Dear Fancy,

Why does my cat put her rear end up in the air when I pet her lower back?


Dear Rita,

We cats raise our posteriors in the air while getting a good lower back scratch for a few reasons, one being that it feels good. But we also use our hindquarters to communicate. The better you humans can understand your cats, the better you can serve us, which is what every cat wants. So with that in mind, may I recommend this article , which explains how we cats incorporate the rear-most sections of our torsos into our exquisite body language.
