I find it curious that this community defines the ":3" emoji as "mmmm" or
"om nom nom". In my circles it's quite the frequent emoticon/emoji, but
I've never seen it used this way. Instead, they usually employ it as "cat
mouth" or "cat face", implying the mood of cuteness, perkiness or
mischievousness. (This is distinct from U+1F431 CAT FACE in that it
represents a human making a cat-like mouth, not an actual cat.) Here are a
few images found through a web search for "cat face":

Here's the relevant TVTropes article:

(TVTropes, incidentally, is one of the many web forums which has a :3
textual emoji.)

And the KnowYourMeme page:
