Rocket has started a new scratching behavior that I haven't seen before. I have a pillow on my couch which he has been scratching. But it's the way he's scratching that has got me wondering what he's doing it for. He's scratching with his claws retracted, so my first thought was that it's marking, not nail maintenance. But the motion and the body posture and the expression is more like what you'd see in the litterbox. Yup, it looks exactly like he's digging litter, except he's doing it on the pillow. What do you think? Is this marking, or is he getting set to do something nasty on my pillow? Thanks....
