there's a word for it....

in the comments for this post, Susan mentions that cats make "that face" so they can get a extra good whiff of something. and i vaguely remember seeing that somewhere, so I went looking online and found out it's called the Flehmen reaction (this was one of the few sites that had a picture of a kitty looking funny) seems they're pulling in air over the roof of their mouth and some special sniffer in there. anyhoo, maggie does it more than any cat I've ever seen. (I've only seen Carlos make that face once or twice)
