This article teaches you how to pet a cat with ease, whether you're looking for more exercise or just want to show off your new kitty trick. If you've never petted a cat before, this is the best place to start. Below are the basics of petting a cat.
1. Don't Pet the Cat If You Don't Want to Be Picked On
It's a sad fact that many people enjoy the feeling of being pick on, and will do anything to get it. It's not because they're masochistic; it's because they know how to get what they want without being asked. And we all know that cats are picky and jealous creatures. So, if your cat happens to be one of those types, you'll find yourself constantly being "petted" by it day after day. This can be annoying, which is why making them understand the rules is important.It's a sad fact that many people enjoy the feeling of being pick on, and will do anything to get it.

2. Never Pet the Head
It's important to remember that no matter how cute a cat is, it can still be dangerous. You've probably heard this many times before, but cats are naturally fast and agile. This makes them easy to catch off guard and might make you see their face as part of their body. If you're trying to pet a cat and hit its nose instead, you can cause it to get angry and strike at you. Some people like to play with cats in this manner, but most of us don't want to risk our lives every time we want to play with our friends!
3. Don't Pet a Cat When It's Sleeping
You can pet a cat, but don't be annoying about it. Don't poke the cat on the head just because you think it's cute. If it's sleeping that would be rude and annoying. This is where good memory comes in; if you're good at memorizing your friends then you'll likely have no trouble remembering when they're in need of rest. This can come in handy when you want to be sneaky (see section 4).
4. Be Sneaky When You Have to Be
Sometimes your cat will catch on to what you're doing, no matter how much time or patience you put into it. If you want to pet your cat but it's being difficult, you may want to try sneaking up on it. You could sit in a chair right next to your cat and sneak up its leg. It may start kicking or scratching you, but eventually it will let you pet it while it's sleeping. Be sure to give a treat if this happens!
5. Don't Pet the Cat If It Has an Itch
Some cats will let you touch them just so they can scratch themselves afterwards. This is because sometimes even their owners fail to scratch their itching spots for them; after all, cats are pretty independent creatures. This means it's not a good idea to try to pet your cat if it has an itch. If you can, try scratching them around the ears or under their chin so that they have some extra attention from you (and maybe a treat afterwards).
6. Don't Pet the Cat on Its Face
You can pet a cat on its face, but it's important to know when not to do so. If a cat catches you petting their face and they're very angry or upset, they can scratch you very hard or worse, bite your hand! You will have to remember that some cats have learned that if they like being petted all the time, it's probably best not to tell them differently!
Why Shouldn't You Pet a Cat on Top of the Head?
It's important to remember that cats are naturally fast creatures. The fastest thing in the world is a cheetah, and we all know how fast they are compared to other animals (let alone insects). Because cheetahs are able to reach such high speeds, they don't need much time or effort to make sharp turns. This means they can start out at slow speeds and make sharp turns while running at full speed. As a result, you might find yourself wide open whenever you're playing with your cat as it takes off.
Which part of the cat likes to be stroked? And why?
The cat enjoys being stroked because of the pressure and warmth it gives off. The cat also enjoys the feeling of being touched from head to toe because it's not being bothered on any part of its body.
Stoking a cat along their back and tail, however, can cause them to become very irritated and scratch at you. Some cats like to be petted on the back and tail because it's a place they can't reach so easily. This is usually accompanied with a purr that sounds very soothing to the cat.
Another part that the cats enjoy strokin is under the chin.This is due to the fact that this spot can be easily reached. When a cat is stroked under their chin, they will purr and their ears will perked up.
Cats enjoy being stroked on the head, especially if they are scratching themselves. They enjoy how the stroking feels because they don't have to scratch themselves and they can just enjoy the stroking sensation.
The point around the ears is also an area that the cats like to be stroked. This area is very sensitive and when stroked it can make the cat feel relaxed. When a cat enjoys being stroked in this spot, it will close its eyes and lean into your touch.
The cat enjoys being stroked around its paws. This is partially due to the fact that they can have an itch and they can't easily reach it. This will cause them to scratch and attempt to no avail. Stroking them in this area will distract them from their itching and keep them from getting upset.
A cat's temperament is their personality, which is their personality based on the way they act around people, the food they eat, and so on. Cats are very self-assured and will do just about anything to get what they want.
