Following work 14 years ago showing that sheep like smiles, researchers in London have now found that goats do too.

Here’s a write-up in VICE, and here’s the paper itself, which also shows that the effects depend a bit on laterality (something I’m always always a sucker for). I do wish a search of the paper revealed the word “blind” though.

Also, clearly the obvious question is: when is someone going to do something similar with cats?
