    Someone told me that it was a cat? It's just half the head then? Eyes and ears? Is it supposed to be some kind of emotion?

    It's just a different kind of smile. It comes from cat smile tenshodo13 linked above. It's often used in anime as well.

    It means you shouldn't be using that if your balls have dropped.
