  1. Not all our cats like having their head scratched. Another spot for cats is the back just in front of the tail. We have a number of cats who just love that. As for the head rub, there’s one cat who considers me his and he head rub me all the time.

    All of our dogs like head scratching, some more than others. One will come over and push his head under my hand. Hint hint.

    And in case you’re wondering. 4 dogs, 12 cats. Yes it’s a house with a big back yard, but only one of the cats goes outdoors.
