I understand all of your saying, but those are just general guidelines and don't apply to every cat in world. Metoo is one of those exceptions. She is more "puppy" than a kitten. She is spoiled rotten since her birth and sweet & trusting by nature. She doesn't see anything, including other cats, vacumm, and vet, as threat and will let you do anything to her. There is no way she feels intimidated by my staring. Whenever I play this staring game with her, she just tilt her head and look at me curiously. She never tries to hold the stare in order to win the contest, she wins because she doesn't need to blink. I will never play this game with Meatball though, because she is more of control and attitude and possibly won't appreciate my staring.
BTW, the "blink slowly thing" never work for ether of my cats. Tried it many times before, and they will just give me one "stop being so stupid" look and go on with what they are doing at the time :/
