A funny video shows the hilarious moment a cat sniffed her owner’s feet, before immediately regretting it.

Rose the cat was caught sniffing her owner Hannah’s feet, before looking as though she seriously regretted it with an experession of shock and disgust.

Hannah recorded the video at her home in Gorton, Manchester.

She said: ‘In the video, Rose gets a little too comfortable smelling my feet and obviously she had quite a reaction to the smell”

‘The expression on her face says it all and I could not help but laugh my head off. It made me happy to see that she has such a personality.’

You might have seen your own cat making that expression before – but it doesn’t actually always mean they’ve smelt something bad, it could just be that the scent is rather interesting and they’re just taking it in.

When you spot your cat with its mouth partially open and upper lip pulled back, in which they look disgusted, after smelling something, it’s actually called the ‘Flehmen response’.

According to PedMeds, your cat has something called a Jacobson’s organ, which is located in the roof of the mouth behind the front teeth.

When your cat smells something interesting, that strange face they make is actually the cat drawing the scent into the Jacobson’s organ to get a better smell.

The tongue traps the scent and transfers it to the vomeronasal organ in the roof of the mouth for better analysis.

So, while it may look like your cat is super disgusted (and you never know, after smelling feet they might be), don’t always take offence, because it’s just your cat taking in a rather interesting smell.
