I was scratching Wallace in his favorite scratching position and thought it would be fun to hear about what other cats like. You see, we think this is the funniest thing, the way he likes to be scratched. First he comes up to you and gives this funny high pitched meow, he's a very big boy so it sounds funny. Then you say, Wally Baby and he gets all excited. You then pick him up and then you roll him on his back on your lap while you're sitting. Now most kitties would make the mad dash, scratch, bite or whatever. No, this boy is totally excited! So you have him on your lap, hairy belly side up, with his feet all arched over his belly and then you cradle his head...rather like a baby and give the scratch under the chin. He LOVES this, he is in total ecstacy. He could do this forever it seems. It is so funny to see this as his feet are totally in the air. Anyway, we decided it must feel awfully nice, all cats seem to like being scratched under the chin and we wonder if he likes this particular postion because it stretches his back or something. Then, when the scratching is done, he likes to stretch by raising his front legs over his head and he hangs over our knees (we stretch out our legs at this point) and stretches. He totally loves this and then when he's done he slides off and is a very happy cat! I'm so glad we can make our kitty so happy.
