- First look at your cat. Soften your gaze, remove all challenge to his perception by understanding the difference between staring and soft eyes.
- Second, match the eye blink to the silent phrase I LOVE YOU
- Eyes open on I
- Eyes fall slowly closed on LOVE
- Eyes open again on YOU
- If you are relaxed and your intentions are pure, you cat will respond first by blinking, then by relaxing, then by dropping his guard
