Cat Version of Ecstasy

Our cat Peep goes into an orgy of paw-licking if you scratch her right at the base of her tail. At first I thought that meant there was something wrong with her, but now I understand it’s a not uncommon cat reaction to having her butt scratched. And there are weirder reactions than that. I am told these all denote pleasure bordering on ecstasy. Hey, take it where you find it.

  1. All of my kitties had similar reactions to butt/tail scratching, but it’s not limited to cats. My dogs and my wolves had those reactions too – not the licking, but ears and heads down, eyes closed and shoulders relaxed. Maybe it’s like having a back or neck massage. 🙂
