Our Tip of the Day:
Many cats can build up energy or get overstimulated during petting sessions. This explains why some kitties will seem to be enjoying a petting, and then will suddenly attack your hand. So, if you're petting your cat and start to notice his or her tail flicking or back twitching, those are signs that kitty has become overstimulated and may no longer be enjoying the petting session. If you start seeing such signs, or if your cat is starting to pull away from you, it would be advisable to end the petting session and give your kitty some space.
