Lesson: The Fur Pull

How to explain the Fur Pull?  It sounds harsh, yet it's not.  Humans and kitties love it!  It starts as a petting process, then the human pulls at the kitties fur a wee little bit.  Sometimes there is a back-and-forth movement between the two hands, which makes the kitty wiggle a bit.  I can assure you, both the kitty and the human end up purring together, in a symphony of yumminess.  

Here are action photos, as The Hubby practices a lying down Fur Pull on Angel:

I personally prefer the two-sided Fur Pull, when I place my hands on each side of a standing cat, and grab ahold of fur on either side of the cat's back. When I push-pull with both hands, the kitty's purrs start going up in volume, and the smile on my face gets bigger!  Sometimes the cat's head is toward me; other times it's away.

The Fur Pull is a big hit around our house, with both the inside and The 'O' Cats.  I practiced it on Magoo while visiting him a few weeks ago.  Try it!


  1. I (Elliott) like it; so does Izzy. In fact, Izzy goes mental with licking our mom's hands while she's doing it!

  5. I've never heard of this. I'll see what my kitties think. :-) Our Sam loved to be brushed, and sometimes I would brush her fur backwards (like against the grain) and she liked that. I guess it kind of massages their skin?

  6. We'll have to try the fur pull in our house. Thanks for the detailed how-to!
