They were queueing up to see me today. Poddling (kneeding) my knee. I am so glad they tolerate each other. Black and white filter for black and white cats. You can’t tell but the cat on the right is twice as big as the one on the left. But he’s no bully. He does go outside more than the smaller on. But today peace rained. Then later our girl cat came up and poddled too. Good day x
Two front paws kneading my leg ‘poddling’ making little holes in my skin. Like I’m a mother cat and he’s comforting himself and wanting to relax. It’s so sweet that he does this. He does this every night before he goes to sleep on my lap. That’s when he settles down with his eyes closed and starts purring even more. I feel loved. I know cats can be pests sometimes, but this one is soft and friendly.
Claws and whiskers
Reaching, stretching, paws up, claws out. But he’s only saying hello.
Just look at those whiskers, able to twitch and feel. Helps with moving around in the dark. Used to check a space is wide enough to get through. Pushed forward when he’s interested in something, sniffing and smelling his food or a cat nip toy.
Claws ready to knead and pull, to show he loves you by ‘poddling’. A happy cat….
I once saw a cartoon of a cat on a poster, paws kneading someone’s arm. The picture had a red circle with a diagonal red line across it. Below it, it said something like poddle free Cheshire.
Poddling, a lovely, possibly made up, word to describe when a cat sits on you, claws slightly out, kneading ‘poddling’ your leg. If you have loving cats like mine you end up with hundreds of tiny puncture wounds in your thigh. I try and wear trousers made of thick, dense material to protect myself. Sometimes this behaviour goes on for three or four minutes while my cat gently purrs to herself. It only stops when my hubby walks back in the room, then the cat leaps off and goes away ( he makes her nervous as he is quite loud!)
