A way to help calm a tense cat

Had 4 stray cats, but lost 2 to cancer over the last 2 years.
RIP So hard to lose them. :'(

Try this to help an uneasy cat relax around you:

When the cat looks at you, do a slow blink at him, then look away. After a few seconds, look back and do the slow blink again. Don't stare, it can be mistaken for a "challenge". If it works, the cat will respond by blinking back at you. This seems to be non-verbal cat language for "I want to be friends."
