Here Kitty Kitty – Who Knew There Is A “Proper Way” To Pet A Cat!
Meet the Ettl cats. Harper has the black left eye , Hazel has the black right eye. They are a couple of the nicest cats you'll ever meet - BUT there is a right way and a wrong way to show cats your love.
According to science, as reported by Yahoo News, cats can enjoy your touch one minute, and then be swiping at you the next and it turns out we might not really be petting them correctly.
Modern cats have genetics very similar to those of their wildcat ancestors, so their brains are still wired to think like them. Wildcats live solitary lives, and don't really communicate in a social manner, while humans are an inherently social species. So to pet a cat properly, you must first give the animal the choice to indicate whether or not they even want to be touched, where, when and for how long. In other words, it's a cat's world and we just live in it!
Most cats like being touched around the regions where their facial glands are located, including the base of their ears, under the chin, and around their cheeks. These areas are usually preferred over areas such as their stomach, back, and base of their tail.
But then "cat ladies" know this!
