Unlike humans, cats don’t yawn because they are bored. Nevertheless, we still have common reasons why we humans and other creatures such as cats, yawn. Some are: when we are transitioning from sleep to an alert state, when we cool down ourselves after a very lively activity and stretching of the jaw muscles.

It is very evident based on our experiences that yawns are contagious. If we see someone yawning, then our body has the tendency of doing the same thing. The reason why it’s infectious is still a mystery but that does not keep these felines from showing off their impressive fangs!
