Supurr Friday Greetings Pawesome Pals

It's Friday again, mew know we can't believe how quickly time flies! MOL  We'll be announcing the winner of my Epically Epic Birthday Give-Away on Sunday, the winner is going to be delighted when they see what they're getting - WOO HOO!

Anyhoo, moving on, we've got a rather purrplexing question fur mew all today.

The other evening when me and The 'B' Team were chilling, as we do aftur a hectic day the P.A. decided that she was going to conduct a little experiment.

Mew see when Smooch lost his leg aftur his rather unfortunate RTA, the P.A. noticed that his back paw wasn't ticklish at all, on any level.  Mew can tickle his back left thumper until the Kraken comes home and he just doesn't acknowledge anything is happening.


So the P.A. in all her wisdom decided that she was doing the back thumper tickle test [BTTT] - yes seriously this happened, purrsonally I think she should have spent her time answering comments on our blog, but no, she was adamant that the BTTT was a go.

As mew can see I was rather chilled out in a complete Zen Harmonies Zone when she crept up and began to tickle my back left thumper, in fact I found it rather relaxing, much like reflexology fur cats.

"Don't stop," I said as my purring ramped up several notches.

"I'm going to do the right paw now," she said a few moments later.

Well, let me tell mew, my Zen Harmonies where shattered in less time than it took to say, "'l'll have four Number fives with a side order of fries!"

My back right thumpur is uber ticklish.  She then went on to test:

Parsley
Fudge 
and
Smooch

Amber and Pandora refused at point blank range to join in. with the threat of finger amputation ensuing should the P.A. not take heed.

So what did we learn from this experiment?

Me, Smooch, Parsley and Fudge all have totally non-ticklish back left thumpers and our right back thumpers are a complete NO GO ZONE!

Our question to mew dearest furriends is:

Is it your left back thumper or right back thumper that is ticklish?

As we're all righties, so that four out of six, and we were wundering if all cats are the same, do let us know in the comments.

We know this this is a totally pointless, fruitless waste of time but now we're curious!! MOL 


If mew missed anything during the last week, here's the latest links fur your purrusal!




We'll be back on the morrow with a really cool Crafting with Cats post, so we're sure mew won't want to miss that, and then we'll be back again with our usual Selfie Selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then.

In the meantime we wish mew all an epically epic weekend!

Happy Hopping

Sweetest purrs & nose bumps

  7. Binga happened to be lying down behind my human in our office chair, so she was put to the test... and yes, my human got to keep all her digits! Actually, she didn't respond much at all. Her right back foot did seem a little more twitchy, but she didn't have much response to either foot being messed with. So apparently she doesn't care much at all!

    1. Hey Summer, how fortunate that Binga was available fur the BTTT, so your finding were rather interesting and would go into the cat-egory of 'not fussed really'!!! MOL XOX
