Withering scorn

What is it about a cat looking over its shoulder that makes it look scornful and disapproving?
I personally think it's the direct gaze. Cats rarely look you directly in the eye, and when they do, it's usually to threaten or challenge. Witness:

This one knows she's trespassing.

She was stalking a bird moments earlier.

My friend's mom's Demon Cat. I could tell you some hair-raising stories of him. He was not named Cain for nothing.

From my collection of photos taken on film.
