Petting the Floofy Kitty

Quote of the Day
There is something about the presence of a cat... that seems to take the bite out of being alone. ~Louis J. Camuti

Well, we thought we were going to tell you the story about Praline and the Kirby monster, but Mom has been on the phone with the Dell man for 4 hours about her "new" laptop and it is now after midnight and Mom must travel to Beaufort, SC tomorrow morning, which is over a 3 hour drive one-way. I want Mom to make it back safely, so we will share that story another time.

Instead, we are g0ing to show all of the special places to pet (or rub your noses in ) the floof of a flat-face floof kitty.

The Head, the Ears, and the Chin

A cat must really trust the bean to allow their hands to touch the face, nose, head, chin and ears. I love for my mom to rub her finger along side my sweet little nose and up beside my eyes. I help her to do this by licking her finger and move my head up and down and she washes my eyes this way. I can't reach that part, so this has become a routine with the two of us. It feels so good.


The next part is the back. This is the long, luxurious fur that shines! This is also one of the parts that must be combed or brushed every day. I like for mom to start from the top of my head and run her hand all the way down my back and then to the tip of my tail. She gets some long purrs for that.



The unique spot that many beans don't think about it the floofy tail. You must really know the kitty well and he/she must really trust you, but playing with the tail is a very unique experience.



And the bestest spot for petting a floofy kitty is right on the belly. I know some kitties that don't like this, but I love it. I just spread further and further out and let my mom just run her fingers through my fur!




I have received an award and a meme, and we will get these posted within the next day.

You are such a sweetheart, the Zoolatry Human is very jealous. Maggy & Zoey are not too fond of petting of any kind... and brushing, combing or grooming... that is a story best never told!

Ana said...

Chica also likes snuggling and stroking all over, also her belly and tail. Well, Pumuckl is very ticklish in many places so he just allows to be petted in his face and back :-)

Hope you Mom has a safe trip!

Hi Praline,
That is so sweet that you like to be petted by your Mommy. We like it too - but only when WE decide it's okay, hehehehe.

Thanks for that explanation on all the spots that a floofy kitty likes to be petted. Zoey, the floofy one, has never shared that with us.
