Does Your Kitty Have Elevator Butt?
My parents’ Ragdoll cats, Caymus and Murphy, love it when their hind end is scratched – and raise their bottoms up as you pet them, so that you will focus the concentration of the pets on their hind end. Charlie has no interest, and let’s be honest, he’d rather you didn’t. I recently posted this photo of Caymus (the one in this post) on Facebook, and SnorkinOrkin Oda said she called it “Elevator Butt” and when Cathy Rowell said that they call it “Elevator Butt” in their house too – I thought it would be a great blog post!
So, I don’t know if it is just regular cat behavior or just Ragdoll cat behavior? They don’t get mad when they are done being scratched – I have had cats that attempt to bite me if I do it for longer than they want, but it seems with Caymus and Murphy, that all day wouldn’t be long enough to scratch there!
