Does anybody elses cat like "slapsies"?

    Two of my cats like what I call, "Slapsies". You get your hand, make it slightly concave, and then use the part of your hand where your second knuckles are to lightly tap/slap the cat's back around 2 or so inches up from the base of the tail.

    They go nuts for it! the faster the better. They stick their bums in the air and do funny meows. And if you stop they swing round lightening fast to rub and butt your hand and ask for more. Sometimes it seems to feel so good they spack out a bit and turn and bat/bite your hand (tenderly) and then ask for more again.

    It's really weird, but I've since found other cats that like being "slapped" on Youtube.

    Just to clarify, I'm not hitting my cats lol. It's a very specific kind of tapping that you do on a specific part of their back that seems to tickle them in a certain way.


    Anyone else? :D



    Edit:
    Oh, and my step-father-in-law's male BSH loves it, but Tim doesn't like me doing it to him because he hate's Zebedee's reaction and thinks I'm sexually exciting him lol!! :D

    Yep, #'s 1 and 3 cats, Bola and Max love it.

    Bola just moves his head from side to side while kind of smacking his lips, not the best description of his reaction but as good as I can manage. With Max, anybody seeing me do it would swear I was being cruel and actually hitting him, I'm not, he just prefers me to be rough with his *slapsies* before he rolls over for a belly rub that soon develops into a hand kicking frenzy.

    Some of the *bum slapping* cat vids on youtube look really extreme, but it's clear the cats are loving it. This one looks and sounds cruel, but the cat is obviously enjoying every second of it :lol:

    I'm not sure if its exactly the same as you mean but Jones like being smacked around the bum. The sort of pressure you'd use to pat a small dog. He likes quite rough stroking or scratching generally, and being slid around the shiny floor. Weirdo.

    Bob otoh just likes nice cuddles and having his nails filed.

    Haven't attempted to do it to Frank, but he loves the base of his tail scratched, he sticks his bum in the air like a female cat would :D

    All my cats love it especially when I scratch their back on that part.

    They usually arch their back and tails when they love it.

    Nearly all my cats have enjoyed being affectionately*patted* hard or *slapped* (whatever one calls it) on their hindquarters.:D It is just something I have always done with them, but I didn't realise other people also do it with their cats.

    3 of my present cats love it, one of them in particular gets very excited by it! :D
