Oooh yeah...that's the spot!

Growing up with dogs, I didn't really know or understand how to "pet" a cat. All of my dogs were big dogs (collies, golden retrievers, etc.), so they'd just roll over on their backs and you could just scratch those bellies like crazy. The dogs would LOVE that!!! You obviously can't be so rough on a cat...cats are much smaller than my big dogs, and much more sensitive to touch.

It didn't take me long to find "the spots" on my kitties. Both cats actually have the same spots --- under the chin and behind the ear/on top of the head. Once you start scratching there, they purr like motor boats! What I love is that when I'm scratching their ears, they will nuzzle up to me and basically direct my hand to where they want to be pet/scratched.
