Ooo, eee, ooo, ah, ah! A little more to the left, pleaaaaaaaaaase!

That was “Bowie” enjoying his morning back rub. In fact, it seemed he couldn’t begin a day without one.

Initially, he’d sit patiently on the floor beside my chair; then he’d stretch and reach up his paws; first to tap my leg to get my attention. He’d then jump up on my lap and stand there, looking (or is it staring?) at me.

If I tried to ignore him, he’d just butt my arm with his head until I paid attention to him–also known as “giving him a back rub!”

Bowie especially loved it when I would rub his ears first, and then run both of my hands down his back to the end of his tail.

In fact, he’d sit with me like that all day if I didn’t finally scoot him off.

Yours in remembering Bowie’s back rubs,

and “The Boys”

P.P.S. Check out our Romper Room. Or look at this; maybe one of these Kitty Scratcher w/ Play Tail Toy and Cat Nip would make a good distraction for a kitty. What do you think?
