat that was protective like that. Sometimes, cats are very attuned to one person.
I love when my kitties stare at me. I usually feel a burst of joy and I am compelled to go squeeze their furry bodies and kiss them on the head. Try that, OP. See what happens.
My kitties are almost a year old. They are the least-talkative cats I've ever had. One has started chirping at me when it's just the two of us. I don't know why they're not talkers.

Your cat texted me and here's what it was thinking:
"You brought HIM home? Damn, gurl, those are some serious beer goggles."
"That outfit....this bitch clearly doesn't have a full length mirror up in here..."
"What's with this cheap IKEA shit? I need some Room and Board furniture to scrape my ass against..."

I love your cat, R43. My ex was having several affairs and was rarely home. My basset hound apparently didn't approve. She squatted and peed right in front of him while looking over her shoulder as if to say, "Take this, M-Fer."

It always amazes me that men would want to own cats. Dogs are faithful, true-unto-death companions. They will throw their life away to protect you from attack. A cat will hide under the bed and then look for another stooge to feed it Puss in Boots no. 3 or whatever. Cats are truly disgusting, and gay men who own cats turn into drooling effeminate freaks.
