Many cats cadge for scritches, though purrhaps a little less aggressively than this tabby. Our 19-year-old tuxie likes to cuddle up next to (or on top of) my hubby in bed, and works his head beneath hubby’s hand for strokes. Sleeping hubby complies. Skeezix begs for butt pets by headbonking me and then standing on his head with his face in my crotch. Tripper, my 22-lb Tabby is much like the tabby in this video… he’ll let YOU know when he’s had enough petting, so keep that hand going! Mao, my Siamese, has never asked for pets. I think he considers it undignified.

Do any of you kittehs ask for scritches, or do you just take what’s handed to you?
