Pinky's quirky, to say the least. I've posted before about how much she likes to be outside in the heat---the hotter, the better--and, fortunately for her, we were more than able to accommodate that quirk of hers this year with a summer that was the third hottest in history in our town (Memphis).
One of her quirkier behaviors is the way she reacts when I pat her, almost violently, on her back at the base of her tail. She absolutely LOVES it when I pat her there, the harder (and faster) the better. She crouches down on her hind legs and sticks her head straight up in the air when I do that, and if I stop, she'll lick the hand I was doing it, so much as to say, "aw, c'mon dad, you can do that a little more."
Has anyone ever encountered behavior like that or have an explanation for why this cat enjoys that so much?
