He's bruxing. It can either mean that he's nervous or that he's really happy. Also, sometimes when they brux while they're really happy they'll wiggle their eyes in and out really fast. None of mine have ever done that, but I saw a video of it once and it looks really freaky.

Buxing is awesome, better then cat purrs anytime. (at least in my opinion) Eye boggling is so cute too! (once my rat boggled so much I thought her little eyes were going to pop out of her head, lol) I've tried to catch it on film, but it apparently freaks them out (and they abruptly stop) I thought about hiding a camera and trying to film it that way. Any ideas??
