Once when I was petting and rubbing and giving Oberon skritches, I started to pat him. At first lightly, then vigorously. It sounds like I am thumping a drum. He loves it!

I think it feels like a massage to him. It feels odd since I think I look like I am hitting or beating my cat, but he seems to crave the stimulation. Has anyone else discovered this?

I find my domestic shorthair likes it too, but a bit milder.

I sometimes give Oberon what I call "forced loving". I pick him up and love on him while he meows pathetically in protest like a teenage boy embarrassed to be hugged by his mom.

I just picked him up and thumped him while I held him. He seemed to enjoy it without so much as one pathetic yowl!

I've always patted my cats, although I guess I'm not really aware of doing it. Raiden gets full massages from my husband. He even jumps up onto hubby's lap for them. My massages are not that good, so I don't get the lap treatment. The only time Raiden ever got on my lap was when he was a visiting cat and I think he just wanted to impress me to give him a home. I also can't pick him up for any length of time before he gets antsy and fights to get down.
